Q: Time to upgrade.. input on these..graphics card / RAM upgrade choices??

Hi everyone....

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.....

Graphics card.....

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.

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.)

New here. This is my first post, so let me know if I've missed anything. I read the sticky. I?m looking for help to find out if my system is compatible with the video card I?d like to upgrade to (NVidia GTX 560Ti) or anything advisable for High Quality graphics on Skyrim. My current vcard is a Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT 516MB (700Mhz Core, 1750 MHz shaders and 950 MHz memory). I'd like to get better video quality. I'm currently playing Skyrim at medium.

Here are my Specs:

1. Motherboard - MSI MS-7388
2. Graphic interface ? PCI-Express x16
3. Memory ? 4GB DDR2
4. CPU ? AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+
5. CPU Speed ? 2.8GHz
6. Power Supply Make/Model - AcBel
7. Watt output/Amperage 500W (couldn't upload the sticker image for the life of me, soz. Let me know if you need Amperage)
8. Monitor: Asus vw192c (WXGA+ 1440x900)

Other: I'm from the USA but I live in Taiwan. Let me know if I've left anything out.

So can I plug and play with the GTX560Ti or what are my choices? What would I need to change to get a better experience out of Skyrim? Thanks a lot, all!
 

A:Video card upgrade choices

GeForce > Hardware > Desktop GPUs > GeForce GTX 560 Ti > Specifications




GTX 560 Ti
Minimum System Power Requirement (W) = 500 W
Supplementary Power Connectors = Two 6-pin

GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores Limited Edition
Minimum System Power Requirement (W) = 550 W
Supplementary Power Connectors = Two 6-pinClick to expand...

You are borderline but should be fine running the 384 core card at 500W's. I think they allow plenty of headroom for any possibilities so adding extra wattage for headroom yourself would probably be overkill but an option that many choose to do.

That card needs a 6pin and an 8pin connection and the manufacturer's site say a 500W PSU is advised.

I am just curious as to what graphics cards I can install in my laptop. I have the HP pavilion G070ca 17inch laptop, it currently uses an intel I7-5500u and a nvidia GT940m. I would like to upgrade to probably the 970 or 980 just wanting to know if those are compatiable with my laptop

A:Graphics Card Upgrade

Hi: There are no removable or upgradable graphics cards in your notebook. The nvidia GT940m GPU is integrated into the motherboard and the only way to upgrade the graphics would be to replace the entire motherboard with one listed in the service manual for your model notebook that may have better graphics. This would be a very costly and labor intensive project. Better to sell your notebook and get one with the graphics solution you want.

A:Can I upgrade to another graphics card?

@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.

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 doesnít 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 donít 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. Iím 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.

I'm looking to upgrade my PC for higher performance in games. Currently I play games such as Starcraft 2, Mafia 2, World of Warcraft, Left 4 Dead 2. I might buy the new Call of Duty when it's released as well and play that.

These are my current specs:
CPU: AMD ATHLON II X4 620 2.6GHZ
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-M720-US3
Memory: CORSAIR DDR2 XMS2 PC6400 1024 MB x4
Graphics Card: ATi Radeon HD3850 512 mb
PSU: Zalman ZM600-HP, 600w

I'm thinking the graphics card is currently the weak link in my system and what I should look into upgrading, is this a correct assumption?

The card I have been looking at buying is XFX ATI Radeon 5850 1024MB HD-585X-ZNFA XFX ATI Radeon 5850 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
It looks to me like it would be a good upgrade and the price tag fit my budget very well.
Any comments/suggestions on this? Would this be a good idea or should I look into upgrading something else instead? Also, will my PSU be enough with that graphics card?

Thanks in advance!

My son bought a packard bell 2389 2 months ago and wanted to upgrade the graphics card. He has bought saphire x1950 pro ATI Radion. Fitting instruction were unclear. Couldn't see where to connect power supply to card. Also how does he find out the power supply his computer has. Finally if the supply is not enough can you recommend one that will be compatable with the PC

Thanks
 

A:Graphics card upgrade

The power output of the power supply should be somewhere on the power supply. Usually the ones that manufacturers use are anywhere from 200 watts to 350 watts. (Not 100% sure).
None the less the best way to figure out which power supply you need is to see what is recommend for the card, and then get more then that.
As far as the connecting goes there should be a spare plug, but once again manufactures dont usually give extra because they want it to look clean. Just get an upgraded one from somewhere. Antec usually makes good power supplies, and power supplies should be universal.

I don't think that you have a PCI-E slot. Replacing / adding graphics cards to laptops is not possible in 95% cases. I suggest that you contact HP to find out if it's possible.

Your laptop does have an Express Card 54/34 expansion slot. However, I'm not sure if you can add a video card through it.

However so far all the answers I have found only end in me having to buy a new laptop.Is there a way for me to simply buy a new graphics card that will work and an external hard drive to make up for the lack of space I have on my computer? Or do I have no choice but to go and buy a new laptop?

A:Upgrade graphics card

@GhostCat6 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Sorry, but unlike desktops, which use cards, laptops have chips that are soldered directly to the motherboard or system board, or come in the form of "modules".Only a very limited subset of HP laptops actually allow the replacement of processor, audio, video or WiFi "modules" and, as far as I can tell, yours is not one of these models.This means there is really no way to upgrade the video, WiFi, or processor on your laptop. You're stuck with what came with the PC.You COULD consider putting an SSD in the laptop, but that really only helps with reducing the boot time and program load times. Once the game is loaded into memory and running, the SSD doesn't help real-time performance.

Hi,

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.

A:Better no fan graphics card for upgrade

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.

Specs Link: HP Support document - HP Support Center
Here are the specs:
Motherboard: H-RS880-uATX (Aloe)
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1045T
Operating speed: 2.7 GHz (up to 3.2 GHz turbo)
Number of cores: 6
Socket: AM3
Bus speed: 4000 MHz HT3
TDP: 95W
Ram: Amount: 8 GB
Speed: PC3-10600 MB/sec
Type: DDR3-1333
Memory upgrade inform
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6770
Powersupply: Form Factor: internal ATX
Total wattage: 460W
Nominal input voltage range:
100-127V/3A (50-60Hz)
200-240V/2A (50-60Hz)
Dimensions: 150mm x 140mm x 86mm (5.9 x 5.5 x 3.4 inches)

A:Best Graphics Card, I can upgrade to.

The best card you can get is the one you can afford. Just go to a higher series AMD card. Something in the 7000 series.

You can only put 1 video card on that board, it only has 1 PCI-Express slot

And you could always max out the memory to 16 GBs (but 8 GBs is fine)

But you might want to spend the money on a really good 550 to 650 watt Power Supply

Ok like it states in the title I want to upgrade my graphics card.
My Desktop PC name & model: HP Pavillion 550-101na

Right now I have a dual-graphics card setup which was pre-built when I bought it.
The Graphics cards are: AMD Radeon R7 Graphics + R5 Dial Graphics.

I want to upgrade to a better graphics card which can support more games, etc.
Would you know if my motherboard could support an upgrade and what graphics card would you recommend.
Thanks in advance!

Just took a look inside my PC and the HDMI/VGA port is on the motherboard..
Was wondering if its possible to upgrade it to something with 2 HDMI + VGA?

PC: Acer Aspire-X1301

Board layout: HERE

On board #16 & #17
16 - PCI Express x16 slot

Can I connect a upgraded graphics card to these? If so what wires do I need?

Sorry for the nooby post

A:Can I upgrade my graphics card..?

Hey Jacko,

Yes, you can put a graphic card on your mobo.

But, first thing. How much you want to spent? What power supply you have? We can suggest better if we get the answers.

For starters, try some of these and keep us posted.

Hello! I have recently purchased an HP Pavilion 550-222ur and found out that the default graphics card (GeForce GT 730) is underperforming in most games. So I  want to get a more powerful one (was thinking GeForce GTX 750 Ti or Asus GeForce GTX 950 mini). While researching the upgrade possibility, I found out that some graphics cards fail to function on HP-branded PCs due to some BIOS issue. So the question is: will the graphics cards mentioned in this post work? And if those cards are compatible, I will have to get a better PSU as well, right? Thanks in advance. Providing specifications of my PC for reference purposes: http://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/HP-Pavilion-550-200-Desktop-PC-series/9259612/model/9764558/docu...

A:Graphics card upgrade

GeForce GTX 750 Ti or Asus GeForce GTX 950 mini are not viable for your specific desktop PC. The internal 180W PSU, as shown in the specs that you graciously provided a link to,  is a definite showstopper. Your PC is, unfortunately, not what one would call a good upgrade candidate as HP did not state which case format it has. I will ask HP about it.

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:
Processor Brand: AMD
Processor Type: AMD BULLDOZER [4130 Quad Core]
Processor Speed: 3.9 GHz
Processor Socket: SocketAM3
Processor Count: 4 Memory
RAM Size: 8000 MB
Computer Memory Type: DDR3 SDRAM Hard Drive
Hard Drive Size: 1000 GB
Hard Drive Interface: Serial ATA
Additional Drives: DVD+-RW Graphics

A:Graphics Card Upgrade

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:

Highest
R9 280 £175
or
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.

Hey I have a HP Media Center PC m1250.uk and I want to upgrade my graphics card from a Radeon X300 SE to a low - mid budget card than can competently play 1080p HD video from YouTube and things like that,

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!

Alex.

I'm a graphic artist using my fiance's computer HP All In One 20-d034. My question is I'm a member of Adobe CC and run the latest versions of Photoshop & Illustrator mainly. I'm unable to use the 3D functions of these programs due to OpenGL issues. Can I upgrade the graphics card? The drivers installed are the best that I can get for the factory installed card.
