    Sorry Mate but Dell Dimension 1100 only has 3 PCI slots for expansion and no PCI express. This is ok for internal modems etc but for graphics cards it is not so good but not awful. There are some decent PCI cards on the market but they are usually a bit older and of course slower.
    If you have any more questions just post again and I'll answer!

    dude, pci is aging badly and its usually only good for modems and sound cards. the pci bus is too slow for video and worse..for games..if you only think of playing low end games such as games before 2003...if not then your pci video card will have a hard time..its just too dam slow
    you should tell us what you plan to do with the card
