Not sure what your question about this is, but the Optiplex Gx280 has a PCI Express x16 slot which I suppose would be about half the size of an AGP slot. If you're trying to replace the videocard you'll have to put in a PCI Express x16 compatible card.

    It may be smaller then standard if it's the small form factor model you have.

    The nice thing about dell is that if you are buying from there website you can look up compatible parts for your model or by your service tag.

    You can also take that info on the video card you want and shop around for that specific model elsewhere.

It sounds like you may have forgotten to turn off the on-board video. If you insert a graphics card when you have been using the on-board graphics before, you need to go into setup ( on Dell it usually involves tapping the F2 button before Windows loads) and turn off the onboard graphics or windows may try to load 2 video drivers and fail

Dell Optiplex GX280 Video Card Install Problem


You hit that one right on the dot.  ATI website showed the specs for that graphics card you installed as needing a 300 Watt power supply.  Good news though... I researched newegg.com and I believe I found your 300W power supply.  There are 4 different Optiplex gx280 designs with 4 completely different power supplies.  Since you bought the low-profile video card, I believe you have the slim computer case and this power supply should work for you...

Upgrading graphics card onto gx280 motherboard


You need to find a "PCI Express" video card. Your Motherboard does not have an AGP slot. There are lots of them to choose from. Better to pay more now and get more memory on the video card than to regret the purchase and buy another one. IMHO

Optiplex GX280 Low Profile Graphics Failure


According to the Dell website your board has a 16X PCI express graphics slot. If so, you can ask for any PCI express graphics card at your retailer. The memory size and performance of the card will depend on your budget.
Hope you find this info helpful.

Pci-e question


Hi

I am afraid Dell OptiPlex GX260 has no support for PCI-e.

You can however install a half-length AGP (66MHz) graphics card.
