Hey this is Sterling's friend. I'm currently looking to buy a new graphics card for my dell demension E510. I'm looking for a card with loosely the following specifications: Pci express x16, DDR3 memory (although it doesnt really matter if it is DDR2.)I also want the card to have at least a 256mb and a 128 bit memory interface. Lastly i want the card to be in the price range of about $125. Does anyone have suggestions? I was looking at the nvidia geforce 7600GT.

Thanks :thumbsup:

Yea, if I were you I'd go for either the Nvidia 7600 series or the ATI X1600 series. I upgraded my Dell first with a X700 september 05 and just this september i put a X1600 in. It can handle ALOT. Depending on your processor and the amount of RAM you have. I play Counter-Strike Source with all High settings @ 1024 by 768 with 4xAA and 8xAnsio and i get anywhere between 45 and 95 FPS. Either card is good, and they are both fairly cheap. Hope that helps.

I've got the eVGA geForce 7600GT running on my Vista system and it's great! I play a few games with it (at lower resolutions because of my eyes) and it works fantastically!
