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:

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.

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.

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.

Dell 8400 Video Card Upgrade

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

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.

Video Card For Dell Dimension 4600

What video card should i get for my dell dimension 4600? When i switched from a laptop to a desktop pc, i got a dell dimension 4600 that my aunt gave us. After installing the sims 3 and spore, i realized that the video card on the computer wouldn't work for those games! The sims 1 & 2 work fine, but the sims 3 and spore do not work. I'd like to get a card less than $100 that gives me the best performance. Here are my specs:

Microsoft windows xp professional 2002 (service pack 3)
Intel pentium 4 cpu 2. 80ghz
3. 62 gb of ram
Agp 8x

I'm not worried about disk space because along with the c: drive, i have two additional external hard drives. I'm upgrading from a geforce4 mx 440 (with agp 8x).

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 -

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

Dell Inspiron 530 Video Card To Run Starcraft 2

Whats a decent, cheap video card for my inspiron 530 dell to run starcraft ii on? I'm running on a glorified. 4500 duo 2. 20 ghz processors, 2 gigabytes of ram, and my computer's stock video card, which is 101. 16% useless for gaming. I'll easily be able to afford some more ram, but the price for a new, decent video card is what's scaring me. I'd like to get the most bang for my buck, so any help would really be appreciated at this point! I have star-craft ii installed, and it's just sitting there.

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

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.

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

Dell Optiplex 980 Power Supply 500w

I've got an dell optiplex 980 that i would like to install a better video card into. I have a quad dvi ati card to install. The video card requires 2 6-pin pcix power connectors, so i need a larger power supply. No big deal right? Well the dell motherboard has some 24-pin power connector that is about 25% smaller than a standard atx power connector. Dell calls it a 'micro power connector'. Is this just some proprietary bs? Or is there some new standard for motherboard power? Anyone seen an adapter to get a regular atx ps in there?
