New Graphics Card For Dell Inspiron Desktop 530

This question is answered

Hello,

The Graphics card on my desktop pc died last week (crashed twice, recovered, now white lines down the dell screen followed by the blue screen of death). I am looking for a new one and am unsure which ones are good and more importantly compatible. I am looking for a nvidia graphics card at a reasonable price that "packs a punch" per se. My dell service tag is <ADMIN NOTE : Service tag removed per Privacy policy>.

Thanks in Advance.

    Yes, the Palit nVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Card (2GB, DDR3, HDMI, PCI Express 2.0, as shown in your link will work, but it requires a 6-pin PCIe power connector, you might need to upgrade the power supply, the Inspiron 530 Mt has either a 300w, or a 350w power supply installed depending on which processor was factory installed.

    Assuming that you have an Inspiron 530 Mt and not the 530s Slimline version.

    This system supports a PCI Express x16 video card, check out the card shown HERE
