wtf is half height video card..i really think htere is nothing called that, please explain..there is PCI(Lowest quality gpu's) AGP(Medium Quality GPU's) PCI-E(Best Quality GPU's) Those are the slots you can put them in..most likely you have a pci-e or an AGP for a gpu..please explain.

He must have the GX280 small form factor. You will have trouble finding a card that will fit. If you call dell or check out there website...they can let you know of one that will work.
