    Thanks to Khalmado, I bought that same card second hand off Reddit for $130. Major steal!

    So my dad has a HP Pavilion 500 desktop that he doesn't need. It's in great shape and I want to give it to my niece and nephew (12, 14 yrs) for mild gaming. The computer they currently have is ancient and would stutter playing minecraft. Anyway, this HP has 1 pci-express 2.0 gpu slot. And its a tiny case so I can't get a big card in there. I was thinking a MSI GeForce GT 730 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...9SIA73M6XS9657 . The PSU is 300w and this card only draws 49w, is that ok? I haven't had to work with such a bare bones system in a while so I want to make sure there isn't an overdraw of power or if I should pursue another GPU. Thanks!

    You'd probably be better off going for a GT 1030 instead, which has replaced the GT 730 on the market and is significantly faster. It's still a small card with a low power draw. A GT 1050 is a major step up, and still not a giant card, but does require a bit more power (far as I know they're less of a guaranteed thing with prebuilt systems and smaller PSUs).

    That sounds great, thank you!
