Dell Dimension 2350 Graphics Card

  JedtheNed 09:39 12 Feb 2011

My Dimension is some 8 years old. I recently got a new LCD monitor for it. It seems to work OK but the software supplied tells me that I am not getting the optimum resolution. Seems to be the graphic card not being up to the job. Would the purchase of an external graphics card improve things? If it would any suggested product brand? JedtheNed

It has 3x PCI slots (click here), so you could get a PCI graphics card, which would be the best & cheapest option.

A few examples click here{agp}%2bc{420}%2b&ob=4 / click here / click here. Any 6200 card & above will be fine, so you'll want to avoid the FX5200 in eBuyer's link.

What monitor is it exactly - make & model please? G

Sorry, the 2nd link again click here.

The 6200 would be the best option, as any other may need a PSU upgrade. G
