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/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.

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.

Install The Graphic Drivers Without Graphic Card Installed

I'm buying a custom pc from a company and i don't like their list of graphic cards that you have to choose from. In spite of this i am ordering a graphic card separate from the company who is building my pc. As a result the pc will come with no graphics card (not even an onboard). My question is how will i be able to install the drivers if theres no current graphics card already on the pc. Please let me know asap.

Nvidia Graphic Card Disappearing

I have an nvidia geforce 8800gt graphics card on my gateway fx7020. It has worked perfectly for about two years up until recently. My card started acting up after playing a video game that required fairly low specs to play. It got progressively worse over the coarse of two days, to where my computer crashed simply for being on for a few minutes. I reinstalled windows thinking that it might solve the issue. However the card still acts up and windows can't even detect that i have a graphics card. I get a code 43 error when i try to change some display settings. It said it couldn't load nvidia software because it couldn't be detected, or something to that extent. While dusting out my computer i noticed that my graphic card was extremely heated up. It was hot to the point of it being almost unbearable to touch. I also noticed that if i place my computer on the carpet instead of on a wooden surface which is suspended in air by poles, my computer lasts longer before it crashes. I can manage to temporarily fix the issue by unplugging my computer completely for a few minutes. After which is starts up properly with my graphic card running perfectly as nothing had ever happened. It tends to crash again after about half an hour. What's going on?

Which Graphic Card Is Better Nvidia Or Ati?

I will be playing world of warcraft and aion. The graphics cards i'm talking about are the ati radeon hd 5870 or the ge force 470. This is what i have read so far. The ati card uses 188wats max when under full load while the nvidia one will use the full 550watts needed. Knowing this means the nvidia will get hotter than the ati card but will it perform better? I'm using a 750 watt power supply. I know both have a little over 1gig of memory. Let me also share with u a quote i read somewhere. This is a quote i read off a website, " although the ati radeon hd5870 has 1600 stream processors, they are 5 dimensional. Whereas nvidia's cards are one dimensional. 480 stream processors on the gtx 295 is equal to ati's 2400 stream processors. The hd5870's 1600 stream processors are equal to 320 of nvidia's. "

I don't know if it's true or not but please provide for me the reasons why one is better than the other or why i should go with one and not the other. I'm a first time computer builder and want to do this the best way i can. I don't know if the new fermi technology will outdo the eyefinity and ati card but please leave your feedback.

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.
