    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 :p). 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.
