Graphics card interface query

  FGP 19:54 04 Aug 2005

I've just bought a new dell 5100. i'm want to buy a graphics card upgrade for it, but i don't know what card I can get. it comes with 2 PCI slots. can I put PCI-E graphics cards in this slot or not? if not, am I sh*t out of luck and have to pick different type of card or can I change things at all?

I would hope you have pci-E slot since I don't know if you can get standard pci cards any more.

click here is this your system?

If so it looks as if you are in luck & it does have a PCI-Express slot.

thanks!! thats the one! do you know any good cards to buy for around £130-£150?

Have you already taken delivery of the system?

The cheapest option is to add the card as an extra when buying your computer.

Otherwise I usually read the customer reviews at click here

just thought you'd get given a standard card, rather than a pretty good one. so didn't bother. oh well. thanks for clearing up the interface issue! big help. cheers

Oh! and despite the bad comments that ebuyer seem to get, I have never had any problem with returning the occasional faulty item & getting a replacement or refund from them.
