Hi guys, I'm looking for a video memory enhancement card for Dell Optiplex GXa. The mainboard has already 2MB installed, but I found it a bit too small and thus I'm looking for the expansion. Does anybody has any serial numbers or even want to sell/trade such card?

There are some labels on the slot:

3.3 V
PPA GF-30

The card capacity is 2MB, so I would have 4 MB total and the 3D Rage chip would work great with up to 1280x1024 resolution at 24 bits.

Best regards.

I think so.
Actually I just bought this module https://www.ebay.pl/itm/Samsung-KMM966G256BQN … ns/282075710535
I will let you know once I'll get the package.

a bit too late, but I wanna warn you to use in these Optiplex'es (GXa/GX1/GX1P) one-side modules only (2 memory chips one upper side, and none on another).
Modules for Matrox cards (maybe others too) have 4 chips - 2 on each side. these modules cannot be inserted to the slot because the slot is mounted over 2 memory chips soldered on the board and the slot isn't "thick" enough.
two-sided module just cannot be pushed down to the click.
Hope that you bought single sided module.
