Exclamation GTX550 TI in mini tower help!
Hello,
I purchased a GeForce GTX550 IT graphics card a while back only to realize it wouldn't fit into my computer's case (it's a mini ). I was wundering if perhaps theres a way to hook this up externally? I believe it would need a seperate power supply, if it doesn't could you possibly give me the link to a moderatelly priced one that fits my case.
System specs:
Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit
AMD Athlon II X2 220 dual core processor
Nvidia GeForce 6150SE
DVD-Super Multi Drive
4GB DDR3 mem.
500GB HDD

No. Video cards connect directly to the motherboard. There aren't any external options, much less a way of using an internal card externally.
