Low profile PCI Express...any good?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm about to buy a docking station for my Lenovo T61, primarily so that I can slot in a decent video card to get my sims looking and working well.

The docking station has a bay for one "full height and half length" or one "low profile" PCI Express card.

Am I going to be able to lay my hands on a card that fits these size requirements but still offers an appreciable increase in video performance, particularly 3D apps such as Flight Sim etc?

If you can recommend any brands and models to consider I'd be most grateful.

I don't know about specific brands, but the nVidia 8800 GTS with 640MB RAM seems to be very popular. The 8800 GTX is even faster, if you can afford it. Don't get the 8500 or 8600 series cards as these are budget cards and not very good for gaming.
