If you want a graphics card that bad I'd suggest buying a new case and moving all your components over.. If you can and do decide to do this you may have to get a new power supply that would fit the new case as the power supplies in those thin computers are too small for a normal size case.

If you're able to stuff a graphics card in there (Most of the thin computers i've seen only come with 2 extra pci slots and no pci-e) you're going to have heat issues.

Agreed, a bigger case is what's needed. You'll run into overheating problems pretty quick if you get it in that case.

That 220 watt PSU is not going to run anything above a 4650/4670

The 4670 is comparable to the 9600gt in most benchmarks.

He doesn't need to get a bigger case.

He needs to get a low profile card such as this: XFX Radeon HD 4550 Low Profile Ready Video Card

"Minimum 300 Watt Power Supply Requirement"

220watt power supply would be cutting it too close for my liking..

I think his powersupply and case should be able to use this.

It's cheaper too.

He should be fine
