Hello all,

Im running a Dell Dimension 8400 and Windows Xp Home.My current card is a ATI Radeon x800SE.Im running dual Acer AL2216W monitors.Im wanting a dual DVI card to replace the X800Se I have now.My main use is photo processing,no gaming at all.

Is this even possible to do?If so,how hard and technical is the swap of the cards going to be?

Thanks...John

Hey Jrocket, welcome to Geeks To Go.

This thread looks like it's in the right section to me. :)

No gaming, eh? This 9500GT is on sale for $30 shipped after mail-in rebate. Sounds like it would fit your needs perfectly.

The installation is pretty straight forward. Open your case, unscrew the old card's bracket, remove the old card, insert the new card, screw in the new card's bracket, close the case. Done! (With the hardware side of things, at least. You will, of course, also need to install drivers for the new card. That's as simple as going to NVIDIA's website and following the instructions there.)
