Hello, I have a Dell Optiplex 9010 and I am trying to get a new graphics card. I currently have a AMD Radeon R9 200 Series Card, but it is at the end of its life and I need a new graphics card. Can anyone tell me how compatible the Dell Optiplex 9010 M9KCM motherboard and/or the Dell Optiplex 9010 is with most graphics cards? Thank you and have a great day!
Most AMD R series cards DO NOT SUPPORT LEGACY CSM
or DOS VESA VIDEO mode 103 and therefore do not work at all.
You must use NVIDIA based card or RADEON HD 2000 3000 4000 5000 6000 7000 series card.
Asus EAH6450 for example.
You can use an ASUS EAH6450 or a GIGABYTE GDDR5 GT 1030 video card.
You cannot use ANY R series Radeon card ever.
Hello, I understand what you are saying, but the graphics card I have been using on this computer for the past year/2 years is a Radeon R9 200 Series graphics card.
"Radeon R9 200" OEM Dell made card would likely work but generic Retail cards would not.
Validated Dell OEM video cards =
VVYN4, D7DYD, 2C7NH AMD Radeon HD7470
0WH7F, N1N66, NFXD5, 2FVV6 AMD Radeon HD7470 Low profile
9M4KG, NJ0D3 AMD Radeon HD7570
KFWWP, 4C5DK AMD Radeon HD7570 Low profile
YG17P Nvidia GeForce 640GT
They talk about Radeon HD7000 series for MT / DT /SFF
and GT640 YG17P ONLY FOR MT.
MT needs full size bracket like this card.
There are no such options for USFF because that has ZERO expansion Slots.
