Hey all, I have changed my mind and am now going to get a CHAINTECH Geforce FX 5200 128-BIT 128MB PCI card. Anyone know if this will work on a Dell Dimension 4500S please? Thanks.

If you have an open PCI Slot it will work.

Actually no, I'm going for the POWERCOLOR 9250 128-BIT but please help me I cannot find this card with just 128MB of VRAM. I read that having 256MB on a PCI card can bog it down. I don't wan't any bogging down. Please, thank you for any replies.

what you may have heard of is the deliberate "bogging down" of some 256mb cards
