Why would you need to upgrade the internal one i have can handle HD content at 1080P. All I Needed to do is put a few little 40 mm fans on that black heat sink and put a heat sink on the chip that says intel and put a fan on it. But mine has 2 GB of ram.

You can go to the Dell website and check product support. Why do you need an upgrade?

Sounds like you may have multiple problems. Suggest trying to eliminate possible causes by removing components. Remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged. Remove the components one at a time and see if the LED's change.

You don't need a card. Google "video capture" and look at the shopping results. You will see usb adapters as cheap as 20 dollars. You can use windows movie maker to save the video.

What kind of plasma? If the plasma tv has a VGA input you can buy this:

If it has DVI or S-Video, the GX520 will need a video card that supports those technologies.

You are limited in the choices for video card The Optiplex GX270 only has a 160W power supply Not only that but because of the slim case, you're most likely limited to low profile video cards. That means the choices will be extremely limited & not very good. Even after the upgrade, you'll most likely have to stick with older games. follow this link to buy low profile video cards http://www.directron.com/lowprofile.html

Unable to upgrade onboard graphics on dell gx520


Try disabling your onboard graphics in the BIOS. Some BIOS allow this. If you have a sound card, disable the onboard sound too. Count your beeps. they contain a code. Go online and "Google" bios codes. This should give you a starting point to diagnose the problem.

Optiplex 520 pci video cards Dual monitors & Vista


There is a work-around for Vista. Look here.

A little bit down you can read:
"A user could force the installation of a XPDM driver for each of these devices, and therefore get heterogeneous multi-adapter multi-monitor to work as in Windows XP."

If you can go that way depends mainly on the manufacturer of the video card driver.

If you are going to sell all your nice 22" monitors - let me know...;-)

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

I want to get a new video card But..


For Motherboard interface:

mini tower version of the Optiplex GX520 appears to have one PCI Express Slot. other cases don't appear to have anything.

Check the photos on the link below to match up your form factor

http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/optix_gx520?c=us&cs=28&l=en&s=dfb


For monitor, make sure you have a DVi port or something like that & that your card has a matching port or that you can get an acceptable adapter. If monitor not DV capable, HD video card will not help you much.
