Hello,

I have an Dell inspiron 1520 and it has 3gb of memory 60gb HD an 8400 Gs Nvidia Graphics card, also i have a core two duo 2.0 ghz processor. Im not sure if or where i can upgrade my video card but it seems to be that crappy part of my comp. With Sc2 and D3 coming out i want to make sure i have a good enough card. I can manually put in the card if somebody can help me decide where and what card to buy. Also i only have 15gb space left on hd, would this be limiting my computers performance? I did not think so but why not ask because my friend has only 2gb mem same card worse processor and a bigger hd and his comp get better windows rating then mine.

Thanks,
SHOCKEM :thumbsup:

From what I have read, that computer does have a modular graphics card that can be upgraded. However, Dell uses a proprietary slot so you have to get the replacement card from them. Here's their page. You may want to do some research on installing this graphics card before you purchase.

The thing i have noticed in dells is that if you dont ask for better external graphics from dell while buying it the is usually not a PCI-E , nore when AGP was being used. Personally I am not a fan of dell do to poor hardware/software with MOST not all.
