As you can tell by the title the computer I'm looking to upgrade is a Dell Vostro 230, there are previous threads from a year or more ago which I did not want to bump so I have chosen to start a new one.

For a low power solution which of the 3 would be best? Or would they work? Or is there a better low power alternative solution? Or even other alternatives?

Please give suggestions on the topic, I'd love to get some feedback and recommendations on the topic.
low power and gaming doesn't really mix....imho

I have more or less the same unit which I use as an HTPC..I'm not a gamer but with the power draw of the unit alone + the video card, it's enough for the power supply to support it...

if you put in more ram and a bigger video card, that might max out or your p/s might not be able to support it anymore...you can try but you bear the risk of breaking the p/s and the components tied to it like the mobo and such...
