  1. Hmmm, is there any way that you can find out the motherboard you have, that would help so much.
  2. maybe a 5450 or smaller.......... what is the power supply ?

    and you realize that your machine is very limited ? slow single core processor and almost no ram.
  3. Maybe if your PC is a branded one like Dell,Gateway,HP give us the model and we'll try to find more specs.
    Although the Celeron processor and 1 Gb of ram is going is going to limit the graphics card you could buy.
  4. ^+1 You will be bottlenecking most cards whatever way you go. Another question, do you intend on gaming, if so what resolution?
  5. Yes it's a Dell my mother board model is: 0CU409
    Manufacture: Dell

    And I have no idea how many watts my power supply is.

    @Hilo122 I plan on doing very light gaming to some medium gaming, nothing like BF3 or Halo 4.

    You have a Dell Vostro 200? A slim one or Mid tower ?
    Well according to some specs, your motherboard does have PCI-E 16x, and 2 slots of DDR2 memory but I really don't know if your Pc can handle a GPU, or how bad the bottleneck will be.

    I think the only gpu's your PC can accept is the HD radeon 4000 and 5000 series, but again I don't know exactly the performance of the Celeron 420 with those graphics cards.
  7. get a 6450. your pc should be able to handle it easily . also add in another gig of ram
    this will allow you to play some basic games at low settings
  8. It is a slim tower, and according the the specs what RAM can I buy that will be accepted.
  9. Your PC accepts DDR2 Memory, and supports a max of 4 GB. And for the video card, your should have no problem with the clearance, but you should check that.
  10. so what graphics card should I get any recommendations? So I should check to make sure its a DDR2 RAM.

    Well as Mohiy9206 said, maybe the Radeon HD 6450, seems like a good low-end graphics card, it's around 30 to 50 bucks, and adding that DDR2 Memory it should fit your budget.
  12. i wonder why i even reply to some of these threads........ ????
  13. Sounds great!, thanks for all your support as well as the rest :D I will try the 6450 and the RAM and let you guys know how its working. Really thanks for your help guys.
