It would help to know the model number of your Inspiron but slim towers usually require low profile cards. If that's the case with your system, you can scratch most of those cards off your list. And if you were hoping to turn your Dell into a gamer, you can probably scratch that idea too. There's only a small selection of decent low profile video cards, plus you *may* have to upgrade the power supply to be able to run one. Once again, since it's a slim case, you can't buy an "off the shelf" replacement power supply...you're at the mercy of Dell.

I entered some search criteria into Newegg for low profile gaming cards & came up with four...three 9600GT's & one 8800GT.

Newegg, low profile, PCIe

Thanks jam.

I have to say you are the first person I have herd from on one of these question sites that actually went out of their way to find an answer for me :) The video cards you suggested though, are they supported by the Sims 3?
