Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
I would like to install a PCline 5.1 PCI sound card into my GX260.
Would you please explain how to do it and also if this card is compatible.
If it's not compatible would you please tell me the best one at a reasonable price.
I would also like to up-date the hard drive from 20gigs to a 100 / 120 gigs which one should I go for?
Await your advice and many thanks.

OptiPlex GX260 can be Small Form-Factor, Small Desktop or Small Mini-Tower. Compatibility with PCline 5.1 PCI depends on the profile of the PCI Card and the Profile of your OptiPlex.
GX260 Small Form-Factor is compatible with Low-Profile PCI Cards only. GX260 Small Desktop and Small Mini-Tower are compatible with standard PCI Cards. (Small Mini-Tower however uses a PCI Cage).
Check OptiPlex GX260 Systems User's Guide - http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/ug/index.htm
From here you visualize the 3 form factors. Also there is info and steps to install PCI cards.
1. Generally, upmarket PCI cards are standard height. Some manufactures supply a metal piece to allow it to be used in Low-Profile or Standard Profile.
2. Driver software needs to be installed after the hardware is installed.
