hes right, i do have a friend who upgraded his dell mobo tho. it didnt take him that long, but it took him a while to get one that work. i recommend just building a new system later. its not worth the trouble of getting a new board.

Oh I see. I'm such a retard.
That one does look promising. As for the requirements:
"available PCI 2.0 slot"

Does my PC have that?

It's still a pain trying to figure out what card will "fit" since I'm really not familiar with any of this.
