Having trouble finding out exactly which Graphics card will work in your AGP8X motherboard? The following list displays all the compatible Graphics cards for an AGP8X motherboard in decending order (Top Graphics cards are faster than bottom ones in each catagory)

If your Motherboard supports AGP 8X then here is a list of compatible Nvidia cards.

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.

Need new video card


that is a 4x AGP motherboard..about the best graphics card I"ve used for that would be a nvidia 6600gt-AGP.. it will run circles around the 5200 or 5500 and you can find them for close to the same price.
hope this helps in your decision..

Upgrade compatibility continued


hiya

as this pc is skt 775 and has dual core support then it is quite likely that the e5200 will work but may need a bios update to support this cpu...

just goto dells site and choose the pc u have and select drivers then download the lastest bios, transfer it to the dell pc run it as its a self extractor system will reboot perform the update then bobs ya uncle.......pop in new cpu and hey presto cheapo ugrado

#and as for the graphics card you will need to accertain which pcie version u have as most dell pc's only have pcie v1 so wont be able to handle the newer gpu's on the market.......

hope this helps
