New graphics card

I am looking to get a new "PNY Verto GeForce 6200 AGP - graphics adapter - GF 6200 - 256 MB" my current computer is a "Dell Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz Model 2, Stepping 7 with a 1.00 GB of RAM " I know that I will need to upgrade my PSU but I was wondering if this upgraded graphics card would work with my older computer system, my current card is a "32MB ATI Rage 128 Ultra"? Please let me know if the new graphics card I am getting will comply with my current system. Thanks

Hi, I have an EVGA GeForce 6200 AGP, 256MB DDR2

This is a common problem, you need to clear the CMOS which will also reset the BIOS settings. Here's a few ways you can do that:

The fan on my PNYvertoGeForce5200 ultra video card does not work?

Yes you can get a new fan if you can or you might look for any system that does not work anymore and remove the fan if it fits yours.

256 MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for Inspiron 9400/E1705 Card Failu

Both solutions are wrong. The Dell Inspiron 9400/1705 is a laptop. If you buy a Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for this laptop, you need to buy a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 motherboard for a discrete video card. The integrated video is a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The integrated video has the video chipset on the motherboard and the discrete video (GeForce Go 7800) has the video chipset on the video card.

Replacing a Graphics card: Presently a GeForce 420 (64mb) upgrading to GeFroce 6200 (256mb). System is a Dell Dimesion 8200 w/Windows XP at 2GB with 100+ GB free. Will the card work? Tim

If the type of card is the same,and will fit into the slot,such as AGP or PCI or PCIe, then it wil work after you install the new video card drier for your operating system of windows.

Graphics card update

Step one is go to Dell and check the motherboard specifications.
Step two is go to and (among the zillion of cards) select the one you can afford (select based on AGP rate...this sites takes a lot of the search out of the process).
Step three (and I forget where it is but you can google for it) there is a site (actually a couple) where you input your equipment, cpu, motherboard, etc.....and it calculates the power supply required.

As for good cards...the less expensive generic cards I have had no problems with...most use the same chip sets....doing a comparison of that can save more than just a couple bucks if looking for a real high end gamers video card. One thing I would suggest though is to balance the cpu and memory...particularly since DDR is cheap. Here are a couple of examples.
An old p3 850 htz machine with 256 mb memory is balanced. But that amount of memory on an Xp2800 machine is too little...256 and 128 are needed for balanced performance....meaning neither the cpu is waiting nor the memory is being underutilized (i.e. you get only a "nits" worth of improvement by going to two 512 although one 512 will give you a bit of a boost....say 4-6% improvement in response time. The sellers of PC...particularly bundled....almost always don't put enough memory and always put too much bloatware on the machines....getting rid of the latter (and particularly anything that is active in memory) can give you a boost you may not believe. Ccleaner (free) to fix the registry and Spybot to keep malware from being active plus Hijackthis will allow you to keep your machine at might want that since you (am guessing) are into either games or some real sophisticated editing.

Hope this last thought....these high end video cards do give you some super quick response but....very few games require that (of the total number of games out there) and with bus, cpu and memory speed improvements you might just be better off paying the same amount of money for a mobo bundle...(in fact I think you would be).....but that is your research mine.

Is my Motherboard compatible?

Probably not. There is not quite enough information in your post to really help, but from what I'm finding on the GeForce 6800 GT, it is only available in PCI-Express and AGP 8x (AGP3.0) Versions. Your motherboard only supports AGP 1x, 2x and 4x (AGP2.0) cards.

Installing GeForce 5200 on Dell Dimension 2400

I suggest that better check that graphic card in another machine and make sure it is working.

Also find out the data transfer speed of your mother board through the AGP slot is compatible with your graphic card. (e.g. 4X, 8X, etc.)

If you are sure that your system really has an 8X AGP port (A choclate colored slot) then you could deffinitely install the card and work with it.

With the information I received the Dell Dimension 2400 deos not features an AGP 8X port, in that case it is not possible to install the card.

Then you should buy a new motherboard with AGP 8X Port to be able to install the Ge force FX 5200.
