My computer is 6 years old. It is a Dell Dimension XPS T850r. Right now, buying a new computer isn't in the cards and my graphics card is fading fast. :thumbsup: The graphics card is an NVidia GeForce2 GTS/GeForce2 Pro. Does anyone know if there is something compatible that I can replace it with? I don't care a whole lot about performance (obviously), more is nice, but spending a lot of $$ on this computer isn't worth it at this point. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks. :flowers:

acordoing to dells Specifications: Dell™ Dimension™ XPS Txxx and Txxxr Systems Reference- your computer has a 2X AGP video card slot. so i would suggest going to newegg.com and buying a new video agp video card. you dont have to buy one that is a 2x you can get a 8x agp, and when keep the same video card when you get a new computer.

here is a listing of all 4x/8x apg video cards from newegg

I'd probably just get a new computer.. That's usually what I say to everyone, but AGP 2x isn't even worth upgrading.

AGP 2X :thumbsup: I think I can get one of those somewhere cheaper than a new computer. I just pulled my old one out to get a look at it, put it back in for now and will search for a replacement. As long as a 4X or an 8X will work in it's place.
