I would like to upgrade graphics card of an old workstation, dell precision 670. This is a spare computer in my office and I would like to use it for some gaming and CUDA GPGPU programming.
Dual 3.00 Ghz Xeon processors on 800 Mhz FSB (with hyperthreading)
2GB 400 Mhz DDR SDRAM (might be DDR2, I don't know)
650W power supply (4x free SATA connectors and 2x free molex)
1 PCI express x16 slot (probably not PCIe 2.0)
and adequate space and air cooling in the case
I was thinking of getting either a nvidia GTX260 or GTX285 but I am not sure if these cards work with this PC. I know these cards are far too fast for this computer but this is just temporary. I will buy a new PC after a few months and use this card in it. I just want to know if I have enough power connections and if the PCIe 1.x version is compatible with the newest cards.
Thanks in advance
P.S. I know there is a similar thread but I couldn't find my answer in that thread.
