The uninformed keep suggesting adding a low-profile video card, or asking what video card to add. Just look at the picture of the back. This ultra-slim desktop does NOT have room for even a low-profile video card. It can upgrade to a MXM video board... but of still somewhat low quality graphics compared to regular LP discrete graphics options and will also likely need a better power supply.

Not sure why all the down votes. Processor alone is worth the $150. Upgrade the RAM and probably the HD and this is a solid machine.

You can upgrade to a MXM video card. I put a K1000M in one of mine just to see if its possible but you need to buy the larger 200W power supply and get a heatsink to put on the card since MXM cards don't come with their own cooling. It was a fun experiment but not really worth the effort. Be careful with the form factor of the MXM card as well, only takes the short ones (ends at the screw mounts) and not the longer ones that keep going for 1-2" more.

For examples on size... This will work

But this will NOT...

Look at the length and the screw holes on there when looking at cards to make sure you get one that fits.

I put one of these heatsinks on it and made a shroud to use the exhaust fan on the back to create enough cooling.

Here is the video card that actually came as an option for this system and it comes with the heatsink

It sucks though, I'd rather say stock or get the K1000M or something like that.

No hdmi. Little to no room for dedicated graphics. Good system at a decent price for some. Not a great deal. These sff systems from hp at a dime a dozen.

Even so, has nice 6000+ benchmarks and 4 cores.

I definitely picked one up. Take it up to 8GB and throw a TB in and I should be around 250. Will make a nice box for music production(Pro Tools).

Just need a displayport - HDMI cable, and this one has 2 display ports.


Pretty bad feedback
Good price for a larger cased unit.

I've bought many items from them. If there was ever an issue, they addressed it. Free shipping both ways.

Have two and confirm... put 8GB RAM and a SSD in there and this thing is a great small computer. Upgrades probably set you back another 100 dollars but even at 250 with the upgrades this is a fine machine.

How about apples-to-apples instead of apples-to-oranges? The OP's unit is small and less than 10LB, the ones you linked are much heavier, larger and bulkier. Definitely a world of difference depending on what you need to use it for.

And 90% of the replies on these deals are "can I fit a video card in it?". Similar specs for much less.
