    Graphics Cards

    Hi,

    I'm in need of a graphics card for a Dell Optiplex GX520. It's the small form factor model. (Also don't want to spend much)

    Unfortunately it doesn't support AGP or PCI-E x16, so the card will need to be PCI.

    I found the following and was wondering if they would work, and if so which is the better card. Also would I be able to put it across the two PCI slots and have a dual-monitor setup?

    PowerColor HD 2400Pro 256MB DDR2 64bit DVI VGA Out PCI Graphics Card - Ebuyer
    PNY Verto GeForce6 6200 256MB DDR DVI VGA PCI Graphics Card - Ebuyer

    Cheers

    Looking at the specs i think the first one is the better card. Look at the clcok speed. Card one has 525Mhz and the second has only has 300Mhz.

    The above would be correct - although neither is ideal for that particular system/setup, yeah the ATI would be the better bet. And even more so if as you say youd like multimonitor - thats not something that nVidia is good at, at least not without buying 3rd party software.
