Default Need to get a video card :)

I am running a DellPoweredge 1900 model number : ECMO1

Need to upgrade video card so i can play games. I have read about other people doing this with placing a 8x -> 16x pcie or just cutting back of 8x slot to let the card fit in. Just looking for good deals on mobo powered video cards that will run new game decently if not great. Thanks.

Did i not post enough info? Tell me plz

I am confused what you are trying to do. Does it not have an x16 slot?

EDIT: Why on earth do you want to put a video card in the server? Its a server. Not a gaming computer.

I think the DellPoweredge 1900 has this mobo inside...

Intel Workstation Board S5000XVN.

And it has a PCI Express x16 slot.

So pretty much any of the latest GPU's will work with it. Your going to need to ensure that the PSU will power the GPU you go for.

this is what im looking at. no 16x

and Quote :"You could always cut out the end of one of those pcie slots to accept an 16x card. I did that in a Poweredge 2950 server that only had a 4x slot.... worked fine with the 9800GT I fit in there to fold 24/7."

WHY are you using a very expensive server for gaming?

It is not gonna run anything well anyway.
