I'm not sure if eBay links are allowed, but this is the video card I was hoping to purchase for my PC. I don't think it's compatible, can somebody give me some confirmation? By the way, I know it says "Car" XD

No. Your Dell 3000 supports PCI expansion cards, only. Even though the description of the card states it is PCI, the photo of the box shows a PCI-express tag. (red flash, upper right)

That GPU should work if you have a suitable PSU to power it.

The psu on a dell dimension 3000 will not be powerful enough to supply the card you want to buy as its only 250w,you need at least 450w to power that card and at least 650 if your gaming,choose a card that has 512mb not 1g

Well, if there is a higher grade card that is compatible for my PC on another site, I'm ok with it. References/linkage? =P
Ive already gave you 3 links,Did you look at them?your limited to what you can buy for that model,the mobo is very old,also if your upgrading the card you should consider upgrading the ram as its only 256mb on that model,the ram for that model is( ddr184pin)and your limit is 2g,so good luck what ever you decide

I've already ordered 1GB RAM x2. I was just meekly asking if you already know another site that offers a video card which fits my needs and is a more evolved GeForce version in comparison to the one you linked. I wasn't able to find anything, and if that is the best of your capabilities, then fine.
