  1. I just recently bought a dell inspiron and it runs great but couldnt play warhammeronline

    So saved up agian and bought a graphics card but the graphics card doesnt fit. Are there any graphics card that will fit in a case as small as the inspiron??

    If it's the office-type or portable desktop type of PC, i heard its graphics card was not upgradable. Only the ram is the upgradable.

    What model is your computer?

    Is it a small form PC?, generally these will need low profile cards

    Have had a look at your PC, and looks to be a slim PC which means your PCI cards will need to be low profile.

    Have a look at these here
