Old C640 + New 128 MB ATI Radeon Mobility 9000
Posted 08 October 2006 - 12:20 AM
I have a 4 year old C640 with a 32MB ATI M7 video card. Plainly stated this cards sucks. I have talked to a dell representative and he informed me that my C640 MBD should be able to accept up to 128 MB of Video Memory. Therefore I was wondering if it's at all possible to sodder on the ATI M9 into its place. Has anyone had any experience with this?

About your only chance of running a half-decent graphics card with a C640 is to get a Dell C-Dock 2 and a compatible PCI card and boot from the Dock graphics to an external monitor.
I use a PCI FX5200 128Mb with my Inspiron 4100 (modded to C610 spec.) and C-Dock 2. Runs Far Cry reasonably well.
