Question about ATI RADEON X1650 Graphic Card
I have a dell pentium 4 computer with one open PCI slot but I am having trouble finding a graphics card that will fit in the slot. looking at the slot from the back of the comp to the front it has a long socket next to a short one. I bought a GFORCE 5200 but on the card the short male side was backwards from the pci slot in my computer
It is easy to get the PCI & PCIE stuff mixed up. PCI slots are all white doesn't matter who makes the board. PCIE however is all together different from a PCI slot. The PCIE slot sits fauther away from the back of the computer & so does a AGP. PCIE is a very long card. A PCI is not. The short slot you saw is also a PCIE slots. Not for video but more likely for network card. Most people never use them. Most likely the long slot above the short slot is a PCIE. So you want a card that is like what I'm going to list in this link.
Please list the model number of your Dell & I can tell you exactly what video card you need.
please vote... I'll check back in an hour or two.
