Question  Question by BobH

I have a HP compaq dc 5700 small form factor with s spare PCI 16 slot. However there is only a small amount of height in the case. Would this card fit with e supplied low profile bracket. If not can you recommend a suitable card (256mb will be fine)
Thanks Bob Harding

Answer by andrewn on Wednesday, January 25, 2012
Low profile cards are a standard size, so if the PC takes low profile cards this should fit.

HOWEVER, the spec for that system says "2 low profile PCI, 1 low profile PCI Express x1" - note that PCI and PCI-E are NOT the same, so I do not think that this would work; your system seems to support only PCI (not Express) graphics cards, which you may have to track down on the second hand market as they have not been manufactured for a number of years now.

I got this information from here:

(under 'Expansion Slot').

Comment by mikemanc

Is this greater or equal to an nVidia 7800? There are no 7000, 8000 or 9000 series nvidia cards on here to compare it to.

Response by andrewn
Should be very slightly better than a 7800GTX in terms of raw processing, and will provide a few other bells and whistles such as DX11 support. The nVidia 7XXX, 8XXX and 9XXX series cards are pretty much ancient history now, we still get them in stock occasionally, but they are now few and far between.

Question  Support active 3d? by techno

Does this card support active 3D? I see in the spec it is HDMI 1.3a, I thought HDMI 1.4 and above was required for active 3D?

Answer by daniele on Thursday, December 29, 2011
No, this card does not support any form of S3D - active or passive.

Question  HDCP by Gingr

Hi, I've had a mare buying passively cooled video cards that were supposed to be HDCP compliant and aren't. Is this definitely HDCP compliant so I can watch Blue Rays?


Answer by mohamedA on Friday, November 18, 2011
i belive this should be hdcp compliant though i cannot guarantee that , the nvidia website says it supports blueray 3d so i guess you shouldnt have problems with bluerays , it does mention however that you will need a software program like the ones provided by cyberlink/arcsoft etc to play blueray3d
