Looks like a good price for a 7600GT to me...
#2
Next cheapest I can find a PCI-E 7600GT is £58.62 delivered on Aria super-special so think its quite a good deal this one. Nice upgrade for those Dell PC's...
#3
Anyone know if theres a passive version of this going cheap (just a heatsink instead of a loud fan?) Im building a quiet PC :) MSI do one, as do Gigabyte, but at £80 I think.
#4
I'd also like to know what you would suggest for a passive cooled graphics card (quietness is important) for the E520 as an upgrade from the onboard graphics. I won't be looking to play the latest games but I do wan't a DVI interface. Thanks.
#5
I will be listing the card on the link below for sale over the weekend. Great card for a quiet system. In original box etc, looking for £40 delivered

Be prepared to spend a little more if you want passive cooling - or have not such a good card. ebuyer have a 7600GS (about a third slower than the GT) for £42 delivered after Google Checkout. http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/125943

Also http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/121221 - MSI 1650PRO with heatsink cooler for about £58 delivered is a nice choice.

BTW - Whole hartedly agree milgo & russ, silent computing all the way (I use a heatpipe cooled 1650 pro myself). The OP is best value for a 7600GT but I personally would spend extra on silence myself (although I'm not a big gamer, still nice to occasionally play games!).

For £75 delivered you can get a passively cooled 8600GT http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/126985 which is both faster than the 7600GT and has onboard H.264 decoding thus would be a great idea for your media centre if your budget will stretch to it.

Milgo, I reckon the cheaper 7600GS will suit your needs fine. Russ, I'd consider the 8600GT.

I have one of those sitting in a box after I upgraded to my 7600GT. It's a good card, but looking a bit underpowered these days.
I'm very tempted by the passive 8600GT - a bit more oomph and silent to boot, which will go great in my Dell because the processor fans are near silent.

Review of the 8600GT (heatpipe cooler, £75 delivered) here http://www.xsreviews.co.uk/reviews/graphics-cards/msi-8600gt/

What with it being free delivery and £10 off, looks a nice buy to me for those after silence yet half decent power.

Holy Smoke! Look at the size of that heatsink!!

Thanks for the very useful info jah128 (rep given)! I wonder if it will fit in the Dell E520 PC going cheap at the moment? :?
#10
Good point koma toes, its a huge heatsink and its on the opposite side to normal (the bulk of the heatsink is on the CPU side of the motherboard). Not sure if it will fit in the Dells - I think they have a pretty big cover for the CPU heatsink that might need modifying.

@ jah128 - Great post, very informative. I think there is a 7600GS with my name on it heading this way soon. Thanks again.

wow... thats a massive heatsink.

ive just purchased myself the 7600gt for the e520. Voted hot.

Is that the POV one with a fan andy1984uk? Some of the reviews on ebuyer mention the noise. I'd rather pay a bit more for a quiet one myself... ;-)

If anyone comes across a passively cooled 7600GT, that's not silly money, I'd be very interested! :thumbsup:
#14
Thanks for the info jah128, my only concern is that heatsink being too near the ram (ie on top of it!) but a nice card and DX10 too!
#15

On the 520 the heatsink will be nowhere near the ram, which is at the top of the mobo between the power supply and the CPU cooler assembly.
The big issue might be that on a Dell E520 this passive cooler will sit very close to covering access to one of your PCI slots, so you might only have one free. Also because it is on the BOTTOM of the card on the E520 there will be no airflow over the cooler fins, and it could get very hot.

Im planning on getting an Asus P5B board, and i think the ram will be nearer....

Yeah I think with the E520 youd be okay though, as long as you say, the PCI slot next to the PCIX isnt occupied. :thinking:
#18
Most heatpipe cooled passive cards I've seen generally design the heatsinks to so they will sit clear of normal height ram. I have a passive 1650 which has a similar design, albeit thinner heatsink, and that sits such that I have to remove the card to access the inner bank of ram but it still fits in fine - thats with Corsair XMS, but if you have huge heatsinks on your ram you'll probably have a problem.

That said the heatsink on that particular card (MSI 8600) looks like its at a crazy angle and causes problems in that review. Bit of a pity if thats the case as it looks a really good deal for HTPC builders (and other silent system builders).

Not a chance! The Dell PC's will not take any double height cards. Its a squeeze to get a single height one in.

I have the 7600GT (POV) and it is very quiet but not quite silent. Suits me as its difficult to see whether the PC is on or not going by the front LEDs.
#20
A 7600GT is generally a good choice for upgrading a Dell - I know I have done the same.
#21
csiman - its not really a double height card in the conventional sense as the heatsink is on the opposite side to normal - still a single height heatsink on that normal side. That said, I think you are right, it would have problems in the Dell but due to the CPU cooler etc.

Think for the Dell owners (at this moment) 7600GS is the way to go if you want silence and occasional gaming, or the 7600GT for the gamers who can put up with a fan. Remember the faster the card the hotter it runs and the larger the cooling solution will need to be, so you have to compromise somewhere!
#22
Ok I'm ready to click buy buy but have confused myself with these 2 offerings

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/110045

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/125943

I can't see a difference! so would have to flip a coin to choose! Am I missing something? It will be an upgrade for the Dell E520 so quietness is all important. Thanks for your opinions in advance.
#23
The cards are by different manufacturers, the Leadtek card has faster memory - probably well worth the extra £1
#24
Has this card gone up in price slighlty?
i make it to be £59.64 after GC
#25
Yep, it has, it was on at a sale price last week.
#26
Has anyone had any problems installing these in the Dimension E520.

I have just installed the POV 7600GT in the E520, Changed the bios setting from auto to use pep when installed. Rebooted and for about 30 seconds the screen displays as normal then begins to display lines and distorts the picture before going blank. The screen then displays digital input message but no picture. Is there any part of the setup that i have messed up or would it look like the card is faulty. I was using the onboard graphics prior to this so is there anything i should have done to uninstall this prior to adding the new card?

Any help greatly recieved

Remove the onboard gfx drivers from Add/Remove programs in control panel, then reboot and try to disable the onboard gfx setting in the BIOS screen.
It should then see your new gfx card and install default drivers for it, get online and download the latest drivers from nVidia website. :thumbsup:

Thanks

Just tried that but the card still acts in the same way. Gonna have to RMA it back to ebuyer for a replacement.

Thanks for the advice

Yup - definitely sounds like a duff card to me. If it was drivers or BIOS settings I would expect it to either work or not work, rather than have failings like that. Sounds like the card might be overheating (runs for a short while, then gives distortions, then shuts down). Have you knocked the fan off the card at all?
#30
It could possibly be a power issue, but I think you have done the right thing RMAing it.
#31
Same has happened to me. I searched the net and someone else had the same problem.. Once they upgraded their psu it solved the problem.

The 7600GT might be fine for 1 cd drive and 1hdd but anyhing more and the card doesnt get enough power.. When i get a new psu on tuesday i'll update you and let you know the outcome.
#32
Bear in mind the standard Dell PSU is 305W which is pretty low, I think the PSU could be the problem.
#33
Just a quick thought....might Vista be the problem...as in not supporting the gfx card?

sorry to hear your bother :/

I went to the nvidia website and it says it supports vista. The driver disc also comes with vista specific drivers.

Its definately the psu.

okie doke :?
#36
Yeah, up to £59.64 now... want to expire or update it?
#37
i've clicked expired - still not a bad price but the special offer has ended.

Had exactly the same problem, I tried it in my other machine (an older dell 5150 with Nvidia drivers already installed and running XP Home) still the same problem.

Requested a RMA from ebuyer...

Bear in mind the standard Dell PSU is 305W which is pretty low, I think the PSU could be the problem.


On the box the card says it only needs 300W so the 305W should be fine bearing in mind the low power requirements of the CPU...

Sorry to jump in, reading the above posts am I correct in thinking that this card isn't suitable for the E520s? I ordered one last week and was going to get this card for it. Is there another similar priced alternative? Thanks

This card should be perfectly suited to the E520. I have a 7600GT in my 5150 (same PC, older model) and it has never given me problems. Sounds to me like the posters have got dodgy cards, rather than PCs.
