A friend of mine is tight on budget, and the video card gifted to him

#1Shinra-ArmyPosted 10/8/2013 5:41:18 PM
doesn't fit in his computer.

He's got a Dell D06S

And an NVIDIA Geforce 9600GT-- that doesn't fit in it.

What do you recommend?

No kidding...I remember buying that card in 2002. It was $300 or $400, I forget which. Ran UT very nicely at the time. It's probably not even worth $20 now.

Edit: I was wrong. They are selling on Ebay starting around $30.

But honestly he should just get the money he'd pay for that prebuilt and build his own.

I recommend taking that card and making it into a bad ass GPU ashtray.

Somehow I doubt you bought a card in 2002 that came out in 2008.

get a low profile video card. Zotac GTX 650 low profile or Sapprhire 7750 low profile. Both around $100 and best you can fit in that think. GTX 650 has a bigger fan than the 7750.

I swear it was the 9600...or was it the 9800? My memory ain't what it used to be.

Edit: Radeon 9800 Pro, and it was in 2003. I hate being old.
