Nvidia GeForce 6200 512MB AGP on Dell OptiPlex GX270

So I'm planning to upgrade EVGA Nvidia GeForce 6200 512MB for my Dell Optiplex GX270 (Small Desktop Form).

Here are the specs for Dell Optiplex GX270: http://www.dell.com/downloads/us/products/optix/gx270_spec.pdf

Specs for the Graphic Card: http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1368323&CatId=2234

I'm also upgrading my RAM from 1GB to 4GB (Maximum allowed).
Please tell me if it will work. I ordered it already!!!
Thanks!

  1. Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums!

    The Graphics card specs call for a minimum 300 watts PSU.

    I have installed this card in a Dell Optiplex GX 620 and it works fine. The GX 620 has a 305 watts PSU. I also upgraded the RAM to 4 GBs, but that hardly takes up any power.

    Here are the specs: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx270/en/ug/specs.htm
    Make sure the RAM is DDR 333 or 400 MHz modules

    Since you have already ordered the graphics card, try it.

    Not sure how you could have that exact card in your Opti 620, since they're PCI-e. You might have a PCI-e based 6200 card. In any case, that card won't require anywhere near a 300w PSU. It'll work fine with the stock PSU. Dell offered better cards than that on systems with 305w PSUs.

    The card I installed is: Part Number: 512-P3-1300-LR - Part Desc: e-GeForce 8400 GS - This card is 512 MB, and the specs call for a minimum 300 watts PSU. Installed in an Optiplex GX 620, PCIe-16x slot.

    Ok. The OP has an AGP card, and you said "i have this exact same card in my 620". Confused?

    What I meant was 512 MB. My error.
