Upgrade Graphic Card

Jump to solution

Hello Communitym,

I would like to replace the ATI Radeon HD 3400 graphic card in my Dimension XPS 420 computer with a PSU = 375 watts. Specifically, I prefer a dual monitor card with two DVI-I connector ports to connect my 2408 WFP and U2410 monitors to it. Although the computer box is standard size, the current graphic card looks to be low profile rather than high profile. My goal is to be able to work on either monitor. My budget is at most $100.00 because the computer is not used for playing games and the likes. What replacement card might you suggest?

Thank you in advance.
