Dell Optiplex 755 Desktop HELP Video Card

Jump to solution

Hello everyone, I'm new here and I really need your help 🙂 

I have a Dell Optiplex 755 Desktop and incredible as it seems that I didn't know the desktop had no graphic card (video card?) lol x) 

The desktop has been offered at Christmas, I wonder if you could indicate an ideal video card for my desktop which is not too expensive, 

I'm using Windows 7 Pro, I don't know much about computers components but I found this graphic card what do you think? Will work or nah? graphics-cards.specout.com/.../ASUS-GeForce-210-Silent 

I really need your help guys.

Actually thats bad advice because the card in question won't necessarily fit into any case EXCEPT TOWER due to the single slot configuration.  FAT WIDE heatsinks will not physically go into the Desktop SFF models and USFF has no slots so no card is an option.

That card's heatsink sticks out more than 1 slot wide.


This is why I always recommend specific ASUS Radeon HD5450 or 6450 cards.

if you're not into heavy gaming, that card will work fine.

Thank you so much for your advice, I'll see if I can find ASUS Radeon HD 6450 in Worten (Portugal) if I do not find, I have to buy on newegg 

And hope they send the product to Portugal x)
