Title shows PCI-E but spec shows AGP. Which is this card? Thanks

I have corrected the specs above, i can confirm that it uses PCI Express x16 bus interface.

Yes it will be fine and it will play most new games depending on the specifications of your computer.

Nice find PCTech!

If you can't make it to PC World you can get a PowerColour branded X1650 Pro from ebuyer for 23.20, free shipping with order over 50 quid.

Leicester and Northampton have stock

How would this compare against an nvidia geforce 7900gs 256mb?I'm really not in the loop about this sorta stuff :-(

Yeah, what card would it compare to on the nvidia side? (I've only had nvidia cards and am looking to upgrade from my 7600GS, if only to get a fully solid frame rate on TF2).

bagged one, rep left, free game da vinci code seems to be bundled too

Reserved one in Wakefield, will pop up on the train tomorrow and collect it.

As I have nothing better to do on a Sunday :-D

So its the same card, diffrent brand?

Be careful with what you get given when you collect ~ I've just checked mine & was given the X1650 & not the pro version ~ It's going back tomorrow

Afraid not, since ]your board has an AGP slot rather than a PCI-E one, as far as I can make out.

This wouldn't be much of an upgrade for you. Looking at benchmarks on ]tomshardwareguide, you would get only a couple of extra frames/sec from this card. It is a very basic card. It wont play anything demanding like Crysis or Oblivion, fine for things like The Sims though. The card is somewhere between a 7600GS and a 7600GT.

A quick google of that board tells me it has an AGP video card slot, not PCI-E, so this card would not fit.

Sorry if this is a silly question, but how do I know if this will fit an old Celeron Dimension 3000 (or a 2400).
I dont know what shoudl I search for to find out, an explanation for the experts wouldbe great!
Thanks

Except that benchmarks at about half the speed of the 1650...

If you are really going to throw the boat out then try the 3650

Cats and Racks :-D BTW this graphics card won't fit your system...your best optoin is to upgrade the motherboard 1st... ...
"Graphics are definitely the weak spot for the Dimension 3000 as it is for most budget systems. It uses the Intel Extreme 2 integrated graphics which has very limited 3D capabilities. To make matters worse, the system lacks and AGP or PCI-E slot for a graphics upgrade"

You are better off sticking with the 7900GS.

I noticed that they charged me for extra cables I didn't buy so got a card refund within 10mins, now back home sat in front of pc reading this thread, look across to the graphic card box only to discover mine is the standard X1650 version so heres me thinking I have to go all the way back to the "very stressful" place only can't find the reciept - thinking back when I was in the shop the lad gave me the reciept for the refund but not the original reciept that the graphics card was on so I can't take it back tomorrow. So I will have to learn from all my mistakes today:

1 check product matches what I reserved before paying
2 make sure before leaving store counter I have all reciepts in wallet.
3 do I really need to save a few pounds on the product to experiment a very stressful time to buy my products.
4 do I really want staff to treat me like I'm not there when I want to buy/ask for advise when they go off saying I will be right there or I will get someone to help you right away.

Oh and someone said they were told that staff can't purchase sale/clearance products it might be just that store policy cos today the one I went into today I actually witnessed staff serving/selling to other staff, one, two and three of the same product and openingly admitting that they are going to resell it for profit. Plus staff family members were there buying up stuff and at the counter were overriding system with lower prices plus staff discount.

Oh and about the reservation system it really needs work. Well atleast one correct item that I reserved was actually there next to the counter waiting for me but others who came in whilst I was there were told sorry stocking system was wrong we don't have any. One women reserved an Apple Ipod I think and was told none in this store so we reserved something similar for you, one of those old under a gb usb music players. I couldn't believe what I heard or actually seen today and I was only in the store for no more than 20mins.

I don't know what it is but Pcworld always stresses me out. I walk in fine and when I come out I'm like a bag of nerves - whole body shaking.

Dunno why this is expired... I just did a collect and reserve on it...

How does this compare to a X1300 Pro? Will it work in a Dell Vostro 200 desktop with its 300w PSU?

Toybhoy, this card is a lot better than a X1300 Pro and it will fit into your Dell Vostro 200 fine.
Not sure about 300w PSU becuase that depends on the other components you use.. personally id try it becuase it'll will probably be fine. And if not, a more powerfull PSU is well overdue and doesn't cost a lot(£20-£30).

Banned

I have one reserved in Northampton but now won't be able to collect it. If anyone wants it please PM me and I'll send you the reservation e-mail.

Yep.
Although as RedSkywalker pointed out...you might be better off with th 8400GS for a couple quid more.

It's tough at the price range as a difference of 10-15 quid can make a big difference, yet if you only plan on spending £20 then £10 more is a 50% increase.

Best bet is to google benchmark comparisons and weigh up whether you want to pay more or not.
