no a 6200 is even worse than a 7300
they are both low end. but the 7300 is atleast a newer generation.

Nvidia doesnt actually sell the card to you.

They sell the 7900GS chip to different companies, and then they produce cards with it.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130056

That would be my choice if I were buying a 7900GS

Had that card you are planning to buy. It was great (Doesnt work anymore due to human error). The only thing you can overclock 100% will be your video card which will only get you a couple more fps. If a software overclocking program like clockgen works for your chipset, you could overclock your cpu and ram. Since the ram and cpu run 1:1, the ram Dell uses is generally crap, and their cooling isnt the best, you wont get very far.

Lesson learned here, never buy a Dell if "getting the most out of your computer" is what you plan to do.

Lol, your right probably..

It's 1 gig of DC RAM, I believe at 533 MHz??

If I really wanted to, I could put in a new fan, and OC my CPU, but I don't have any money atm after buying this thing...

You could oc your cpu but like I said its 1:1. My friend has a dell with some ddr2 533 and that stick of ram has horrid timings.

sell some crap on ebay to add money to you $100 and buy the radeon x1950 like he said above, it will rape the 7900gs. How old are you?You sound young, sell your sports cards, magic cards, whatever ya got lol. You would be amazed at what you could sell on ebay. I bet that if you advertised an old dirty pair of boxers on there,, some freak would buy them,, and bam, you got 10 bucks lol
