GeForce FX 5200 on a Dell system (I need to know if this will work)

  1. I cant get the GeForce FX 5200 by chaintech installed in my dell 4600c.. The only thing I can think of that would cause it to not work is that I don't know what my power supply is and it requires 250 watts. Can anyone tell me if this will work? And will it matter that it's a slim computer and wont shut because the card is to wide?

    Well first off welcome to techspot!

    Well youre card is prob. set up to fit in the AGP (advanced graphics port) on your mobo. (although there are some exceptions) It is ussually blue of brown and off in the corner by itself. I doubt you bought a AGP card that wouldnt fit into the AGP slot. It could be because of youre power supply but i would make sure you have the card properly seated first. Good luck!

    Don't be fooled... My 5200 needs 300W of power. It might be that.
