Hello everybody, good night.
 
Currently I use a desktop computer (literally desktop format, not is tower, the monitor is above), that don't have space for a standard VGA. Someone know some VGA that fits in this desktop?
 
Everything works perfectly, except the integrated video graphics in CPU.

 

My desktop: Dell Optiplex 790 DT (size: 14,17 x 4,02 x 16,14):

Thanks a lot!

Lejenk, thanks.
 
But, my problem is that my desktop only have 4 inches of space available. The default VGA is around 7 inches.

 

Hi,

 

Looking at the case, do a search for PCI-e graphic cards. Based on your signature, i would say the Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT, to start with, it's cheap, (If still available) but enough for testing.

 

Best of luck.

You should have mentioned that before :P

I have no idea, doesn't Dell offer any upgrades? You could contact them, ask what they would install, overpriced ofcourse, and buy that card online or something. 

Sorry i can't help. 

 

Best of luck.

Only found the 7200GS, but it was defective. Freezes on OSX and Windows. Then later I got a 7300GS which worked perfectly on Snow Leopard.

 

As my goal is to install the Mountain Lion, it was not compatible with it, it does not have drivers for NVDANV40Hal.kext ML.

 

Today I will buy this MSI N210-MD1G/D3. I know it will work in Mountain Lion. My concern is whether it will be compatible in the future, because the 7xxx series was discontinued.

I guess it should be. With 10.9 at least. GMA950 is not compatible with anything above 10.6.8 but still some people managed to make it work in ML. So there is a hope :)

 

As for 7xxx you could try searching eBay. Most likely there are some options.

Good news! 

 

I bought a GT 210 (MSI N210-MD1G/D3). Worked perfectly in Mountain Lion.

I will soon post an installation guide of the Mountain Lion in this desktop (Dell Optiplex 790).

 

Thanks for the support!
