Hi
I was hoping that someone could help me help my friend. He has a Dell Dimension 4600 2.8GHz. Here is a link for more info on this computer
c/net.com

Now the card that I was looking at is the BFG 6800 GS that I have found on ebay the main thing I'm concerned about is the slot. Cause the computer doesn't have a PCI express slot and from what I can tell this card isn't PCI express. www.e-bay.ca
Also if anybody knows of a better card for a better price that would be great.
I have gotten 2GB of memory for $8 and a 465w psu and are getting him a LG dvd burner.

My friend doesn't play games but does watch alot of videos from you-tube and downloads tv shows and will be burning some dvd's.

If you can help me help my friend with this or any other cheap upgrade suggestions that would be good for this Dell computer we would appreciate it.

Thank you for all you time.

You can't use PCI-E graphics. It uses onboard, but has an AGP 8x expansion slot
Yes, the card you linked to will work

Thanks for your fast reply.

If I can ask you or anybody else another question do you think that this card is the best one for this computer?
