Thread Details

This is the most powerful low profile graphics card you can get, on both AMD and nVidia side. It has GDDR5 memory, does not require an external power cable and fits into a single slot. It offers the best performance you can fit into a small-factor PC.

Sorry, I don't know of any HTPC/low profile-specific websites. What I know is based on too much researching video cards deals. The previous poster may not have given you too much actionable information, so here is what I know:

1) The only real low-profile options between the HD 6450 and the HD 7750 are:
  • HD 6570/HD 7570
  • HD 6670
2) Neither of those is a good value:
  • HD 6570 and its OEM rebadge HD 7570 are in the $50 range (and are usually DDR3)
  • Low-profile version of HD 6670 with GDDR5 is $70 AR
3) nVidia's low-profile offerings are even more limited in this performance range and are usually priced higher than comparable Radeons.

4) If you must stick to low-profile and $90 for an HD 7750 is too much for you (price- or performance-wise), I would look on eBay/Craigslist for an HD6570/7570 or an HD 6670. You are not likely to find a sub-$50/$70 deal on those from the major online retailers.
Where does HD3000 & HD4000 sit between all these cards and low profile options?
Just want to know what would be worth the upgrade, is there a successor the the 7750 coming soon?

According to the tonymacx86 website, the radeon 7xxx series is supported as of OS X 10.8.3 - but I don't know anything more than that or whether you need to adjust anything (I've never done an hackintosh, although it might be fun to do one when Haswell comes out in the NUC form factor). The radeon 7750 is listed as a card that is supported - I imagine this card would be the most powerful low profile card for the hackintosh as well. But you'll need to do more research and go from there.

I do believe there is a mac specific radeon 7950, but obviously that will not be low profile.
Never heard of the NUC form factor, is it similar to mitx?
I wonder if this is the cheapest it has ever been?
I miss the deal Frown

Radeon HD 6450 is a hair above Intel HD 4000. It's definitely faster than HD 3000 but not really worth the upgrade, unless the discrete card will give you some features/options you may be missing with the onboard video.

Everything else in that list is a definite step (or two or three) up. Take a look at this

Great card. Low power consumption and good performance. Works fine with 200W PSU and A8-3870k (100W CPU) in a mini-itx case. 3dmark11 gets p3000+.

Basically, what dealseeker says. The 6450 is not really worth the upgrade over HD 4000 unless there is a feature you need that is missing from HD 3000/4000. This 7750 is a pretty nice upgrade and went right in to my OptiPlex with the q6600 with no problems. For $89 AR, it's a nice pickup for HTPC's. I haven't tried it very long or played around too much like with the settings, but it looks like Arkham Asylum runs really smooth at 1080p.

As for a 7750 successor, there were rumors of an 8750 (Wikipedia, never the best of sources, had it with similar specs as the 7770) and that might have been the 8000 generation slot power card. But that was just rumors, not sure when AMD is coming out with retail 8000 series card. Some might say that the 7790 gpu was the only HD 8000 gpu that will come out.

It's like mitx, maybe smaller. You can look at it here.

Motherboard is apparent 4 by 4 inches. There will probably be similar models - such as from Zotac, etc. The Intel NUC format is kind of like a PC version of the Mac Mini (of course, the Mac Mini is Intel inside these days). It'll run off the integrated graphics, but I'm curious if there will be a version with the big Haswell (with GT3e).

as far as normal street prices, yes.....but there are still deals to be had now and again.

When I picked up my 2560x1440 Shimian, I just needed any ole cheap card to run it since the on chip video for intel cpu's don't do dual link DVI. I don't really need the performance for anything so any ole cheap 6450 or something would of worked. I ended up picking up a passive HIS 6570 from Microcenter that was on sale for $45 + $20MIR making it about $25, which was literally only a few dollars more then the 5450's and 6450's they had on the shelf.
