  1. Hey

    Ive been browsing the web for new games that have come out that i want to buy and have checked compatability on system requirements lab but thay all seem to fail on the graphics card front. I have a ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 (ATI Radeon Xpress Series (0x5975)) according to the lab. What do you guys think is the best card for me to get on a medium budget? for use with gaming that will fit in my Dell inspiron 1501

    Cheers

    Oli T:rolleyes:

    I had a quick look at dells and they don't sell upgrades for video cards for inspirion 1501. also nothing at ebay so you may have to with this card or try to contact dell and ask the support.

    contacting dell support about your computer

    go to support.dell.com, click on "drivers e downloads" and there will be a place to enter your service tag number (found on the back of your dell computer). dell support will provide a list of graphic cards they sell that will work in your specific computer. shop around though, they're kinda high.
