  1. doesnt matter one bit about memory type, ammount or pcie fit aslong as its pcie it will work aok, power requirements on the other hand do matter
  2. i955x supports PCI Express x16 Interface so a 9600 or 4670 will work, PSU is rated at 375watts, so you will need something with a bit more oomph and dedicated gpu power connections.
  3. thanks people
  4. i also have dell 380 tell me it work?which card you buy?

    The psu has a dedicated peg connector, a 30 amp 12v rating, and would laugh at the cards mentioned, no need to upgrade.
