Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

Dell 8400 No Boot, not even POST


It sounds like your bios were improperly flashed or went bad. The X300 SE message is your video card. So your video card works, the system mostly works, but the BIOS isn't starting up. You should contact Dell and tell them the situation.

No output to video monitor


I would suggest that you can use PowerColor ATi Radeon 9550 SE 128MB 64bit DDR AGP 8X Low Profile Video Card which works fine with Dell Dimension 4600c. Please write back to me or place a comment if it works for you or if you need any further assistance.

Good Luck.

Need graphic card upgrade for Dell Dimension 4500 w/ pixel shader


This is an older machine that has a 4x AGP port for graphics cards. The good news is that cards for this slot are cheap...usually in the 30-50 dollar range. The downside is that you wont get the greatest performance out of them. I would recommend going with a Geforce FX 5200.

Graphics upgrade needed


the computer has one PCI-Express slot (x16) which will take most of the latest video cards out there.

All you have to worry about if you buy a brand new card for it, in the 200-500 price range is does your computer have a good enough powersupply?

the computer comes with a 300W powersupply, which you might need to upgrade to w500 or more,

600W powersupply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171036

that one will go a long away, you should be able to keep the powersupply even if you decide to upgrade the cpu/memory and the motherboard, making it a brand new computer, the powersupply has enought juice to power it.

theres a 512MB and 1024MB cards. look around for cheaper deals if you want a smaller card with less memory.
