8800GT for Inspiron 530

I think there is so many Inspiron 530 owner right now. They are so desperately want to upgrade their video card to 8800GT or any better (as price dropped- $150). But they not sure if that going to fit the system or have sufficient cooling.

Which 8800GT is good to get for the system. I also heard ppl said the 8800GT is so hot that the system might have trouble on cooling.

I hope this thread also answer my question as well as those Inspiron 530 owner.

  1. The 9600 might be an option if heat is a problem.
  2. You can fit an 8800 GT in the I 530 ( Dell Small Business still offers the GT in the Vostro, which is the same machine), and for added cooling an 80 or 92 mm fan in the front will help.
