Default Xfx GeForce 6600GT PCI-E 128MB

The 6600GT is the graphics card that I want, but I'm not sure if my Dell dimension 2400 (lowend PC) could take it. Do you think it would run smooth if i bought this card or would I have to upgrade other components first so it runs properly?

Well firstly we'll need to know the specifications of this computer of yours.

Secondly XFX isn't the best brand, you'd be better off with eVGA or Leadtek.

If you don't have an AGP slot, and I doubt you have a PCI-E slot, you probably have a regular PCI slot :-\
