Hi Folks
Does anyone have any ideas whether a Dell Dimension 2400 series would support DirectX9.0c and Soundblaster 16 ?
I want to set up a Video Capture Device but it says these are system requirements ?

The Dell Dimension 2400 uses an onboard graphics chip, the Intel 845G/GL - Intel says that this is DirectX 9 compatible.

I would however advise downloading the latest drivers from Dell. I think the latest ones are dated 18/1/05. (my missus has the same computer)

The onboard sound should certainly be soundblaster compatible.

Hope this helps.
