    I have a Dell XPS 420, Core Quad, Q6600 @ 2.40GHz and 3GB RAM running XP SP3. Power Supply is 375W. Current video card is an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro. I'd like to upgrade the card for video/slideshow and photo editing. Programs I'll be using are Proshow Producer and Photoshop Elements 9. Can my computer handle this PCI-E 2.0 card or something similar? I want at least 1GB RAM and DDR3. No one at Dell will answer this questions without charging me for tech support :eek:
    Thanks,
    Monica
