Help me upgrade this computer. Tags: Graphics Cards Computer Dell Graphics Last response: August 25, 2006 2:21 AM in Graphics & Displays Share hungry August 24, 2006 11:51:32 PM I was thinking of getting a new gfx card, or anyting else worth upgrading for my crappy dell. I have about $200 CAD to spend. Here are my specs: Dell Dimension 8250 2.8 ghz p4 533 fsb 1gb pc 1066 RDRAM (thinking of adding more, but I cant find any) 9700tx 128mb AGP 250w power supply (I assume that may cause problems) More about : upgrade computer dmantech August 25, 2006 12:36:34 AM I would get the Saphire X800GTO for $127.00 at Newegg since you have AGP. kaotao August 25, 2006 12:48:53 AM I'd recomend something like an X800GTO, X800XL, a 7600GS, or a 7600GT. The 7600GT is supposed to be available some time this month for AGP. You're going to have to upgrade to at least a 400w PSU.

NCIX is the Newegg of canada. NCIX - Netlink Computers Highly reccomended. Edit: I'd be pretty hesistant about buying any hardware off ebay unless it was like an evga card that still carried the manufacturers lifetime warranty. You want to be able to RMA it if something goes wrong. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumATI HD 5500 Upgrade time. Please help me choose? ForumSub $350 computer upgrade ?
