GeForce 8800 GT and Dell Dimension 8400 Tags: Graphics Cards Dell Dimension Geforce PCI Express Graphics Last response: November 13, 2007 6:57 AM in Graphics & Displays Share metsownme November 13, 2007 2:37:57 AM Hi everyone, I have a Dell Dimension 8400 desktop that currently has a P4 3.4ghz, 1gb of ram, and a GeForce 6800 GTO. I believe my system supports PCI-E. Is the new GeForce 8800 GT PCI-E x16 interface card compatible with my system? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You might want to check and see if your power supply is able to handle the new video card. The Dell power supplies are not know for being powerful. kpo6969 November 13, 2007 5:03:40 AM affroman112 said:That video card will work with your motherboard.

According to who? metsownme, You have one pciex1 slot and a pciex16 slot Your psu is fine for the 8800GT, 350W @ 28amps. Your cpu might be an issue, if anything. My 305w Dell had 22amps but I upgraded for the 8800GT.
