Having problems with your Dell Precision Workstation 420 MiniTower PC Desktop ?

What are some of the best graphic cards i can put in a dell precision 420 workstation? I am currently upgrading to dual p3 933mhz cpu upgrading the Rambus memory to atleast 1gb.


Answers :

Hi

The dell has a AGP x4 slot, so any AGP X4 / X8 card will work. a X8 card will work at the x4 speed.

Depends on what you wish to do with this computer, its definitely not a computer for games, gaming the latest titles.

Go with Any video card that supports x4 agp slot.

I personally wouldn't put much money into this pc.
The Geforce 6200 will do fine with any other work except for playing the newest games that are out there, generally the whole machine is not meant for that purpose. - geforce 6200 AGP x4/x8 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133236

Again it depends what you wish to do with the machine, here are some workstation video cards : http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010380449%201573838114&name=AGP%204X%2f8X

Can you mix 1gb and 2gb dimms in the same machine (for a total of 6gb)? I added two 2gb 1066 DDR2 dimms (''OCZ'') to a PC that already had two 1066 DDR2 1gb dimms (''Kingston''). I moved the 1gb dimms to sockets 3&4 and put the two 2gb dimms in sockets 1&2. BIOS settings are on ''Auto'' for all memory (5-5-5-15). When I boot the system, BIOS only detects 4GB of total memory (as does Windows 7 64bit). The two 2gb dimms aren't even recognized (yes, they are seated properly). Can I not mix 1 and 2
