Better?
There's no real upgrade to it yet so it's pointless even thinking about it, the card hasn't even been available for a month yet.

Why do you think your GT220 is just "ok"? What are you doing with the computer?

How long have you owned this system?
Is it still under warranty?
If it is then you would have to contact Dell about upgrading the video.
We can not assist in anything that would possibly void the warranty that may be in place at this time.
The card you have if I am reading this correct has 1 gig of memory?
That in itself is a great card.
Are you playing games, video's, movies?
Is there a issue with the card itself?

The computer hasn't been delivered yet. i bought it with the 1gb card, figured I'd upgrade a little later because they had multiple video card options. i play games but nothing too extreme, mainly use to watch videos, face book, my space, i tunes etc. but I've changed my mind thanks to you all.

I guess after using this garbage pc for 10yrs:
Intel ®
celeron ® CPU 2.53Ghz, 1gb of ram
windows xp

i was scared I'd end up with a computer somewhat alike. just have to wait and see what a i5 processor will do lol
