Hey all,

I have a Dell Dimension 4700 stock 2004 edition. I've recently upgraded the HD to a 1tb barracuda 7200rpm, and gotten 2 1gb sticks of crucial ballistix tracer ram. My main question is, if anyone knows what one of these computers comes with stock for motherboard and psu, would I be able to install and run the ZOTAC nVidia GeForce 9500GT 1 GB DDR2 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card? Also I do know for sure my pci slot is pci x16 express. Thanks!

I will go out on a limb and say yes. The card should pull ~40 watts loaded. Assuming the 300/305 watt PSU (24 amp max on the 12V rails), it should power the card OK. Specs list a PCIE X16 slot for that board.
