    Hello,

    I have a Dell Optiplex GX620 and I need to buy an Add-On Ethernet Card.
    Can you please tell the right card to buy for this computer.

    Thanks

    This machine likely one has one PCI slot and one PCI-e slot. Presupposing neither of them are being used currently, you could purchase a PCI NIC like this example, or a PCI-e NIC like this example.

    If they are being used, a USB-Ethernet Adapter should suffice.

    The Dell OptiPlex GX620 comes in 4 different case sizes.
    Which one do you have?

    The largest of the 4 case sizes (Mini Tower) appears to be the only one that gives you the option of using either a PCI or PCI Express x1 ethernet card.
    The other 3 case sizes appear to only give you the option of using a PCI ethernet card.
