A buddy of mine is wanting to upgrade his video card for his 3 year old Dell. Since he's in another state, it's hard for me to provide a good upgrade option since I have no idea what the power supply can handle, case dimensions, etc. I do know that he's currently using a Radeon HD 4350, but other than that, I'm clueless. His budget is up to $300, but I doubt a card of that price will be necessary. The computer is primarily be used for web surfing, word processing, videos, etc. I'm pretty sure that if he could, he would play a few games here and there, but it is not a necessity. Any help would be appreciated.
Heavy is good, heavy is reliable. If it doesn't work, you can always hit them with it.
