How to upgrade my Dell XPS 420? Tags: Graphics Cards Dell Studio Xps Graphics Product Last response: December 19, 2009 4:20 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Platoon_Michael November 14, 2009 12:59:13 PM Hello, I would like to upgrade my graphics card for the Dell XPS 420 and have no idea what to get. And just seem to become more confused everyday. Specs are: Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 Processor:Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40Ghz 2.39Ghz Memory:4.00GB System Type 32-bit Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO And my Monitor is a Dell 2407WFP(Digital) LCD I figure I have maybe at the most $300 to spend. The game I like the most to play so far is Company of heros and I want to be able to play that at the highest settings. Thank-You very much in advance for any time and help you can provide. david More about : upgrade dell xps 420 delluser1 a b U Graphics card November 14, 2009 1:11:20 PM There's no need to spend $300 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card November 15, 2009 2:00:38 AM Yes, nice choice, delluser1...

The machine comes with either a 375 watt (1x6 pin) or 425 watt (2x6 pin) psu, either of which can handle a 5770, it's power use is lower than the cards that were originally offered in the 420. wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card November 15, 2009 7:08:15 AM alright, u heard him, michael... Get your 5770 now... Platoon_Michael November 15, 2009 9:49:25 AM I looked at it and hopefully santa will provide me with it this year. Thank-You for the help and I'll open the case and check on the psu before purchasing. ginzero December 19, 2009 4:20:25 AM I went with this.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
