Default vidio card upgrade

I am looking to upgrade my video card.

I have seen this card and would like to know if it is reasonable for gaming.
Also I dont know much about mob, will it be compatible with mine as long as it is pci-e?

any help will be apreciated.

THANKYOU

well... First, tell us your budget. Then post your system specs. I could recommend a 8800GTX or a 6200... We need to know your budget before we can pick a good card for you

Thats a decent card, you may just need to upgrade the drivers. If you still want to upgrade, then a 7600gt would be up your alley.

Odds are that your power supply is barely keeping up with your card. What model Dell do you have?
