Unfortunately a nvidia 9500gt 1gb vga card won't work on this system because it is a pcie card a dell dimension 2400 is a pci bus only so one card i can recommend is bfg tech geforce 6200 oc pci version you will get some minor problems with this card using create a sim and you have to configure the graphics to medium for it to run at any decent speed

    also disable your built in video adapter and make sure you have 1 gb of ram at least if you're using xp you can only upgrade to 2 gb of ram also this is the max ram this system will handle

Will this graphics card work with my Dell Dimension 2400? http://www.amazon.com/nVIDIA-GeFORCE-FX5500-256MB-Graphics/dp/B0042A9M5S/ref=pd_cp_e_3


Yes, that should work fine. That card uses the PCI interface, which there are 3 slots for on the Dell Dimension 2400.

I have a dell dimension 2400 it has no video i tried to put a pci video card in and still did not work but pci video card is good


You probably need a driver for the video card. There should be a driver CD included in the box with the video card. Be sure to read the instructions on how to install the card.

MY VIDEO AND AUDIO WILL NOT PLAY RIGHT , WHEN I CLICK ON A VIDEO THE SOUND STOPS AND STARTS AND SO DOES THE AUDIO


Sounds like a bus thruput problem. you probably have too much happening on your computer and/or not enough ram and cpu resources. You can beef up your video card by replacing the one thats in it already with a high end card, and add extra ram to your machine. Most pentium 4 machines at 1.4ghz or higher can play videos on windows XP while running 1 gig of ram on an nvidia 7500 or higher gpu with 128 dedicated gpu ram on-card. Basically, your computer is choking on the data and it cannot produce it fast enough to play smoothly. you need to upgrade your pc to gain additional cpu resources. Best option is speak with a pc shop to see about upgrades.

Where can I put a new graphics card in my computer???


First I want to mention that the Dimension 2400 is not really a pc that's made for playing games. There is no AGP or PCI-express slot on the motherboard, so you'll have to use the (slower) PCI slot.
How to put your card in your computer is explained on this page of the Dell support website.
If you need help with finding a card, just ask me.

Good Luck
