  1. I want to install nvidia gts 460 gpu in my dell 535s desktop
    my specification are
    Intelp35/g33/g31 motherboard
    intel core 2 duo E7400 2.8ghz
    4gb ddr2 800mhz ram
    currently i have ATI HD4350 512mb gpu istalled
    I want to upgrade it to nvidia Geforce GTS460,the problem is the chassis is ultra thin to accommodate the graphic card also my power supply unit provides only 250watt of electricity...what are the chances of upgrading to nvidia?

    In my experience with IBM machine upgrades, you could get a good and cheap case, pop your dell system in there, and that way you could be able to upgrade your GPU and PSU at the same time.

    Just two of my cents.

    no chance of upgrading to any major videocard with that psu. i recommend replacing that psu and getting a 650w corsair psu to replace it.

    also contact dell to find out if a 460gt will work with that motherboard, dell makes a lot of proprietary components that will not accommodate any non oem hardware.
