Question about Dell OptiPlex GX110 PC Desktop
I want to upgrade to a better graphics accelerator card on my Dell optiplex GX110 but i don't know how to turn off the factory one that is intergrated into the motherboard.
How do i do that?
And how do i get the motherboard to recognize the new one?
Not every computer is the same, but many times you can disable your integrated graphics by going into the BIOS setup and disabling the onboard graphics. This is not necessary, even if you plan to upgrade.
when i read the system specs it says it only has PCI expansion slots. I regret to inform you your computer is very limited in its ability to expand, basically you will not be able to upgrade to render graphics for more 3d applications especially newer games. you need at least one AGP port or PCI Express. However if you absolutely want the best available for PCI you can purchase a RADEON 9000 PCI edition. It can handle most older 3d games or apps and it will work on your computer. All you have to do is plug it in to any PCI slot and install the software that come with the device, and voila.
For newer 3d apps and games you will have to purchase a new system.
