I have Dell Dimension 9150 with ATI Radeon X300se 128MB with Hypermemory installed into PCI-E v1.0 x16. Decided to upgrade to PNY VCG95512GXEB GeForce 9500 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16. After reboot i got nothing but blank screen and my desktop reported possible video card failure using diagnostic lights on front panel. I can not check if card is faulty (don't have another computer to test it in), or it is just not comatible with my system. Users on other forums indicated that this card even works on Dell OptiPlex models.
Is the PCI Express Slot a 2.0 x16? that could be the issue not positive those cards will work without that specific slot Also check on the graphics card for a 6Pin plug usually they wont work well with out it hooked up to the power supply the plug should say PCI-Epress 1 or 2 good luck!

as this pc is skt 775 and has dual core support then it is quite likely that the e5200 will work but may need a bios update to support this cpu...
just goto dells site and choose the pc u have and select drivers then download the lastest bios, transfer it to the dell pc run it as its a self extractor system will reboot perform the update then bobs ya uncle.......pop in new cpu and hey presto cheapo ugrado
#and as for the graphics card you will need to accertain which pcie version u have as most dell pc's only have pcie v1 so wont be able to handle the newer gpu's on the market.......
