Hi everyone, I have a Dell 4600i, which I am upgrading at the moment, its now got 4 gig memory, 600 watt winpower atx psu, Northwod pentium 4, 2.80ghz. just put Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit on it and now I want a good agp x8 graphics card that compatible with with windows 7, I was thinking about 512MB RADEON HD 3450 but not sure about the motherboard if it will run ok ect as its an old sytem

the mother board is a dell motherboard E210882 rev.A00, just wondered if it will be ok or can anyone recomend an agpx8 card that will run ok with windows 7.

Thanks.

If you can find one the GeForce 7600GT was the best card the 4600i can run its been one of the upgrades spoken about in the DELL Desktop Community Forum.

thanks for the reply, had a look on the Dells forum (thanks for the heads up)

So had a nosey on tinternet From 50 for a inno3d type upwards and evilbay 164.99 for the nvidia 7600 agp, there is cheaper priced ones if you import from USA or Hong Kong ect but dont want to go down that road been stung in the past.

My next question will be whats the difference between the inno3d geforce 7600 and the Nvidia geforce 7600, well apart from they are labelled up differently and they both use the same chip ect ect

Not familiar with inno3d but here's an example I can answer. I had the ATi HD5870 in my sight when an XFX HD5870 XXX Edition came on the radar. When I looked at the spec's they both obviously had ATi's engine and works but the XFX was OC'd and is guaranteed for life, for $5.00 difference in price if it were simply the OC I obviously can do this with CCC but the lifetime warranty that is transferable was worth $5.00. I know MSI, XFX and others do things like OC the cards, add better coolers, more RAM etc. so you would have to toggle over to the inno3d website and see how the specs add up.

As it seems like a standard case, I would suggest a Radeon HD 4650 or 4670. You can still find these on Newegg with the AGP Interface. The HD 3450 you had picked out would also work though I only make the HD 4650 or HD 4670 recommendation as they provide better performance. The HD 4650 also runs easily on weaker power supplies such as the 250W PSU your PC has.

His spec's show he has a 600W PSU so I don't think his power is an issue just not sure the other cards are supported but I'm sure he could return it if that were the case just be sure there is no restock fee for doing so.....

Sorry, was basing myself off the standard specs for a Dell 4600i from their website. Missed the specs. Thanks for pointing that out. Then in that case, I'd recommend the HD 4670 as it will probably provide you with the best performance with the AGP interface.

Thanks for the recomendation, I will have a nosey on the web and see what comes up here in the UK. The Neweg site is in the US so dont want to go through the shipping route ect.
