  1. What is your Dell computer model number? I will try and see what motherboard you have thus what video card you need.

    There is PCI, PCI-e, and AGP slots. You more than likely have AGP or PCI-e.
  2. How do you know they don't fit if you haven't opened up the box?

    Why would you buy TWO brand new video cards without knowing what video card your motherboard supports?

    What processor do you have? That should pretty much tell you if it's agp or pci-e.
