Looking for a decent spec' graphics card that will fit the Vostro 200 and not require the power supply to be changed. It needs to have suppport for open GL graphics (whatever that is). Hoping to spend less than £70.

Happy New Year !!!

open gl is/was the standard for 3d rendering outside of the microsoft community,
what is it you are trying to use, it is possible that there are opengl drivers for your existing graphics card so check what make/model it is and visit the manufacturers website to see.

Only have onboard at the minute. Trying to use a 3D drawing package so your exactly right. The problem is that the vostro is quite small and I think I need a small card to fit it. Also the power source isn't great either.

This supports open GL 2.0. It wont fly with games but is better than integrated and has hardware support for HD video. Oh and its cheap! £12 Delivered.

I have the same computer and after loads of research I found that the best graphics card to use on this computer without changing the 300Watt PSU is a MSI 8600GT OC Edition. (Assuming you havent added in additional optical drives and hard drives.

Anything beyond this and you will need to upgrade your PSU.

You dont need to get the MSI one specifically. Any 8600GT's are fine.

Cheapest is probably on ebay (mine was £30). You might want to create a Wanted thread in here too and see if anyone has one.

The 8600GT is a decent card. I can play most games on high details including newer ones like Left 4 Dead and Call of Duty 4
