Dell Optiplex Gx620 Video Card Upgrade

I have a dell optiplex gx620 desktop model. Windows xp pro (2002), pentium d cpu 3. 00ghz 2. 99 ghz and 2gb ram. I want to start playing moderately demanding games on it such as starcraft 2 and company of heroes. I've only been using the onboard chipset which has been surprisingly good but it's time for an upgrade. Unfortunately, the piece of crap power supply i have is only 250 watts (it might be 280 watts). Now, dell is a ***** because they their power supply's aren't the standard atx power supply :( but i heard that if you have a computer with pentium 4 processor or newer, the case will fit standard psu's just fine. Is this true? Feel free to suggest some video cards for me as well (but only if you want to :d). But seriously, i need help getting a new power supply and video card.

Dell Optiplex 755 Mt Processor Upgrade Issue

I have a dell optiplex 755 mt that was purchased as a barebones w/o a processor, memory or hd. I upgrade and added 250 gb hard drive 2gb memory and a e8400 dual core processor. When i start it up i get the dell screen and able to select f2 setup and get into the bios setting (have a04 bios) the processor shows all the correct info and the drives are also listed. When i try to boot up and install os i get "system does not support installed processor"

I also tried making a bootable cd with dos and adding the newest bios a11. Start up and selected f12 selected boot from cd and just goes to the same message processor not supported. I have seen other 755's listed in the dell outlet that show the e8400 cpu being used. Will this cpu work or will i have to get a different one?

Read that the e6850 was used in the 755. What is the difference in these two cpu's

Graphic Card For Dell Optiplex Gx620

When i bought my computer i wasn't thinking about a video card so it is very obsolete for what i want to do. I want to connect my computer to my plasma screen so that i can play hd videos and such. The problem now is that i only have a vga output so the quality isn't very good. I'm looking for a card that has an hdmi output that will make hd movies look good on my plasma. I don't do much gaming but some. I'm looking for a very cheap one, i'm hoping under $50. Also my computer is a dell optiplex gx620 if that helps.

Video Card For Dell Optiplex Gx520

Whats a good video card that works with a dell optiplex gx520 that doesn't have a pci-e slot?

Answer:- oh you have the mini gx520 i take it. Well as long as the standard pci slot is unused there are a few cards available on new egg and tiger direct:

http://bit. Ly/70d5jr
http://bit. Ly/apfemu

None of them are going to break any speed records being limited by the pci slot bus speed but will help for hd viewing and older game titles. P. S. Your looking for a low profile card as well if this is the mini.

Hp Pavilion Zv6000 Graphics Card Upgrade

Can i upgrade the graphics card on an hp pavilion zv6000? I've heard many people say that it's pretty much impossible to do so because the graphics card is integrated in the motherboard, but on this website http://www.Notebookreview.com/default.asp?Newsid=2341 it says the laptop has "new technology: i.e. First pci express video for amd notebook. " I've heard from others that it is possible to change the graphics card in a laptop if it has the pci express, but i would think that it would be more of an issue that a higher quality graphics card may not fit in the case of the laptop. If anyone was wondering, the graphics card i was planning on upgrading to is this one: http://bit. Ly/asdeea

Can anybody give me advice on how to upgrade the "graphics" memory of my dell dimension 2400 pc?

Graphics Card For Dell Dimension 4700

What is the best graphics card for a dell dimension 4700?

Answer:-
Here are the full specifications of your computer. http://reviews. Cnet.com/desktops/dell-dimension-4700-desktop/1707-3118_7-30981395.html

So you have one pci-ex16 slot. Don't worry about the version as all pci-ex16 2. 0 cards are backward compatible with pci-ex16 1. 0 and 1, 1. The only problem is 300 watts of power supply which limits your selection. For this power supply, the best cards you can insert are radeon hd 4670 and radeon hd 5570. This cards are pretty good to play games on your 1280x1024 monitor resolution. http://bit. Ly/cu6mrz

Hd 5570 even have low power consumption than hd 4670 along with same performance but cost little more. Still your psu can handle hd 4670. http://bit. Ly/bdidtz

Hd 4670 is a good option for your current system and monitor resolution.

Dell Studio Slim Graphics Card Cooling

Am a complete newbie to modding pcs and playing with the insides of them, other than changing a graphics card or adding more memory. But i have come across a problem and the only solution is to start altering the pc. I have a dell studio slim, and when i initially bought it, my idea was to not play computer games and use it only for work purposes. Yeah right! It ran beautifully with only visual studio and sql server running but now that am no longer doing any development at home, the pc has turned into a world of warcraft machine, and am slightly addicted. Now i bought a new graphics card xfx geforce 9500gt 1024mb ddr2 low profile/half height pci express 2. 0 video card, and its awesome. I can up all the settings to almost the top in wow, and if i don't play for more than a couple of hours at a time, everything is fine. However i started to see the screen flicker on and off, and at first i thought it was my monitor. I switched to an old monitor and things seemed to be fine. So i blamed the monitor. Dell replaced the monitor with no questions, and things settled down again for a while. Until a couple of weeks ago when i put in a weekend of gaming. The screen started flickering again. I went inside the machine and noticed that it was real hot, and the graphics card was noticeably warmer. So it could be the graphics card is not liking the slim case and (now i notice) very little airflow other than the fan on the processor and the fan on the power unit. So am in need of a bit of advice. I want to buy a new case - put all the components of the dell into it, and make sure there are plenty of fans (quiet ones please) and airflow to keep the graphics card cool. This would have the added benefit of maybe buying a higher end graphics card as the slim/half height issue would be removed and be able to add in some funky stuff to make the pc look awesome. Would anyone know what type of motherboard i have in my dell and are there cases out there that will fit it, as i have unfortunately heard its a hard thing to find (or it was as the posts all seem to be really old that i read).

Dell 8400 Video Card Upgrade

How do i find out what kind of updated graphic/video card i need for my dell 8400 pc?

Answer:-
According to the specifications from the service manual, the dimension 8400 has one pci-express x16 slot so you can install a pci-express video card into your computer. The only problem you are going to run into is the fact that the 8400 only has a 350 watt power supply, which will limit your video card options.

Dell Dimension 4600c Video Card Upgrade

I currently run a dell dimenson 4600c (the mini-tower). This means that the profile for my video card is smaller than average. I'm looking to upgrade from the stock card that came with it (geforce 440 mx) and was looking for suggestions. I'd prefer to spend under $100. So far, i've ran into the geforce 6200 agp as being a viable option. However, i have a few questions i need to get sorted out. First: the geforce 6200 seems to be listed as requiring 300+ watts of power supply for the computer as a system requirement. The 4600c only has 160 watts, is this going to be a problem?

Second: some of the reviews list the card as not coming with a low-profile faceplate. Does my system (4600c) require a different faceplate? If so, are they relatively easy to come by and replace?

Specifically, i'm looking at the following card - http://www.Newegg.com/product/product.asp?Item=n82e16814122222

And finally: is there a better performing card that can fit my 4600c that is slightly higher in price?

Dell Dimension 8200 Video Card & Ram Upgrade

I want to upgrade the ram and video card and will be very soon upgrading to 768mb ram. I bought a 256mb radeon 9600xt which arrived today and when i set it up and turned on the pc, the fan on the card would spin, pc would appear to boot up but no signal on the monitor and i don't think the pc was even loading windows. I've been told it's most likely a power issue, so maybe the card is hogging it and preventing the pc from booting. Can anyone recommend a good video card either 128mb or 256mb that will run on my 250w psu? I know i should upgrade the psu but apparently the dell ones are weird and others may not fit in the case. I also can't be bothered to be honest particularly as i only want to upgrade the vid card and ram so that i can play games up to about a year old pretty well (eg. Rollercoaster tycoon 3, rome: total war and such) and later on i will just buy a whole new more upgrade friendly pc. So basically i just want to upgrade the dell to keep me going until the end of the year or so. My specs:

Dell dimension 8200
P4 2. 25ghz
256mb ram
Geforce 2 mx 64mb
Win xp
250w psu

Dell Optiplex 280 Drivers

I am trying to install drivers of dell optiplex 280. I found them over dell's website under download section but here it's problem, those are available in application type. I surf web for this and finally came to know that this kind of file is designed for click once kind of application and installed .net framework, with thought that would help but it didn't. Is anybody know how to use this application type drivers? Or is it possible to download executable files of drivers from somewhere?

Dell Optiplex 260 Boot Up Issue

I have a dell optiplex 260. It has been functioning very well until this weekend, when i decided to give it a birthday. I fitted an ati radeon 9550 budget card, a new canon mp500 printer and reformatted and reloaded the main drive. Now for some weird reason in restarting or a cold boot the machine is freezing immediately after the splash screen for the bios. I have tried entering setup to see if there is some issue in the bios and it refuses to go there. Essentially on powering up the bios screen splashes up, the harddrive indicator flashes the floppy disk drive light flashes and then a cursor sits at the top of the screen for an indeterminate period of time, sometimes 3-4 minutes other times for a considerable 20 minutes. This is very frustrating as i don't know what the possible cause is and as such don't know where to look.
