Hello everyone!

I have an old Dell Dimension that's completely maxed out in what it can handle, but has been given to me as a handy down due to it not working and being old.

It has 4 sticks of 1gb DDR2 running at 667 and a Pentium D 960 running at 3.6Ghz.

The only problem with it is that the graphics card is busted, so what's the highest card I can get that is compatible and won't become bottle-necked?

This website should help you choose a card based on performance

Don't choose a card over the 1gb gtx 650 ti boost.

BTW does the mobo have a PCIe x16 port on it?

Radeon HD7750 will be the best option for you. One reason is your PSU (which is 375W). So, a low-TDP card like HD7750 will be best. Also, I think it'll be a good balance, without bottleneck.

Yeah I would recommend a HD 7850 2gb (if it can fit in your case)
If not try a gtx 650 ti.

The thing is, if you get a GPU thats any better your system might bottleneck it

BTW make sure you psu has enough power to power the card. Otherwise you might have to buy one with more power
