Hey I have that same Dell, but what I did with mine is I slapped an nvidia 6800 in it. I love the look of you're PC better though, because mine only has 2 GB of RAM and is horrid at video games.

How do you like the 730? I was planning on using the 4GB version for a budget build for my friend.

Wow, just wow. Nice PC, but you might want to up your CPU to a 3GHz Core 2 Quad or something. I also recommend getting an SSD with a mounting bracket.

Honestly, what a build. For an Optiplex 380, I like 4-core CPUs and an entry-level GeForce GT 1030. If you sell your GT 730 and save up some money you can buy a GT 1030. Or Better yet, buy a GTX 1050. It has 3 Video Outputs (DP, HDMI, DVI) but nice build, man.

I'm honestly surprised how you can find the graphics card of any good value. Infact, I'd say they have terrible value. The GTX 650 can't be .. what .. $50 more, but is something like 5x the performance.

I mean ... if you're happy, who am I to burst your bubble?
