Well you need to find out what slots it has inside for expansion .
Then look at this

If you have any doubts just post a picture up

Then once you know what it is if its an agp you need to know the speed so download something like everest or pc wizard and that should tell you but dont quote me on that .

It is AGP, you can just google it. Most Dells that are not XPS are AGP slots, and the Optiplex gx260 is AGP, I just checked.

with a AGP slot the best card you could really get would be a 6800. they are pretty nice, and as fast as you can get without having the agp being a major bottleneck.

Que? Why 6800? That is not the 'best' at all.

This is better:

Well, that is not that good of a deal. The 7950 costs more, but doesn't give a big enough change.

I think what thelis means is the 6800 is a hell of a lot better value for the money, as
price : performance ratios go, the 6800 is a better choice unless there was a real reason to justify the extra expense for a 7950.
