Hello, I'm trying to upgrade this dell, it has the follow specs:
TWO DUAL CORE XEON 3.2GHZ PROCESSORS 5060 SO 4 CORES TOTAL
4 GB RAM
2 X 160GB HARD DRIVES SATA
VIDEO CARD IS DUAL DVI PORT NVIDIA FX550 128MB
Can this be upgraged to any nvidia card i want and can i put two of them in it? if so what do you recommend. And the computer has 8 ram ports, it has 4 sticks of 1gb currently to upgrade to 8mb do i just put 1gb in each of the ports. Can this computer even even be used as a gaming rig
yes you can depending on what motherbaurd you have and what bios. I would gfx is the main thing i would you have got enough ram for a 64bit os as it is but it is always good to have more ram. ps if overclocking defenetly take into consideration cooling it is very important.
graphics card is where the money goes, overclocking is free (more or less)..;)
Dell certain Dell XPS, AlienWare allow overclocking, I'm not certain for the DELL PRECISION...
I'm trying to research a possible dual card system, researching card possibilities for PhysX.
I'm just thinking a little out of the box, havin' fun toking one....
To bad it doesn't have a second pci-e x16 slot so I'm kinda looking into the other slot options.
It's a shame if you can't tho with all the power supply and all that room..
I also have a Dell Precision 690, and wanted to buy an eVGA Fermi 465 SLI-capable video card. Can anyone determine if it will work in my machine - I want the best DirectX11 video card I can get for this system for under $200.
I have a Precision 690 with 2 Xeon X5365 (@3Ghz) and 64GB RAM. At the moment I have my ATi FirePro V7200 switched for a AMD (Sapphire) Radeon HD 6570, but as soon as possible I want to buy a nVidia (eVGA) GTX 680.
