use either because I know what I put in computers that I make.

Tried using them helping Mandy in Newbies and like most of these they are incorrect just enough to lead one astray. Drove us nuts re the mobo they reported. It didn't resemble the actual mobo.

Think that I'll stop telling people to use them.

for a video card. All this info is provided by simply going to the Dell site and search for your computer model number. []
