I've gotten a hold of the m91p 7033d54 tower and was looking online everywhere to see if i could add a video card to this computer. I realize there are other posts about m91ps discussing the range of ati HD6600 series to the 7700s but I wanted to be extra sure for my own computer's sake. If anyone has or had a thinkcentre m91p 7033d54 (since there are multiple models of the m91p, I suspected the power consumption is different), please let me know if you added a video card! or... if anyone is familiar with this model of the m91p, please help me out! I realize since it is a compact tower that I'd need a small and low-profile video card. Thank you!

Because a 6670 will work in a SFF, and has a higher power consumption, 66 vs 55w. Plus the 7750 is typically shorter and will fit without modifications.
The factory graphics card, HD 7450 is 25w, this is 30w more worst case.
btw: I'm now running Catalyst 13.9, solid also. And seems to be more energy efficient, my 6670 avg work day temps dropped by 1-2 degrees (I have a tower.)

Since I'm the type to obsess over something a few weeks before buying it, I kept searching the forums and realized that the hd6670 worked with an m91p that had 280W. My m91p SFF only has 240W (so I've checked here: http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/lenovo-thinkcentre-m91p-7033/4507-3118_7-34531253.html) and am now skeptical of it really working :x
This might just be me being all paranoid, but I don't like going through the hassle of buying something I've built up for so long only to have to return it and wait a while to replace/upgrade the necessary components.

SO!!! I finally bought it!
I opted for the Sapphire HD7750 Low Profile Card
It shipped within 2 days and I've used it for a couple hours now. With a PSU of 240W, it's been running really well so far, not sure about the heat, but I don't hear or feel any difference by adding the card. No BSODs or crashes *crosses fingers* *knocks on wood* Great buy! I've seen someone on newegg say their 220W was enough too... So for future reference, 240W definitely works, 220W is pushing it (but seemed to still work for that one guy) Thanks BiggAl!
