Both solutions are wrong. The Dell Inspiron 9400/1705 is a laptop. If you buy a Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for this laptop, you need to buy a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 motherboard for a discrete video card. The integrated video is a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The integrated video has the video chipset on the motherboard and the discrete video (GeForce Go 7800) has the video chipset on the video card.
The best place to purchase the Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 laptop is eBay. If available on eBay, the price could range from $230-$300 and search for "Dell 9400 video" or the card name. Some eBay sellers will give you a $50 or so credit, if you purchase a card from them. The video card can be downgraded (ATI Mobility Radeon® X1400 HyperMemory)
or upgraded (NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS or GTX). Also, you can try parts-people.com, but they're typically more expensive and reliable.
Yes, the video card can be repaired in most cases. Search eBay for Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 repairs.
Hi , Did you try re-installing the drivers of the card , If the performance is slow it can be due to other reasons , your processor taking more load , go to Task Manager and check the Ram and Processor utilization. Please do let me know the system configuration.
Same problem with a different card - probably something else.
Games require lots of RAM. I would add as much as possible. I recommend crucial.com. They can automatically examine your PC online, and make suggestions. Cheap, fast, top quality. Been using them for years.
Well, this pretty much comes down to how much $ or € or any other currency you're willing to spend as well as what games you're most likely to play.
If you don't wanna spend a fortune but still get a very good and reasonable performance, you could try GeForce 7600 GT or 7800 GT [7800 GT being better]. Both of these can be had quite cheaply these days. If you want something even more powerful that doesn't require you to sell a kidney on E-bay, then try GeForce 8800 GT, more precisely MSI NX8800GT-OC. Compared to ordinary 8800GT's, this one's beefed up just a bit more. Alternatively - if you can find that specific mode - almost any would do; still, I'd recommend Asus EN8800GT.
As you may have noticed, I've suggested only nVidia cards: I've never been too much into ATI + nVidia is leading the race these last few months. However, if you want to swing ATI way, then instead of 7800 GT find yourself a some ATI 1950 XT or whatever they call it. It is roughly equivalent to the 7800.
For high end ATI's, look for 3850 HD or something akin to that - there's a lot of review online.
Remember: read reviews first - shop later.
P.S. Make sure your PCI-Express x16 slot really is a x16 by reading your motherboard manual.
