Inspiron 620 MT vs. 660 new purchase - Video Card upgrade?

This question is answered

I am ready to purchase either an Inspiron 620MT or an Inspiron 660.

I would like to upgrade the Video Card. Yesterday the 620 MT gave me an option to upgrade to an AMD Radeon HD 6450 1GB DDR3 on the customize order screen. Today that option is not there. There is no option to upgrade in the 660 order screen.

I am choosing the i3-2120 with 6GB memory and 1TB Hard Drive for both.

Any thoughts or suggestions on this upgrade or purchase choice?

I am not a gamer. I watch videos and work with pictures. I am upgrading to a 24" monitor as well.

Thank you for your input.

  • If the 2105 or 2125 are available, note that they have Intel 3000 graphics, which are reasonably robust, making a discrete video card unnecessary for your purposes.

  • Thank you. I want to get the most up front since I tend to keep my computer for many years without upgrading for the most part. Sounds like the basic integrated graphics will work for me.

  • I think you'd get a few years use out of it, but there's no telling what kinds of demands the future will bring.
