Dell Dimension 8200 Graphics Card!

Hello

Is it Possible for me to upgrade the Graphics Card in my Dell Dimension 8200 to a 512MB AGP Graphics Card?

I know the slot is a 4X Slot and it is an AGP Slot and also I know it can hold a 256MB Graphics Card but I wandered if I could upgrade to a 512MB Card in it?

Thanks

Yes, AGP 8x cards are backwards compatible to 4x.

Check the power requirments of the graphics card, in case you need to upgrade the PSU, the default PSU in Dimension 8200 is 250w.

Hello

Thanks for your Response!

What is the PSU?

Is it the Power Supply?

So the Dell Dimension 8200 can take a 512MB AGP Graphics Card then?
