Look at this card. It also doesn't require an auxiliary plug. It also has dx11 and eyefinity support. The 4650 will also work for your needs, but like Mickliq says, it's getting dated.

Did you look to see if the card has a DVI or HDMI port? or just VGA? The 8300 is an extremely low end card anyway. Do yourself a favor & replace it with something decent.

I am in a wheelchair and could not check the back of my computer below by desk. But I did find the original Dell printout for setting up the computer and it says that I have DVI and VGA but no HDMI. The computer was purchased in Aug. 2007. How would the new monitor do with the DVI cable?

Do you have a suggestion for a good replacement graphics card that will work well with the Dimension 9200 and the ST2420L monitor?

Look at the radeon 4650. It doesn't require a separate plug. It draws it's power form the pci-e slot.

DVI & HDMI send the exact same digital graphics signal. HDMI is just DVI + audio in a single cable. As long as the new monitor supports DVI, you're good to go.

"Do you have a suggestion for a good replacement graphics card"

The Radeon HD 4650 is a decent performer, but it's becoming a bit dated. If you prefer ATI/AMD, you'd probably be better off with something from the HD 5000 or HD 6000 series. What's the primary use of your system? How much would you be willing to spend on a card?

I just looked at the monitor specs. It supports VGA, DVI, & HDMI.

I would like to stay below the $125 range if possible. I usually buy at discount at Amazon. I primarily do word processing and browsing the web but was thinking about using the new monitor for Netflix movie streaming. I have an Intel quad core processor (2.4 GHz) and 4 GB of ram. My machine says Dell Dimension 9200 but the Dell Support Center says it is a Dell DXP061. I am running Windows XP.
