best bet would be to stick it in a computer and use a program to see what it is ( GPUz or something similar )

It's from a dell, it looks like it is a half height AGP job used in the optiplex small form factor comps like the GTX260.

I think you mean GX 260


ATI AGP card with a passive cooler on it...

Btw, why are you selling that lousy card for $65

correct-a-mundo not my listing upon ebay, I dremeled off the part that was preventing it from fitting, no worries it wasn't anything important, it fits now but i realized i left the cable converter thing elsewhere, so ill pick it up tomorrow and let you know what happens.

EDIT: thats no AGP card either, as Philbar said.

Ok Update: I got the card in, I have the converter cable from DVS-59 to VGA, and now its all hooked up. I ran GPU-Z as suggested, but when it starts it just says "Unknown architecture". So I still don't know what card it is to download the drivers for it.
