My girlfriend has a dell dimension 2400 and it is well maintained. It can't, however, handle the sims 3 which is what she wants to play, it error that it doesnt have the graphics capability. I know dell machines are p.o.s. to try to mess with. Is it possible to just upgrade the graphics card, or are they specific to dell computers.

Here are the specs of a dell 2400: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/SYST...sm_en/specs.htm

Thanks for your help in advance.

You may be able to update the graphics card. According to that site, your system uses PCI not AGP or PCI-Express cards and the power supply is rated for 200W. This will seriously limit you in terms of what you can get. You can get a graphics card if it is PCI (Not AGP or PCI-E) and if it will work with a 200W power supply.

Thanks for the information, the best I could find was a 250w card. I will probably put a better rated, used power supply in it first.
