Hello. I would like to know which gpu would be the best possible upgrade for my small form factor dinosaur pc.  I need a low profile card so I'm very limited in my choices. Not looking to run on ultra or anything like that just want to get a little more life out of it till I save enough to buy a new system. Mostly use it for Steam, WoW & D3


Not sure what info I need to post so here is what I can find:


Gateway sx2380-ew378 (yes I know its old).

Processor: AMD A8-5500 APU  3.20 GHz

Ram: 10GB of DDR3

OS: Windows 10 (64-bit)

Motherboard: Gateway  P/N:  DB.GDS11.001

MFR P/N:  DAA75L-Vic, 11107-1, 48.3HK01.011

Form Factor:  DTX

AMD A75 Chipset

Socket FM2

Supports AMD A4-Series Processors

Four memory slots support DDR3 SDRAM up to 16GB

PCI Expansion: 1 x PCIe x1 & 1 x PCIe x16

Integrated Graphics:  AMD Radeon HD 7560D

Dedicated video ram: 512 MB


Would the MSI RX 460 2GT LP be compatible?


I've looked everywhere for the answer & came up with nothing. This is my last hope. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
