Cards range from $50-$500 It all depends on how High-end of a Card you need, There are a Few Things you need to know before buying a Card though
1) Is this a Laptop or desktop, Sounds easy enough but Laptops usually have no slots to install an additional card
2) What type of slot (If Applicable) you have. Options are usually AGP, PCI, PCI-e (PCI Express Which ranges from x1 to x16, for graphics this is usually x16) and PCI-e 2.0 (Newer model of computers and New model of cards)
3) If your Power supply can handle an addtional card. Some cards draw alot of power and require their on power connection.
4). Space inside the computer, Graphics card come in low profile for small spaces, Knowing the appropriate size of the Card is very important.

All of this can be researched and Installed by yourself, and the card is easy to install, Just slide it in the correct port, or you can bring this into Best Buy and We can install this for $49.99 + additional taxes, Its upto you to decide it the work warrants saving the money

Lookin for a good video card


I have a ATI Radeon 4870 1G HD - amazing graphics card, although I bought it for about $750 NZD which is like $400 American it is an excellent top of the line graphics card.

I've got a few sites for you to check out graphic cards, compare and contrast. They helped me, so hopefully they will help you!

Upgrade graphic card


Your RAM is expandable to 4GB. 400-MHz and 533-MHz DDR2 unbuffered SDRAM is your type.
For your graphics card, you may use either a PCI slot or PCIeX slot. You'll get the best performance if you use the PCUeXpress slot.Price would be determined by the vendor from which you purchase it. Installation is as simple as installing the drivers from the CD that comes with it and pushing the card into the slot after you have turned off the PC and removed the cover. Instructions for that can be found at

I use nVidia cards myself and find them reliable and easy to configure. Let me know if you have any other questions. Please rate my answer.

Pci-e question


Hi

I am afraid Dell OptiPlex GX260 has no support for PCI-e.

You can however install a half-length AGP (66MHz) graphics card.

Graphic card


the pc you are using probably has onboard video and not a seperate dedicated AGP graphics card, which needs atleast 64MB of memory and T & L support, so check the card before you buy, if you already have an AGP card fitted it may not support T & L
