Hi
Your Dell will accept the card,but how well it works depends on what you want to do with it.Hardcore gaming won't work out.Video rendering will take forever also.There's a max. of 2 GB RAM,and if there is support for a CPU in excess of 2.8MHz it won't be very much better.
But if you want it for business apps.,or general use and just want 2 monitors it would be fine.
I hope that answers your question,post back if there's anything else.And would you rate my post please?
Thanks
Bob

You are right,you can not make that work.You need either dvi or vga,on both monitors.You can not mix them,sorry.Check for an empty pci or pcie slot and add another video card.

I have a dell dimension 4600. im looking to upgrade my graphics card but i dont know witch i should get vga pci or pci-e i cant really tell what my motherboard supports i think it might be vga but i just...


According to Dell's website, the 4600 uses an AGP port, it's older than pci-e but newer than pci. An 8X AGP video card could be cheap like under $40 cheap.

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 w/ an 0ry007 motherboard. I would like to use 2 monitors. Will it support dual monitors through the one port if I use a Dual DVI adapter?


This system uses a PCI-E slot for its video (graphics) card. This is the perfect platform to accept a high end card that has dual DVI outputs, which allows multiple displays. You should change out the card that came with the machine, most PCI-e cards these days have the dual outputs and cost less than a hundred bucks. The dual output is a better way to go instead of an adapter.

Can i get star trek online to run on my dimension 4600, i upgraded grapics card and am now using geforce 6200. is there a better card that will work with the power supply? or do i need 2 start rebuilding...


Well personally, IF the best video card that is in the system, now, & you can afford and want to, then I would build up a new system.. New Motherboard, for a Quad Core, with Dual Video PCI-e slots, and get a pair of Video cards for a great system. At least 4GB RAM & a 7200RPM 8MB cache Drive. you'll wonder how you did without it.

Extended Desktop on Dell Dimensions 4600


yes your right..leave it set to AUTO BUT ONLY USE THE ATI CHIP SET VIDEO CARDS.


Dell Dimension 4600 We saw great image quality from the 17-inch E171FP analog LCD monitor that accompanied our review system. Text looked sharp and evenly focused at all sizes, while colors appeared lifelike, with evenly saturated tones in our photo test screen, in a DVD movie, and during a session of Return to Castle Wolfenstein. As part of a new case design for Dell's midrange Dimension line, the 4600 has eight USB 2.0 ports, more than on most value (and some power) systems: six on the back and two up front. An audio port for connecting headphones sits next to the front USB ports.
The compact 4600 does not have the tool-less accessibility of its predecessor, the Dimension 4500, although opening the case is easy: Just depress a thick L-shaped lever and lift off the side panel. You'll need a screwdriver to add a PCI card or a hard drive; unlike the 4500 series, which secured expansion cards and drives with innovative quick-release mechanisms, the 4600 series uses screws. Our test configuration had only one available drive bay (a vertically mounted internal bay), and it's a struggle to use it. You must remove four screws (two on the bottom of the case and two inside) and take out the bay holding the existing hard drive along with the empty bay that's crammed up against the front of the case. The two open PCI slots are reasonably easy to access, but to reach the two open memory sockets, you must push aside a snarl of data and power cables.
The Dimension 4600 we tested came with a 2.8-GHz Pentium 4 processor and 512MB of DDR400 memory. It earned a PC WorldBench 4 score of 122, about average for similarly configured systems. The ATI Radeon 9000 Pro graphics card is not a top-of-the-line board, but it yielded solid frame rates in our gaming tests. And it's perfectly fine for playing games at moderate resolution, especially considering that the bundled LCD monitor won't display anything higher than 1280-by-1024 resolution. It has a combination DVI/analog-out port (you use an adapter to hook up an analog monitor), plus S-Video-out and composite-out ports to output video to a TV.


Please leave comment and feeb back.
Thanks

Dell 4600 no monitor signal


Hey Tony,
If you haven't already: pull all pci cards:
If you pull the ram, and you get no beeps at post, it's likely the main board. Does the pc beep at all? with or without ram? If not, likely the main board. Sorry. Hope this helps...

I have a Dell Dimension 4600, will a PCI Express sound card work in place of the original Sound Blaster 5.1 sound card


Well, the short answer to your question is "No, it won't work". The Dell Dimension 4600 does not have any PCI Express slots in it, therefore you can't install it, and therefore it won't work. But, if you installed a PCI sound card, it would work. The BIOS would recognize the add-on sound card, disable the onboard sound, and your sound will start going through the expansion card instead. Hope this helps.

I want to put 4 monitors on my dell 4600


You need a video card capable of supporting four monitors. This is usually done with an SLI setup where the motherboard supports multiple video cards and each card supports two monitors instead of four, but the 4600 does not support SLI. Check out this link for a list of cards and methods that will work.
