I hope to upgrade the video card it so i can play games like cs source and the new video games that require a good graphix card.
I have a Dell dimension 4300, and might buy a nice new suped up computer but thought i might try a little upgrade while the money saves.
would BFG - NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT OC Graphics Card work for my computer? I am not very computer savvy at all...
I recall doing some research regarding bottle neck limitations with the dell 4300 that upgrading would work to some extent but the motherboard limited something.
I ran Everest and this is what it came up with.
