Hey all, Like many others, I cheated out on a graphics card (yes I can play things like guild wars 2, League of Legends, Hitman and others) but I was wondering if I could upgrade my graphics card for a HP pavilion 15-au-020wmRead other answers
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Current PC specs listed above ..... to get it out of the way I am a gamer......
This upgrade is to allow me to play some of the newer games such as The Witcher and also to enable me to utilize DX10 when I eventually upgrade to Vista.
RAM.....this is what I have found...I do not overclock and I am very happy with the matched pair of Corasir XMS 512MB 5400C4 running at 533 that I currently have so I figured the safe bet is in just jumping to a matched pair of 1MB sticks of the same.....
I do have a budget and from the reviews I have read this card should carry me through the gaming world for at least the next year (hopefully 2) I like eVGA and I have nothing but good things to say about the eVGA 6800GS that I am currently using.
But if anyone has some input as to problems with the card listed below or if you know of another card that will perform just as well (or better) for around the same price I would like to hear about it.
Thanks in advance for any help.......

So I have a Sapphire Radeon R9 280x, and I just bought a MSI GeForce GTX 970. I also have a 500W CoolerMaster powersupply, would I need to upgrade this to 600-750W?
+note: I also bought two sticks of HyperX 16GB RAM and a Corsair H75 Hydro Series CPU Cooler.
Your 500 watt PSU meets the minimum requirement.... GeForce GTX 970 | Specifications | GeForce
So with that in mind....I'd say yes to a new PSU.
I want to buy a new video card to replace my onboard one that came with my Asrock 775i945GZ motherboard , my first choice is a Palit ATI Radeon HD2600PRO Sonic 256MB DDR3 128-bit and i wish to know if it's compatible with my mobo , or if my pci-e slot limits the graphics card performance
Sounds very confusing because that board has an Agi Express slot but that appears to take a pci-x 16 card which you have selected.
I'm looking for some general advice around my graphics card on my rig. The rig itself is just over 3 years old now (see specs next to my name) It was a customised one and at the time I went for pretty much the best of everything that I could afford at the time. I have upgraded a couple of things, namely memory and hard-drives over the past couple of years, but I've not really needed to do much else as even by todays standards it runs games on high sometimes ultra..depending.
I'm looking at either obtaining another GTX280 (1gb) and running in SLI (I know its dated now but as previously mentioned it still runs games at high) I am bidding on a couple on ebay...as it seems I can't get them from many places now. My other option is to splash out on one of the newer GTX 680 cards... but at £370 I don't think I can justify it on the basis that I don't think it will improve my system by £370! I can probably pick up a GTX 280 for between £60 - £80 or less if i'm lucky!
What are your thoughts?

Recently i posted a thread regarding upgrading a few things on my Pc. This is a side note from that. I currently have a Gefore FX5900 Nividia card. I want to upgrade to a faster newer card with at least pixel shading 2. I know that the PCI express cards are the go. Unfortunately i dont have a mother board that supports PCI -e so i have to go for a AGP card. What is the best and fastest card i can get ? Not stressed about the money. But whats the best. 6600 was mentioned by someone. Cheers in advance.
well here is one of the best ones, but really for that price with only agp slot it's not really worth it, because you will only see so much of a good speed boost
or better prices
but how old is your system, because to play games these days you may want to just save up and consider a rebuild

I have £100 to spend if you could point me in the right direction so I can get the best for my money would be much appreciated.
Is it to play any specific game? Have you at any time upgraded your power supply? A higher end graphics card will require a power supply better then the stock HP one.
Also for any of the high end cards you will be limited by your processor.

I know this set up is old and so on but I just want to get a decent graphics card and CPU to get the WEI to all over 7.0 so i can use this as a backup.
Here is the processor support list for that motherboard:
The Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 appears to be a supported processor.
The 6670 appears to require at least a 400W power supply.
The 6770 appears to require at least a 500W power supply.

Not without replacing the motherboard. I think there is a version with a 950MX, but the cost of replacing the motherboard for that modest upgrade would not make sense. The video is not a "card" as we understand it on a desktop. Soldered right into the motherboard.Read other 1 answers

I assembled my PC in mid 2010 and it's still runs OK for my purposes except that I feel that Firefox and other programs that I use feel somehow sluggish and I attribute this to the naive graphics card I'm using (AMD RADEON HD 5450) even with the latest Catalyst drivers. I picked this up on purpose because it has no fan (I'm not a gamer anyway).
Now that it's 2014, I'm asking a recommendation for a more powerful graphics card that uses no fan at all in order to enjoy more powerful graphics in Firefox, youtube, flash, photoshop,...etc without adding any extra noise.
Thanks in advance.
I sort of doubt that it is your sluggish problem especially with Firefox. That could be due to your internet connection.
What size hard drive and is it close to being full? Do you defrag it periodically?
With that said, check out the Zotac NVIDIA GeForce GT730 4GB.
I have a XPS/Dimension XPS Gen 2. The graphic card it came with crapped on on me 6 months after my warranty expired, a friend let me borrow his generic card just to use on a temp basis. What can I upgrade to. I believe i only have an agp connection and i was referred a card that uses pci express, i assume it wont work. What can i do?
Just off the bat, I took a look to see what they have at www.tigerdirect.com. Click on Video Cards on the left side menu column, then select the submenu AGP cards. There are 40 cards to choose from. You'll have fun looking at the selection. Check to see that it is compatible with your processor. I would also see what kind of selection they have at www.directron.com. Those are my favorite two online stores for getting computer parts.
I'm trying to upgrade to a Radeon RX 480 card. I've upgraded the PSU to a 600 W Corsair. I've been running a XFX Radeon 6950 with no issues. I've had the 480 working in another machine so I know the card is fine. I'm wondering if the 480 is even compatible with the motherboard. I can't find information on its compatibility.
@ArcFlashAvoider, welcome to the forum. I believe that your problem is caused by the fact that the RX 480 requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a Legacy/standard BIOS. HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012. The BIOS can't be upgraded to UEFI. I suggest that you contact the manufacturer's Tech Support to see if they can help you with a VBIOS update for the card that will allow it to work with UEFI.

*sorry for the english
yep, you can run a agp 8x in a agp 4x slot as long as the card says its backwards compatible
altho, with that huge bottleneck, i dont think its worth getting the 3850
my last system had a agp 4x slot, couldnt tell a difference at all when i upgraded my nvidia 5200 to a much better agp card.
save a couple of bucks and try the 3650 agp card, it also supports 4x/8x agp

2600 doesnt look too bad either, bout the same price as card above
I've been wanting to upgrade my graphics card for a while now, and while reading online on the best upgrade from a GTX 285 the GTX 570 would be the best route I would take. I want something that's worth the upgrade from my 285 as I play all the newest games and I would like stable FPS in games like Bad Company 2.
I'm really interested to know how much gain in performance I would get from upgrading from my 285 to this card MSI GeForce GTX 570 OC Twin FrozR III Power Edition 1280MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card [N570GTXTWINFROZRIIIPOWEREDITION/OC]
I would appreciate any advice given to me regarding this upgrade and if my system components are capable.
My current power supply: Eclipse Computers - Product Details (I know its a cheap brand but my friend recommended it to me back in the day so I got it...)
800w will be sufficient.
If you'd like to save some money, I'd suggest the 560Ti, it -rivals- the 570 but still lacks just a little (from a scale of 10, it'd be 7/10 against 8/10)
Really depends if your wallet is stuffed with bills
If you run a 1920x1080 monitor or any dual-triple, then the extra VRAM would do nice- that's if you go dual SLi or triple.
i currently have intel hd graphics ... whch is not up to my mark! and wanna upgrade from 4 GB ddr3l sdram to 8 GB... so please help me with this details... and if iam eligible ... thnak u ...am new to HP.
@Sharon_Paulson?No worries. The current Intel graphics solution is part of the Intel Pentium CPU. (SoC system on a chip) Your notebook is an entry level(Pentium, not Intel Core i3 - i7 series) one without discrete graphics. If you had a unit with higher specs, perhaps even switchable graphics, then upgrading would not be so much of an issue. As it stands now, you can upgrade the memory, but not the graphics solution.Read other 10 answers

@Cephachrome, welcome to the forum. There are several things that you have to consider when buying a video card: 1) length of the card. Will it fit into the space, 2) power required to run it properly and 3) does it require supplemental power adapters? Either of the video cards in the links provided will require you to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU), also. The PSU in the computer is only 180W. I would recommend the GTX 1050. It has more onboard memory. You will have to go to the manufacturer's website to determine how much power that it requires. I suggest a PSU with at least 500W. You should read the Customer Reviews to see what users have to say about both of the cards. Q: And can i also add the graphics cards above in thic pc. A: Yes, the PCI Express slot is directly below the two cables. You should use the same logic as described in my post. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.Read other 1 answers

I am a noob at upgrading and installing parts in computers. I bought a gaming computer from amazon and it has been running quite well so far, but I intend on upgrading the graphics card. Maybe paying some-one to do it for me, as I have no knowledge what so ever on how to install/remove a graphics card.
Current PC Specs that I know of:
Processor: AMD Quad Core 4130.
Graphics Card: ATI HD 5450.
Power Supply: According to the Seller. 110v, 500 watts.
As you can see I do not know much about my computer. But here is a link to the product that I bought from Amazon: http://amzn.to/1kaSsXv
I play games like: COD: Ghosts, COD 4: Modern Warfare, GTA V [When and IF it comes out on PC], Garrys Mod, WoW, Portal 2 and other high end graphics games. - Overall, I need a recommendation on what graphics card to buy, and would it both run and fit in my computer. [I live in the UK and my budget is aprox. £150]. Sorry if I have either posted this in the wrong thread, or if I am not giving enough information. Please inform me if you require more info.
EDIT!: I found some information about my computer from the amazon link, here is some Product Details:

With that budget and 500 watts, you should not be too limited in your purchases. One thing you need to check is if your Power Supply has a set of 6 pin connectors or 8 pin connectors because sometimes on the pre-bought machines they do not have too many.
Here is what I would recommend if you have at least 2 6 Pins available:
R9 280 £175
R9 270X £140
Those would both be excellent cards with the 280 being the best and the 270X being right below it in terms of performance. Both would be a huge step up from an HD 5450.

I'm soon going to upgrade the RAM on my machine from 512mb to 4GB, and I wanted to upgrade the graphics card too,
I know that I have PCIe slot and I was wondering whether I could put a PCIe 2.0 card into my machine and whether I'd need a new power adaptor or anything like that, I'm quite new to upgrading computers so any help would be grateful and I can also post any extra information you may need, thanks!

Recently I have been enjoying playing Metro 2033, however I have not been able to smoothly run the game on its highest settings because performance drops dramatically, the game lags and all that annoying jazz. So I play on less demanding settings, according to 'Can You Run it?' my system meets all the necessary minimum system requirements, it even has all the recommended system requirements bar one, it doesn’t cut the mustard in the graphics cards department.
I've been considering the idea of upgrading my graphics card to deal with the new, more graphically demanding games of the future. I don’t have a limitless budget, I wanted to ask people who knew a great deal more than I do what particular graphic card upgrades I should consider. I’m not made of money so obviously hi-end hardware is out of the question but something better than I have now and with some longevity to it would be sweet.
