Memory upgrades made easy with Crucial System Scanner. Also Graphics is checked:
I recently bought a used Dell Optiplex GX260 (intel P4 2.8GHz, 1gb ram) and I am running Win XP SP2. The oem graphics card, which I believe is a ATI Rage Pro Furry 32mb (PCI Express), just is not going to cut it. I just bought a dell 2007wfp widescreen monitor that I want to use for some publishing and graph design and the current graphics card does not support the widescreen's optimal resolution of 1680x1050.
I commonly use Microsoft Office, Adobe CS2, and hopefully some video editing in the future. Due to this, I would like to take advantage of monitor's ability to rotate into portrait mode, but I am not currently able to rotate the orientation of XP on the screen.
I have heard upgrading the graphics card can be a solution to both issues. Can someone please lend me some advice on what graphics card might be best for me, or what my options are?
