    Was your previous card a standalone AGP or built into the motherboard?

If the original configuration was an integrated graphics setup, then the BIOS needs to be changed to AGP or PCI slot.

Yes, it is compatible, just that you must first uninstall the previous video driver, then configure the BIOS to route the video signal to the PCI and not the AGP and only then install the new card. And in the end it will behave worse than the previous AGP card you got because the PCI interface is way slower than the AGP.
Just buy a good AGP card, PCI cards are made for office pc's in which the onboard one is totally obsolete.

Problem using graphics card


You don't have to order a 'dell' brand power supply, just make sure you replace it with one more powerful with the same connection types... but before you do that, try changing the bios setting from 'auto' and specify the first video device to be the PCI-e, or AGP... depending on the type of card that you're putting in there.

Problem installation video card


Hello Virna, i have that exact graphics card and dell GX270 desktop here at home, tho it has been awhile since i removed the Nvidia PCI card for a more favorable AGP card. From what i remember, first check your BIOS (hit F2 on startup) and select integrated devices, scroll down and make sure your default video output is either PCI (if available) or AUTO) exit saving changes. If that yields no result. Plug in a second monitor to your old integrated video output, if you can view windows after bootup from there, then you can install the proper Nvidia display driver for windows Xp (available here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html ). After installing, right click on the desktop, select properties, display settings tab, and make sure the Geforce card is the main monitor and the desktop monitor. Click apply, unplug the integrated VGA output, and restart. Hope this helps.

Ati radeon 9550 agp with pinnacle pctv hd problem please help


Try to put it on another pci slot. if you are using the one right under the agp, then that is your culprit.  the agp and the top pci slot share video resources.  just put it on another pci slot, if you have to swap another non-video related card to the one just beneath the agp slot.  Hope this helps.

Need new card, system requirements confusing


Radeon X800 XL is a PCI-E (PCI-Express) card, you can replace it with any current ATI or nVidia video card that uses the PCI-E slot. Since you already have a PCI-E card before, I would bet you already meet most of the system requirements.

there is no such thing as a PCI-E to AGP converter, they are 2 completely different technology. Anyways a motherboard with a PCI-E port is really not that expensive, you can find one for about $100.00, just make sure you choose the right socket for your processor.

You should have no problem upgrading with this card.  You can find the drivers for it here:  http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=406

However, you will find it difficult to get support on this old card.  I suggest investing in a new one.  Just keep in mind AGP or PCI.  See the picture below for a visual representation of the difference.  If you have an AGP port (should be brown) on your motherboard, you really should use it, you will notice a marked difference in video response times vs. PCI.  PCIe/PCIEx/PCI Express is only going to be found on newer computers, however, the visual representation here shows the difference between PCI and AGP.  Note how the connections are stacked on the AGP card.
