Question about Dell Precision Workstation 490 - MT - 32bit Dual Core Intel Xeon Processor 5120 1.... PC Desktop

1 Answer

Ati or nvidea? which is more reliable and well built for dell

Ati or nvidia? I have always had ati products, but I noticed that dell is often shipped with nvidia cards,is there a reason I should want to get an nvidia instead of ati for our dell precision 490? I like the ati fireGL because we're doing a DAW and we don't want a fan on the graphics card (fireGL has a radiator instead of a fan so its great for audio workstations). I don't know if nvidia has a graphics card without a fan like the ATI fireGL...on a sidenote, our ATI fireGL is defective, so I"d have to buy another one...do many people report problems with the ATI fireGL?? we don't care about gaming firepower, for audio workstation, we just want reliable and lots of screen real estate.

To me it is probably personal preference. I have always like Nvidia, and I have had a couple of systems that had ATI. Nvidia to me seems more stable and more reliable. You might search some sites for benchmark comparisons

ECS H61H2-M12 PCIe socket not working


I don't know, what O/S operates your system. But, If you want to get the NVidea to be functioned well, you have to install the NVidea driver software, and it is an extra work. Haven't you got a NVidea driver software disk along with this NVidea card? Should have. Insert it into CD ROM, and follow the illustrations. It will take some time, in most cases, more than 20 minutes, to finish.

My geforce 8200 can not play fifa 11


Your graphics card is below the game minimum requirements (see link below) I would guess that this was a Dell, HP or other, and yours is basically a stripped down card with missing features, less memory etc. (which is why FIFA doesn't work) Your game also requires shader model 3.0, which will be present in all retail video cards on the list below.

From my information source site:
" Please note that NVIDIA GeForce 7300,8100,8200,8300 and 9300, ATI Radeon HD3200, HD4350, and Intel / S3 integrated chipsets are below minimum system requirement ."
http://gamesystemrequirements.com/games.php?id=956

If this is a desktop system, you can upgrade your video card to one of the following chipsets (video card series)
"Recommended Chipsets: NVIDIA GeForce® 6xxx series (6800 or greater) NVIDIA GeForce® 7xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® 8xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® 9xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 2xx series ATI Radeon X1600 (X1600 or greater) ATI Radeon X1800 ATI Radeon X1900 ATI Radeon X1950 ATI Radeon HD 2xxx series ATI Radeon HD 3xxx series ATI Radeon HD 4xxx series.
If you need help choosing a new video card, please repost your question and include the make (Dell, HP, etc. or white box) and model #. If this is a DIY project then please include as much information as possible about the mainboard, what version of windows, power supply, etc..

Once you know what you need I would check out newegg.com for video cards. They will have what you need at the best prices...

Feel free to contact me directly if you would like continued help with this.

Any one tell me whose best card for my pc ATI radeon sapphire x1550 or NVIDIA Gforce 7200GS


Both are good. It all comes down to personal preference. Some people like ATI cards and some prefer Nvidea. Research both and then decide which card suits your personal preferences while doing the job you wish it to do. Hope this helps.

Nvidia geo force failure


The best place to purchase the Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 laptop is eBay. If available on eBay, the price could range from $230-$300 and search for "Dell 9400 video" or the card name. Some eBay sellers will give you a $50 or so credit, if you purchase a card from them. The video card can be downgraded (ATI Mobility Radeon® X1400 HyperMemory)
or upgraded (NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS or GTX). Also, you can try parts-people.com, but they're typically more expensive and reliable.

Yes, the video card can be repaired in most cases. Search eBay for Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 repairs.
