Hello. I want a very good answer for this. I am using a Dell Precision Workstation 360 which is only limited to AGP and PCI slots. Does anyone know a good -NVidia- Graphics Card which I can buy? Thank you.
Another question would be, does a PCI-E USB/External Slot exist?
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Somewhere in December.
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, everything else.
CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: NVidia Quadro FX 1000. PSU would be Dell P360's default PSU.
OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: CPU - Intel Pentium 4 @ 3 GHz, compatible with HT. RAM - 2 GB at 3 GHz.
They havent made agp cards for years and pci cards are slower than what you have know. You cant upgrade to pci-e. Sli and crossfire require pci-e and compatible chipsets. Honestly given the ancientness of the system I would waste money trying to upgrade and save that money for a new system. A current low end $300 walmart special desktop would run circles around your current system in terms if cup power.
Getting an upgraded video card for your system now would be a waste, the CPU and other components will not be able to play any newer games. Find a used dual-core PC tower with about a 250+ watt power supply, Core 2 Duo at about 2.8+ gig, then get a newer PCIe card for that. Don't know what used PC prices are, but in the US you can get a dual core system for about $100-150 if you look around.
