Was curious about picking up a faster/better Video Card for my Dimension 8400. I don't do any gaming, but I always notice a big difference between the appearance/clarity/resolution on my older Apple 20" Cinema Display and my current Dell UltraSharp 1908WFP.
I currently have:
Dell UltraSharp 1908WFP 19-inch Widescreen DVI
1440x900 pixels resolution
(With Video Card GForce 6200LE) < Would a faster card necessarily give me a better overall appearance?
My G5 configuration:
Apple 20" Cinema Display DVI
1,680 x 1,050 optimal resolution
(With Apple Geforce 7800 GT 256MB)
You could certainly install a current low end PCIe x16 video card and with newer drivers things will look better. But first, have you tried loading the latest drivers for the 6200LE? That might make a difference. Also open the Display Properties- Settings. Make sure the color quality is Highest. Click Advanced, make sure your on Normal size 96 DPI.
The 6200 Lousy Edition is the issue.
An Inexpensive Radeon HD5450 will improve visuals.
