PCI Question...

Recommended Posts

Ok, Ive finally saved up enough to fix the Dell I broke a while back. The processor will be a Celeron D 2.6GHZ, a 1GB stick of PC2700 ram, and am thinking of getting a geforce 6600 for it...Specs for it can be found here:http://www.buyxg.com/store/item.asp?key=VC-135-216

It says "BUS PCI-e x 16", to my understanding that is the PCI speed, I was wondering if that meant my pc would have to be "BUS PCI-e x 16"...Ive tried to find out what my "pci speed" is on my Dell but I cant seem to find it anywhere, would that be compatible with the Dell Dimension 2400 that I have?

 

Thanks alot,

Supaflies

 

BTW:If your curious about my other products that I will be buying, you can find the ram here:http://www.digi4me.com/product.php?productid=462

And the Processor here:http://www.starmicro.net/detail.aspx?ID=48

 

Thanks

PCI-E is PCI Express. In terms of graphics from lowest to highest it goes as follows. PCI, AGP, PCI-Express.

Only new-computers have PCI-E (PCI Express) which is becoming the new standard and taking over AGP and PCI (ISA is already dead long ago).

 

Celeron is a CPU (Central Processing Unit) from Intel that is a low-cost budget processor. Pentium is their good processor.

 

But if you ask me, then AMD makes both faster and cheaper processors than Intel. ;)

Sorry, didnt pay attention to the thread date.

I rarerly do, I am used to fast forums where threads dont stay on the first page for more than a few hours. ;)

 

I like how you refer me to a "thread necromancer", it surerly does got a nice clang to it. ;)
