RX550, GT1030, OR GTX750/GTX750 Ti for a 240W Power Supply

I would say a 750 ti, 950, 760 maybe? You could get a cx450m for 20 bucks after rebate

This is a SFF PC, won't fit an ATX PSU. These machines use proprietary PSUs, so you're stuck with those 240W, and often a 25W limit on the PCIe slot.

I've recently watched the "Upgrading the $69 dollar gaming PC" video and wanted to try it on my HP Compaq system as well. I currently have an R7 240 in it (yes, I've "modified" the case to fit it in) and I don't have to worry about the power limit since it's just around 20-25 max TDP. Now, I want to upgrade it, so I'm looking for the perfect GPU to fit it in there without comprimising safety. The prices are kind of near each other, and so I don't have a problem with that. I would like the GTX750/750ti since it gives the best performance out of the three. The RX550 is just slightly lower than the GT1030, but also cheaper at around $8-$10.

 

TL;DR Which graphics card should I put on a system with a 240W max power supply.

The GT1030 (GDDR5 mind you, not the DDR4 version because it's utter crap) is a safe buy, as it almost always works. The most powerful option is the GTX750Ti, but you'll have to see if it will actually power up.

There's no reason to suspect a 750 Ti wouldn't work. It gets all its power from the PCIe slot. It's also a good deal stronger and cheaper than the 1030.

Make sure to quote or tag me (@JoostinOnline) or I won't see your response!

Some of these HP SFF PCs are artificially limited to only provide 25W through the PCIe slots, that's the catch.

low spec gamer (i think it was him) posted a video on youtube where he gamed on VR on a gt 1030 and actually got pretty good FPS after he turned the scaling ALL the way down.. but the game still looked pretty good and there were not any frame drops

 

(he tested superhot and elder scrolls V VR)

cuz a 1070ti can run VR on max settings at better FPS then a 1030

that helps too cause the 1030 is trash (but not bad) and can mostly run games at 720

Thanks for the replies! I have decided on a GT 1030 mainly because of its 30W max TDP, which is the same as my current R7 240. The RX550 falls short to the GT1030--- at the same price. The 750ti's power consumption would just be too high; not worth risking the entire pc for a mere 10-15fps. 

 

I also forgot to mention that I was only planning to play Dota 2, CS:GO, Fortnite, LoL, Killing Floor 2, and some triple A games on 720p resolution because my 1080p one is on my main pc.
