Dell Dimension 3100: PCI Graphics Card

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am using a Dell Dimension 3100 as a stopgap while I save for a new workstation. This machine really does define the term "budget PC" - its only internal expansion options are one PCIe x1 slot, and one 32 bit PCI slot.

I'd like to upgrade the graphics and I've been looking at an nVidia GeForce 6200. Does anyone know if the Dell will support PCI graphics, or am I stuck with the crappy Intel GMA915?

Yeah, of course it will. I did the same thing with my 2400. Upgraded to an MX4000 and owned CoD:UO.

Cheers for the response. Do I have to set anything in the BIOS or is it automatic? Can both options run at the same time (for example for a dual-monitor setup)?
