I bought a Dell Dimension E520 about a year and a half ago with an ATI Radeon X1300 PRO..realising this graphics card is pretty poor, I've decided to upgrade to a more powerful 8800GT to play some games. With that in mind, I will also get a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 500 for Dell. I might also upgrade my CPU if I feel like it..I have an E6400 atm.
I need to know is it possible to fit the 8800GT and will it work??
Is it possible to utilize 800mhz ram on this computer?
Is it a good idea to get a Q6600 (theyre cheaper than E6600s for some reason)?
Also, has anyone tried the Silencer 500 or any of the other PC Power & Cooling Dell products before? and if so, please give some feedback because I want to know if it's reliable and the quality of it.
The Q6600 will not work the system does not support quads.(thank to info provided by Shesagordie)
The PC power and cooling supply is an excellent supply. I put silencer into a old Dimension 8300 and it is still performing flawlessly. These are highly rated supplies so rest easy there and installation was very simple.
