Upgrading GC in Dimension 9200 Tags: Graphics Cards Dimension Windows Vista Graphics Last response: May 24, 2011 3:56 PM in Graphics & Displays Share hokers May 23, 2011 3:36:13 PM Hello, I have a Dell Dimension 9200 with the following spec: Q6600 4GB RAM 2x320Gb HDD Vista Home Premium (32-bit) Nvidia 8800GTX (768MB) I'm pretty sure the graphics card has died, can anyone recommend a decent card to get me a couple more years out of the PC, ideally without upgrading the PSU (original 375W)? I was looking at the Geforce GTX 460, about £120 and uses slightly less power (150 vs 155 Watts according to wikipedia) than the existing card. This should give me a decent performance boost, but is this pushing it too far? Would it be wiser to go for something more lower power, or go all out and upgrade the PSU as well? I'm a bit put off by an article saying you have to take off the heat sink assembly to change PSU in these machines, sounds like a lot of hassle. Cheers in advance.

Main use is gaming, FPS mostly, though I haven't had a problem, performance-wise with the 8800GTX Was looking at this card specifically: GTX 460 SE at amazon UK Budget is £100-150 GBP. hokers May 24, 2011 3:56:18 PM Can anyone recommend a decent PSU instead?
