Hey,
My friend wanted to buy my graphics card its an XFX Nvidia 7600GS 512MB DDR2
And he wanted me to install it into his comp.
When I opened up the case and took out that cover slot, I tired to fit the graphic card in but its like 5mm to be connected.
The graphic card is on the case slot but cannot connect...
Is this the MotherBoard problem? or the case?

What type of video card is it and what type does the motherboard support?

Older motherboards used to use a slot-type called "AGP / AGP4x/8x" and you could possibly be trying to install a video card that uses the PCI-Express / PCI-Express x16 type. Usually you can find this info on the side of the box or just by looking at the pin setup.

Of note the card can also be AGP or PCIe as well as the slots, give us the brands and model of all the equipment involved.

The motherboard has a PCI

the graphic card can fit in a AGP (i think) and a PCI

I tired to take out the Slot case on the back of the case but didnt budge....

And I cannot get the info ATM because its my friend's comp
What info would you need to find out
Also is there like a program that can tell you the spec
my friend doesn't know anything about computers

agp and pci are different slots one will not fit the other

to take the cover off the slot at the back of the case just bend it up and down until the 2 connecting spots to the case snap

From what I see that card uses a Agp slot. Like other's have asked, we need to know the Model of the Dell.

Based on what is posted on Xfx's wbsite it's a AGp 8x.

That's current cards, when the 7xxx and 8xxx were the hot cards(new) they came in different flavors since this is a used card we don't know the age.
But it should have a part number tag on the card.
