I own two of these pavilion models
one I bought at wallyworld for $500 a few months ago:eek:
and the other I got on ebay also brand new in box for $320 shipped:banghead:
I bought that one for my daughter

I am looking at getting a gts 250 more then likely the Evga superclocked 1gb version
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130470
One for the price and
Two for the size

I am sticking with the stock Hp case for now
so I dont have alot of room to work with.
If someone can tell me of some other cards I should look into for around the same price and
size I would be greatfull.:respect:

I can afford to Spend about $180 total
The GTS 250 might be good enough for one of those systems... probably about the right amount of power to not be limited by the processor or anything. I'd probably just get the 512MB version if it saves any $.
