    Hi is it worth upgrading from the low profile 4550 to the low profile 4650, I use the 4550 now, and I was wondering if it's worth it. Thanks :confused:

    Probably not, I'd go for a 5750

    He can't if he needs something low profile...I wouldn't say it's worth the upgrade though, unless you can sell your 4550 for a reasonable price.

    There is not a big selection of low profile cards around.

    AMD would probably release 55** - 56** series cards soon, which should be low profile. I would wait for them as there is not much performance boost from teh 4550 to the 4650. But then again, it depends on what you need it for.

    Would be nice if they did, but i use the present card for gaming. With having an slimline system, there's not a lot of choice out there.

    Low profile 9600GT? The Galaxy one seems to be the cheapest available.
