    Hellloo,
    Would a 512 video card fit into a Inspirion 531?
    The power supply 300.
    It has a PCIexpress x16.

    Im not too sure what the motherboard is.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the post! Though my reply is rather late, here is a card that will work with your dell and is PCIexpress x16 supported.


    Product: CHAINTECH GSV86GT 512MB GeForce 8600GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported

    Regards,

    Basically yes except the power supply sounds low. Most require at least 350 watt so you may have to upgrade that as well, but it isn't a bad idea to do anyway.
