Most Favorable Review

Works GREAT in an HP Elite 8300 SFF 3.4GHz i5! (most powerful GPU for this SFF machine?)

MSI GeForce GT 730 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card N730K-2GD5LP/OC

Pros: SMALL QUIET LOW POWER CONSUMPTION MINECRAFT @ HIGH SETTINGS/FPS SKYRIM runs @ ULTRA HIGH settings LEAGUE OF LEGENDS also runs great Had it for almost 2 years and this computer stays on 24/7/365 and NO signs of trouble

Cons: i honestly can't think of any cons.

Overall Review: We were searching high and low for the MOST POWERFUL GPU that would PHYSICALLY fit in SMALL FORM FACTOR (SFF) version of the HP Elite 8300 SFF 3.4GHz i5 4GB machine, and would fit as far as POWER CONSUMPTION. If you look at the various specs of the GPU card, and the power supply, and logic board, it looks like it wouldn't work, or would be a close call. Fortunately i had seen a report on Tom's Hardware that a person was using this card in their hp elite 8300 sff and they were doing the same basic activities the kids wanted to be able to do, and this made me brave enough (or dumb enough?) to try it. I'm SO glad we did. It works AWESOME. p.s. It is in a dual OS booting machine that runs both Windows 7 Professional 64bit, and it also run Ubuntu 17.10 AWESOMELY. No issues with graphics of any kind on either machine. This card is GOLD!
