Hello,
Advice needed for the Optimum upgrade of a graphics card from a Geforce 6800 256mb,
in an old Dell Dimension 5100, Pentium 4 3.40Ghz,
4G Ram,
305Watts,
I do a fair bit of gaming but don't need the latest card that would not run on my old system, just the best that I can run on the old girl please?
Cheers,
Fergus

is that even a PCI-E or is that an AGP slot unit.?

It has already been answered, scroll up and you can google the model number as well.

You can see in the review that it does work in a 1.0 slot and you can even go straight off sapphire site, it's 2.0. http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=915&pid=311&psn=&lid=1&leg=0

Sorry for not getting back to anyone on this sooner.
I want to keep the old girl for sentimental reasons (I have another more modern PC already).
Budget is not an issue, I have no kids and dress badly so might as well spend my cash on this.
The only concerns are there is no point buying a card that is too powerful for the system and I don't want to have to change the power source.

Thanks.
