The onboard Intel graphics on the Dell Dimension E310 don't support 64-bit Windows 7 so it's just running in a low-res mode at the moment.
The PC has only 3 PCI slots and one PCIe 1x slots.
The power supply is only 230 watts.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a graphics card? I don't need to do any gaming on the machine but want to support 1920x1200 resolution. Obviously cheaper is better, and I'm willing to buy a used card on eBay if there's nothing still being sold that meets the requirements.
I know this is an older forum post and maybe you already found a workable solution... or even if your lucky ...stepped up to a newer PC.
If your still looking for a good solution maybe this can help.
I just recently did some special things to my E310 that literally took this thing to a new era of performance for what it is... probably about the best you can do on it.
I already wrote a book on all this that can be found on this post here ---> http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/386135-33-video-card-...
I am very very happy with the performance increase that I get running Win7 x64 on my Dell E310 and E510. I for one wouldn't go back or even to 32-bit Win7 for anything.
Even the fact you don't have to track down all the drivers from Dell with Win7 anymore. I didn't have the problem with the video drivers you were having as I had a Radeon HD 4670 PCIe x16 2.0 512MB GPU installed at the time of my Win7 install... and yes I as well as every other Dell E310 owner only have a PCIe x1 slot on my mobo. But if you already jumped to my other forum post you probably know why already.
Hope you get some use from the info. It all went pretty smoothly actually for me and I was just winging it.
