Will this Graphics card fit in my computer?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi. I was thinking about buying a GeForce 8800 GT. I have a Dell dimension 8400 and have 3gb of ram. If it cant fit can you suggest one for me? I was also going to buy a 600watt PSU.

It should, its really not that big of a card.

If it doesnt you can always get a cheap case for $50.

Hard to say unless one has your case. I'd say look-up the dimensions of the card and then measure the distance to the back of the case and see if you have clearance.

Thanks for your info.. I think i solved my problem. I have four slots. I have the audio card,video card, firewire controller(which i dont use),and conexant internal modem(which i dont use). So i removed them and put the audio card in the first slot and video card in the fourth slot and now there is enough space for a bigger video card.
