Graphics cards again

  Woody 1 22:38 11 Jan 06

I'm new to gaming/graphics cards and recently bought Call of Duty 2 only to find out that I need to buy a graphics in order to play it. I have a Dell Dim 2400 (Pentium 3.06GHz & 512MB of Ram) which has PCI ports. I can't seem to find a decent enough PCI graphics card that will work with the game. All the latest Radeon graphics cards are either AGP or PCI Express.

Can anyone recommend an appropriate PCI (not Express) graphics card?

According to the specs, the game requires the following system specifications:

Minimum Requirements

1.4GHz Processor (Celeron/Duron), 512 MB RAM and ATi Radeon 9200/GeForce4

Optimum Requirements

2.5GHz Processor (Athlon XP/Pentium 4), 1GB RAM and ATi Radeon 9800XT/GeForce FX 5900.

The PCI bus is too slow for any decent graphics cards to benefit from. Is your Dell PC a slimline one? I had the exact same problem a few years ago. The best solution is to buy a new motherboard (which will probably mean a new case too) that has a PCI-Express slot although it is costly for what you want to do.

New power supply too, the Dell ones have different pin-outs to standard ATX PSU's.
