  5. i was thinking to upgrade to ATI Radeon(TM) series 4850 but not sure if my Dell Dimension DIME521 can handle it...
  6. Well, anything worth upgrading to will require a new PSU to be able to handle Mass Effect 2 and BFBC2.

    What is your budget??

  9. Make sure your mobo has a PCI-E slot
  10. Also, check the size will fit!!

    I had a Dell Dimension and I had to modify the case & card slightly to get a dual card to fit because of size and where my SATA ports were. A single slot card works best.
  11. it has ONE PCI-E slot
  12. Or pick up a new case Antec 300 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129066

    Then your on your way to replacing the mobo CPU ram HDD latter down the road and will have a nice system :)
