Whats the Best graphics card for a DELL?

what socket do you have ?
PCI?
AGP?
PCI-e?

I hope you have pci-e. otherwise you are not really going to get a lot of power out of a card.
AGP is not that bad..

but pci ..spsh. you might as well be using onboard video lol.

If you want the best bang for your buck, I would suggest probably a 7600GT, or a 7800GT card. But those are really only PCI-e.
 
I have worked on some computer that are about 1 year old, and didnt have PCI-e, or AGP.
I believe that most of them were HP ....

But you might as well bump up your ram to at least 2gigs if your mobo can handle that sort of thing.
 
Get rid of the dell and build yourself a nice computer dont waste anymore money on the dell. !!!

edit.

I use to own one. you cant upgrade that thing for crap!! no agp no pci-e just 4 ugly pci slots!! it sucked!
 
i would get a Nvidia GeForce 7300 LE its a decent video card it came with my dell and it works fine. but u could get the 7600 GT and garden grove u can just customize the pc take parts out and put in pci-e slots thats what i did !!( i asked a friend to do it)
 
Still. . . Dell = pain, Custom = Fun, like you said you had a friend do it. what if he doesn't have a friend that knows how to? cause i don't.

Edit

Dells arent that hard to work on but doing what he said is. putting an agp slot in when there isn't one
 
If you can operate a screwdriver AND know how to read you are more than qualified to start building computers.

installing hardware is about as complicated as plugging in old school NES cartridges. Installing a cpu takes about as much care as successfully splitting an oreo cookie. The only thing you have to be sure of is component compatibility. Take the plunge!
 
my dells not too bad, although it has agp, but im just gonna salvage the case from it and buy a new everything, scept my sound card cuz its still good, but as long as you know what your doin dells arent that bad to work on
 
Saosin, you know you'll need to buy a new copy of windows right? As soon as you get rid of that crappy dell mobo Windows won't work, and your copy that came with your dell won't install on a computer that doesn't have dell branded hardware. Just an FYI, happened to me once. I got lucky and have a friend with an MSDN subscription, and used one of his copies of XP till I bought vista.
 
I thought I would salvage a dell case too. That is until I took it apart and found out that Dell refuses to play nicely with non-Dell components. It didn't conform to ATX mountings or I/O panels which means you're stuck with their mobo which means you're stuck with their awful RAMBUS Memory, which means you're stuck with a Dell. Or you could get a new case.
 
Don't even get me started on macbooks.

I just build a new system, and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. It's much much cheaper than buying a new dell too. If I built my new computer on dell, I would have paid almost $1000 more and I wouldn't have been able to get the parts I wanted.
