Hello all !

i own for 38€ a dell optiflex 780 dual core with theses specs:
https://icecat.us/prefere/us/p/dell/780sff-e7400-as/optiplex-pcs-workstations-780-28461065.html

Do you think i could make icaros work on it ?

I speak about the ethernet card, i still have a 8319 pci for but i don't know if i can put it in.

Thanx a lot

yes man icaros works fine on this pc, It would also be great if you take a compatible graphic card I have a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 and it works very well

Hello @salvo and thanx a lot for your answer.

Ok i go see for the installation. the fact is i do not know what to think about the network card, i have a 8139 one but it s too long for the case, i have to find another short one for.

Have a gr33t day !

The network card and the graphics card must be low profile you can buy them on eBay

the fact is the pc case is slim, my 8139 ethernet cart is too long for. so well i go see on the net for.

I how a 9200 vidéo card but with same problem, so then perhaps better find another dinocomputer for ^^

For 50€ i can get one for.
