Geforce 6800 Xtreme AGP

I just put in a new Geforce 6800 Xtreme AGP 256mb video card into my Dell 260 Optiplex with 512mb Ram, and when i turn the computer on there is a constant loud beeping noise. It even does it with everything unplugged (only power source to the computer). Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

You will have to delete the bios settings, by removing the side of your pc and locating; on your motherboard the'JBAT1' terminals. The jumper should be put accross pins 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to pins 1-2. Boot the pc up and press del or F2 and set he time etc and in the standard bios settings highlight the default settings and press enter. In the peripherals menu make sure that you dissable on board graphics and chhose your AGP graphics as the primary graphics controller. Save all settings and exit and allow a re boot an hopefully your pc will start without problems, although there should be 2 short beeps. The only other roblem will be making sure that your dell motherboard has the AGP controller driver installed as the card will not function, so download motheboard drivers first and install if you have no cd.

No, a 9000 will not be enough. You'll need something from this list, and it will have to be AGP.

After I plug in my graphics card it makes a high pitch squealing.

Unplug the board, don't put the side panel on and listen for the sound. Sometime a rolled up newspaper can be used as a stethescope and help determine the squeal location.

I want to know about dell gx260

theoretically, yes, but whether you would actually want to purchase the card is a different story, 256mb cards are pretty much obsolete any more, and depending on your intended purpose, it probably won't do what you want. i would suggest getting a new pc, preferably custom built, as you'll pay alot less, and get a lot better computer. but in any event, as long as the gx260 has a pci-e, agp, or pci slot, it should be able to support a 256mb nvidia geforce card with no problem, probably not the 9800 gtx, but it could probably handle a 6800-7800

Upgrade card

Well, these are the minimum specs for Age of Conan:

OS: Windows Vista/XP
Processor: 3GHz Pentium IV
Video Card: Shader Model 2.0 and 128MB RAM: NVIDIA GeForce 5800 or ATI 9800

These are the specs of your computer (base):

  • Intel Pentium 4 550 (3.4GHz) Processor
  • 1GB PC2-4300 DDR2 Memory
  • Two 74GB WD SerialATA Hard Drives in RAID0 Drive Array
  • 16x DVD+/-R and 48x CD-RW Burner Optical Drives
  • Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Audio
  • NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Graphics Card with 256MB
Seems to me that you are okay. Would a faster computer be better? Of course. But as you are, the game should play alright. Upgrading to an 8 series Nvidia is worth the change, though.


Pci-e question


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

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

More info @


Is my Motherboard compatible?

Try to find out what the AGP voltage is on the motherboard.
Some graphics cards use 1.5 volts and some use 3.
If it's a 1.5 volt AGP slot and you plug a 3 volt graphics card in, it either wont work or you could permanantly damage both card and motherboard.
