video upgrade

Can a graphics card like an Nvidia Geforce 8400 be used to replace the Geforce 4 440 Go in my I8200 built in 2002? Are there any incompatibility issues?

No, there's no such card made to fit that chassis.

Re: video upgrade

Do you know of a source for used cards that would fit? If my graphics card is bad, what are my options?

Re: video upgrade

If the card is bad, you are limited to what was offered by Dell in this series. There are a couple of nVidia QuadroFX cards, which tend to be fairly expensive even now - and an ATI 9000, all 64 M and all proprietary to this C-series model.
