Updrade my Vidio card

  • I have a ATI Radeon 2400 128mg pci card that came with my Inspiron 530 with quad-core 2.4 would like to replace with a  Radeon HD2400 pro 512mb ddr2 AGP graphics card will it work or do I need adifferent vid card :

     

     

  • No....

     

    Your system takes a PCI-Express slot video card not an aging AGP slot card.  With the Quad core system you have a 350 watt power supply that can take anyone of the below cards starting from best to fair but each is much better then a 2400 card

     

    nVidia offerings.....

     

    1.  8800 GT

     

    2.  9600 GT 

     

    3.  8600 GTS

  • SG45 Then this vidio card should work on my puter:

    Radeon HD 3650 512MB DDR2 PCIe 2.0 Graphics Card

    Thanks for the info

  • Yes it will.   I did not suggest any ATI cards since I got two bad ones sometime ago and now stick with nVidia. 

     

    You can get it cheaper.... [ Not a very good gaming card if you are planning on it for games ]
