Old Dell e210882 A00 Compatible with Gtx 1050?

Just got my old computer back from a friend, and am wanting to get it going as a server for a website, or maybe just to use it to connect players together for a little game I'll be making in the future.

My friend took the graphics card out of it, which was a 1gb Nvidia card, cant remember which kind.

Question is though, is it compatible with a GTX1050? All the info I can find on it just mention the kind of CPU it can use, which is an LGA775. I can't turn it on to check because it has nothing to plug a monitor into. It has a 4 core 3.6ghz CPU in it, so even though its like 15 years old it has to be ok for what I want to use it for, right?

If a GTX 1050 won't work, will this?

  1. you don't need a 1050 to run a sever, get a GT720 and run your web server from it, save you money for your Raid drive instead of wasting it on a graphics cards that the server will never have a need for to run as a web site.

  2. A 1050 is only $50 more dollars then a 720 though? And I know for a regular web server I don't need it, that's why if it isn't compatible I'll probably go with the one I posted.
    I make games but the website I have isn't really setup for hosting, I'm sharing a server so I thought if I get a 1050 I can atleast host my games without having to build a server console. Then I can literally just run an instance of the game.
    Thanks for responding though, I do appreciate your input.

  3. only way to know if it will work is to try it LGA775 motherboard depends on whom/when it was made, some will not work because the video card need uefi and most 775 do not support UEFI , only Bios. this said I am unaware the 750ti requires uefi to be functional, hardware wise, the 775 slots should be at least pcie x16 so that should not be a concern.

    Ok thanks, I'll try to look into seeing if it supports UEFI.
