video card for dell optiplex gx270 for Window

Specs: Windows XP, 3.19

Hi - I am in need of a used (ie "cheap" ) dedicated video card for my PC. I only spent $65 for the CPU just over a year ago and cannot afford another PC upgrade now...I priced the
Diamond Multimedia Stealth S60 Radeon 7000 64MB DDR SDRAM PCI Graphics Card but cannot find other brands to compare online, not sure why. The cheapest price I can find is around $40....Any money-saving suggestions or other ways I can get rid of the annoying buffering in all my videos? I have upgraded Abobe Flash Player, just completed an update, and updated my DELL drivers. Thanks!

Thommo

Lot's of them here. Your computer should also have an AGP slot, but the problem with the older Dells is the power supply. You may need to upgrade that too, and since you're on a limited budget, I guess that's out of the question. If you need more help, post back with your power supply specs which can be found on the label of the power supply inside your machine.

A CPU is a chip that fits in a socket on the motherboard. Did you buy a new CPU & install it in your Dell board? Or are you mistakingly referring to your computer as a CPU? Please use the correct terminology.

The Radeon 7000 is a slow outdated piece of sh!t from about 10 years ago & it only supports DX7. You're going to be VERY unhappy with it. You should be looking at cards that support DX9. And why would you want a PCI card when your board supports AGP?

Here's a GeForce FX5200 128MB AGP for $31. Not a great card, but it supports DX9 & is infinitely better than the crappy Radeon 7000:

Here's an FX5500 256MB AGP for $40. It's better than the FX5200:

Here's a Geforce 6200 512MB AGP for $35 after rebate:

And here's a Radeon 7000 64MB AGP for just $9.50, what does that tell you? Ya think the one you were looking at for $40 may have been overpriced? lol
