Switching out graphics cards

Recommended Posts

@ dlewis.. what are you talking about?

Pulling the graphics card shouldnt be an issue.. just make sure that you uninstall the hardware and drivers before you remove it.. Also make sure that you still have video.. very few dell have dedicated graphics... so my guess is that you installed this card on this machine?  As long as you have an AGP, PCI, or PCI-E slot open you can put it into what ever computer you would want.

Adding ram is really easy to do.. I would suggest crucial or kingston for their memory search feature.  Figure out what you need.. then watch bestbuy, circuitcity, or some other local retailer for when the memory is on special. 

As far as hard drives go.. another easy thing to do.  Master/Slave was for back in the day pretty much.. Now you have cable select which makes it a whole lot easier!  Just put the hard drive in, connect the cable, check the jumper setting on the other drive and you should be good to go.
