    What video card is in the computer right now?


    Dear Mark,

    OK Original card is quoted by Dell as ( K1010 CRD,GRPHC,VID,PCI,RAGE-XL ) it supports up to 1600 x 1200, but no widescreen option shown.

    This all assumes you’re happy with the rest of your computer and its performance and aren’t planning any PC replacement/major upgrade anytime soon.


    Great, thanks for your help. Sounds perfect for what I need.
