Compatible Graphics Card for Dell Optiplex 170L

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!

I recently bought a graphics card (an ati HD 3650) for €90 in my local PC World, only to find that it wasnt compatible with my computer (:swearing: <--Me)

Anyway, I would be forever grateful if somebody could help me to find a compatible graphics card with at least DirectX 9 capabilities and pixel shader 2.0/Shader Model 2.0.

If anybody has any ideas, please share them with me!

Thanks in advance!

It looks like you only have PCI slots available. (Not to be confused with PCI-E).

If $till Legendary is about, he runs on PCI graphics, with mixed results, think I've seen him with a 6200 and a ATI HD2400 before.

What sort of games are you trying to run? Anything new and I would strongly urge you to consider a new build/buy. PCI cards will only take you so far.
