Default Radeon X600 upgrade path

My Hewlett Packard m1090n (3.6GHz, upgraded to 3GB ram) has a defective
Radeon x600 video card. Since I have to replace the card anyhow, I would
like to utilize this opportunity to upgrade to a higher end video card. I
should probably stick with the same brand. So, what would be a suitable ATI
card? It should be PCI Express, and the computer has a 300w power supply. I
could replace the power supply, but would prefer to avoid doing so. Lastly,
I don't have an empty slot below the video card, unless I move the soundcard
to a different slot. I run mostly business apps, do a lot of email and web
surfing, and do some video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro. Any suggestions
would be appreciated.

.... has a defective Radeon x600 video card.


RMA the card to ATI to get a new card. ATI tries to ship back new card
within a week.

This isn't a card bought throug ATI, but was a part of the HP-system.
If it is a warrentyissue, HP is the one that should be contacted.
Could also be that it's out of warrenty, as HP standard warrenty in
most areas is 1 year (can be extended for extra cost I guess).

I guess a Radeon X1300-based board will suite you needs.

That's a good thought, I think I'll give it a try. Specs for this card say a
300w power supply is adequate, which is nice since I won't have to change
the ps. One question, if you or any else knows...it includes a "7 pin
S-Video to HDTV (YPbPr) cable". However, even if it will fit, how can the
resulting signal be HDTV? S-Video is a much lower lever signal compared to
hidef, so it doesn't make sense.

Because that's technically not an S-video connector, which normally has only
4 pins.
