Dell's XPS one

So you must have the 24in one then Hoak? if you have 64bit software?

I've been looking at the ATI Radeon HD 3650 and the Nvidia 9600M GT (Green PCB) and both of them seem to NOT have the gap on the large pin out areas, which makes you think they might work. Drivers being the only question, and dell has drivers for the 9600 and maybe the normal drivers from the ATI/nVidia websites might work?

Hi, I have the 20" version and do not use 64 bit software. I tried ATI HD3650 (without a gap at the interface) -> still not working. I think Dell has a proprietary MXM slot in the XPS One such that only Dell cards will work. Oh well, I think I'm stuck with the integrated graphic or trying to sell it to get some games going.

To Guest_Hoak,

For whatever its worth; I did UPGRADE the Vista Ultimate to 64 Bit; and I DIDNOT use the Dell Video drivers, mainly because they were built for the 32bit XPS One. I used ATI's 64 Bit drivers, I did not load the Catalyst software, mainly because I did not need it.

So far so good... ; give me holler if you have any questions...

any news on this? I have an XPS one A2010 (20") and installed the 9600m to a black screen... though windows boots. Any workaround? DO i need a new BIOS version or something?

Not really, DELL modified the vbios of the ATI card to work with the XPS, the slot is a standard one. However the system BIOS is missing any mxm structure, this is inside the vbios and because of this is the card working and any other not. To make it work you have it add the mxm structure inside the bios, modify the DSDT table and Intel QST to ale everything work :) iam running an xeon E5450 ( you need to add the microcode and use the only stepping of the CPU), windows 10 and a nvidia 9600m gt 512MB DDR3 there :)
