Optiplex 210L Video Upgrade HELP !

This question is not answered

First of all, i would like to say "Hello!" to all, `cause this is my first post!

Second of all, i would like to know which is the best video card i could put on my Optiplex 210L. I saw in the manual and inside my PC that it has a PCI-E slot, but it is a much smaller one than other PCI-E slots on other PCs. Searching on the internet, i found out that there are video card that could fit in my PCI-E slot, but it had only 256RAM and (worst of all) it was an ATI card. I want to find something that it has at least 512 RAM, cause i want to make my PC a gaming one. I want to play GTA IV, NFS Undercover, Timeshift, and other games that require a very good video card.

Third of all, CAN ANY ONE HELP ME ?

Best regards, Alex!

  • Hi Alex, You did not say wither you have the Mini Tower Computer or the desktop computer. There is not a big selection for the PCIe x1 graphics cards HERE, all the big caeds are 256MB in total. Had a look for the PCI based graphics cards that you could use in your PCI slots, and there not much better, see HERE.

  • God moring Robin, cause here is morning right now.

    Thnk you for helping me, but those are weak cards. I have the mini tower version of Optiplex 210L. Can you give me a link of any cards at 512 RAM that can go on my PC ? I found a few days ago an ATI X1050 (or something like that) on 256RAM.  [:'(]

    I want a GAMING video card, but i feel like my chances are very low.

    Best regrds, Alex.

  • Hi alexsqq, Dug out this card HERE, they are all 256MB of ram. The other cards are not bad, but, they are very dear to buy. see HERE.
