Dell Vostro 200 graphic card

Jump to solution

Hi! I'm wondering what graphic card will work on my computer... I bought this computer long time ago it was my first desktop and I wasn't the one who bought it. Do you guys know what graphic card would work for this computer? Because I tried upgrading the graphic card driver online but it says that it's current and the latest update is while back in 2010... do you guys know any graphic card works for this computer and works well on popular 3D online games now  like Aion or Diablo 3. Thanks for your help! Please give me some suggestion.

Do you even have a dedicated graphics card to update?  If not, you just need a dedicated PCI Express X16 card.  I would just look at getting an AMD HD 6570 like this one HERE.   Is your computer the mini tower or slim model?

I think my computeris slim model , I'mnot sure what you mean by if I have a dedicated graphicscard to update but I tried updating this cards driver and it said it's the latest verison and it's from 2010. Are you sure the AMD HD 6570 works for my computer? And its price is kinda high for me haha.... Sorry I don't know much about computer parts.

What does it show as your display driver in Device Manager?  Go to your Device Manager and click on the plus sign to see display information.  

If you have the slim model, you can only use low profile video cards.   The one I linked is low profile and probably one of the least expensive for it performance.   There are other newer low profiles cards like the Nvidia GT 520 & AMD HD 6450 that might be less money, but do not have the performance of the HD 6570.   These may be all you need, however.

The card shown is compatible with the Dell slims, but if it's too much, here is a cheaper one: www.newegg.com/.../ShellShocker.aspx

Note that the $25 rebate is claimed by mail.
