I want to be able to get Battlefield 2 with no worries of having a bad video card. So i was wondering what will the best low profile card to play that game that would fit my Dell 4600C.
My tower is small.
And here is some pictures of what the inside looks like if that helps you guys help me determine what would be the best video card that will be able to fit.

Errr, yeah, your going to need a new case to fit anything else into that lol. In fact, i dont even see any AGP slots or PCI-E slots in the specs so you may need a new motherboard also and move everything. In my opinion at this point it would be easier to buy a new computer.

Edit: im not sure if a PCI card would handle the load but its worth a little research.

PCI Cards

maybe you can stuff one of the little pint sized ones in there. but if you take this route dont blame me if it doesnt work. lol.

Not sure if PCI can handle the load?! What are you talking about? PCI video cards cant do anything! lol

I'd suggest a 6600GT. Best value card in the market.

Nope he is gonna need to get a new mobo case 4 sure. I think the minimum videocard is a Geforce FX 5700.

5700 still sucks. 6600GT is the best card to get if you're low on cash. If you can a decent system combination, you can set all the settings to med-hi

right, you would need to get a new motherboard and case and transfer all your parts over to that. Then you could get a new videocard

Don't Dells also have PSU's that only work with the default parts? (or at least the motherboard) If that's the case, you would need a new power supply too, and you can get a good one for only $50.

Why did you get a business PC in the first place anyway?

All you need is new motherboard and graphics. the case is really cheap. If you want a cheap case that does the job, (but will have no gurantee that you have no cuts or blisters) you can get one for under $35-45 US dollars.

or you could run the PC entirely of nothing

although you could probably find a barebones rig for cheap that would have support for your CPU and RAM, they usually come with Power supply motherboard, case, sometimes CPU, and sometimes optical drives
