    You will need a low profile Video Card for the desktop computer unless you get the GPU riser.

    2 slot wide cards will probably be an issue also.

    I chose the 1GB 64 bit card because it's a better match for your 4GB system, and it's the newer faster version than the 128 bit 2 GB card.

    With a 64 bit OS you should definitely move up to at least 6GB RAM. Preferably 8GB.
    I know this stretches your budget a bit but it's pretty much the minimum upgrade that I would recommend.
    Be sure and boot into safe Mode (F8) and remove the old GPU drivers. Then install the new GPU and drivers there also.
    A budget build for that would be Q9550 ($20), 8GB DDR2-800 low density x64 RAM.
    The GT730 will work well at 720P resolution.
    The Dell manual on page 79 lists a 25W PCIe 16x slot limit. Many people exceed that without problems but you should be aware that it does exist.
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gpu-hierarchy,4388.html
    It should be stenciled on the MB next to the GPU slot. So there is some risk to doing this.
    The Mini Tower version would be a much better choice.
  2. I'm having a hard time finding a lot of examples of 755 DT with faster GPUs. My comment was based on a user at Overclock.net who runs a GTX750Ti in an Optiplex 755 SFF for a home theater computer. Of course in that environment risking a $20 motherboard isn't considered very important. But that might not apply to your situation. GT710 might be the safe bet. But actually swapping for a better Optiplex would be my suggestion.
  3. Thank you so much! I hope you you can help me next time when I need help again
