Is the ATI Radeon 9550 / X1050 graphics card compatible with a Dell Vostro 200?

I am trying for the first time to put together a system. Yeh I know...I need help. First of all is this a usable card. It is comming out of an existing system.
Thanks, ynotbme

If the card will fit in the box it'll probably work for you. When I looked up Dell Vostro 200 they were built into two kinds of cases. There was one type built in a slim case and the other type built in a mini case. The mini case is much wider than the slim case. It looks like both types of cases sport motherboards with X16 PCI-E slots for adding an aftermarket video card. Trouble will arise if your 9550/X1050 video card has an AGP connector instead of a PCI-E connector, or you have a full size video card and a slim case.

It appears you need an AGP low profile card for the slim type case. Since you already have the graphics card, is the rear I/O plate short enough to fit? If so, it is a low profile card. If not, the card is built for a standard width case and you can't use it with your slim case.
