Default Is this card compatible with my PC?

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...723244&CatId=0

^^

Is that compatible with my XPS 400?
I don't anything about PCI or anything like that..

and if the link doesn't work

it's a
ATI Radeon 9250 / 256MB DDR / PCI / VGA / Composite / TV Out / Video Card

And for example, what kind of games will that card handle?

Yep...Are you planning on using this as you gaming card??? Because if so you dont want that card. Its rubbish...I mean its PCI. Not even PCI-E or AGP. Your PC has PCI express so you want one like this, a 6600GT. Will run all games great

Yes it is compatible.
But it won't handle any new games. Maybe some 2-3 year old games will run well. Since that is quite a new computer (right?) I'd look for a pci-e card. And if u play some quite new games then get a good card. That one is like a mummy.
What vid card do u have now?

That 6600GT that nasha mentioned will be ok. It will run most new games well with good graphics settings. But if u can spare some more money get the 6800GS. It's alot better.

You're sure the 6600GT is compatible right, because I'll probably buy that one. Yes, it is a new computer.

Found that one it's a little more than the 6600GT. Is it better? Is it worth a little more? It's PCI-E so I think it would be compatible.

I want to get WoW, and be able to run it at least normal quality. That's pretty much it for now, ha ha.
