Basically I want to know if I can upgrade, and what products I would be looking at, and even a recommendation for an optimal not expensive/quality card.

Also, if you need any other information just ask.

Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Graphics Card Upgrade

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145015

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.

RELEVANCY SCORE 56.8

Hi,
My system came with a R9 270 which I want to replace with a Sapphire Dual X R9 R280x.
That card needs a 6pin and an 8pin connection and the manufacturer's site say a 500W PSU is advised.
So, I'm concerned that I get a new PSU that fits my case, has the right connectors for all the 8700 components, and is say north of 600W.
Could anyone point me in the right direction.
My system info is......
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3601 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
RAM 24GB
Thanks

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.

A:Upgrade graphics card=upgrade powersupply?

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.

Is it possible to upgrade the built in Nvidia GeForce GT 745A card to one more suitable for gaming? I unstand it is alot of work and it's costly to install a graphics card in an AIO pc. If not, does anyone know how I can modify more of my settings to make games run smoothly? Many games run fine (such as GTA 5) but some are still choppy and have to be run at low settings (such as Forza Hotrizon 3).

I have a Sparkle 9500 gt right now so I really am looking to the upgrade of my card so I can play all the newest games I have on max settings (or at least very close to) with good frame rate (Crysis, Oblivion, Dragon Age, MW2, Metro 2033, ect.). So I am looking to buy into a higher range model around the 250 - 350 dollar price range (maybe a bit higher if necessary). Below is a list of my system specs which I hope you find useful.

1. Motherboard- XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Motherboard
2. Graphic interface - 2 PCI Express X16 Slots
3. Memory - 4 gigs of Kingston 667mhz pc5300 ddr2
4. CPU - Intel core 2 quad q6700
5. CPU Speed - 2.66 ghz
6. Power Supply Make/Model - Ultra LSP 650w
7. Watt output/Amperage -- 650w
8. Country -- USA
9. If it helps I have a 22" Acer Widescreen monitor

Originally I was thinking about switching to ATI but heard that if I do that I would have to invest in a new motherboard because mine looks like it can't use crossfire. Even though right now I'm only really interested in buying one card but in the future I will probably buy a second card if necessary. I heard that ATI's drivers don't work to well with Nvidia stuff so I'm kinda under the impression that even one card might crash a lot. Also, I was looking at the Nvidia GTX 200 card series to purchase but I am wondering if they are even worth the money that they are being sold at (GTX 285?) or if... Read more

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.

I have a HP d4000e with a new blue ray player installed but the nVidia 6200se video card will not support the blue ray player, can anyone recommend an agp video card to replace it and where do I get it.
 

A:Graphics card upgrade

In order to play Blu-ray content you'll need (besides the Blu-ray player ofc):

A HDCP-capable software media player (you should have received one with the player);
A HDCP-capable video card (all modern video cards from 2007 and onwards);
And a HDCP-capable display (if it has a HDMI input, then it should also have HDCP).
What's HDCP?
High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, a form of copy protection that basically lets you play only on devices that have this feature.
Check this link if you want to learn more about it.

Back to your question, if you can find one in your area, HIS makes an AGP version of the ATi Radeon HD 4350 which is excellent for Blu-ray playback and is also pretty cheap.
The full name for it should be HIS Radeon HD4350 iFan 512MB DDR3 64-bit AGP.
Sapphire also makes an AGP HD 4650: Sapphire Radeon HD4650 1GB DDR2 128-bit AGP. This is a bit more expensive than the other, but is also more suitable for gaming (if you care).
If you tell me in which country you live, I could also give you some suggestions where to buy one.

PS: Both cards are HDCP-compliant.

A:Graphics Card Upgrade

Two things to watch for:  your system likely doesn't have power connectors for a video card, so be sure the card you buy doesn't need them.s
The other thing is to make sure the card you want fits the system physically - there are differences in physical size depending on the card you choose.
Otherwise, that chip should work -- provided the card itself fits your chassis and draws power only from the mainboard.

Thanks.

A:Upgrade Graphics Card

htank, welcome to the forums.

Will that card work with Windows 7? Yes it will. Is it worth buying just for Windows 7? Others may say yes, but personally I would say no. Reason for that is you are liable to run into all kinds of problems getting it to work due to being an AGP card, if you haven't yet do a search of this forum and you will find there have been all kinds of problems getting AGP cards to work in Windows 7 (there is a 27 page thread stickied at the top of this forum). Most of the problems stem from AGP not being fully supported and the lack of a proper AGP driver (not to be confused with the driver for the video card), that allows the video card driver to work properly.

Also depending on your current power supply, you may also need to upgrade it for that card as the card requires an external connection to the power supply.

Another thing is that sad to say, but the card you linked to costs about what your whole computer is worth. Also if you do get that card and then decide down the road to get a new computer, you won't be able to move the card to the new computer as there are no computers being sold with AGP slots anymore.

Normally I am all for upgrading as necessary, but in cases like yours I usually recommend on holding off on Windows 7 until such a time as you get a new computer that is more in line with running it without needlessly spending money to get there.

I've searched and found a few posts on here questioning upgrading the GPU in the H30 but I haven't seen any follow-ups from people that have actually done it. I'm in the same position with an H30-50 with a GT 705 that I want to change - ideally for a GTX 750Ti but I've found that it draws a bit more power than the GTX 745 which is on the Lenovo hardware list.  Lenovo list 2 ratings of PSU (180w and 240w) and I have a 240W.  The max power of the 750 is 60W against 55W for the 745 - which would equate to drawing about  2% more power on the 240W PSU.  Not much more and possibly within tolerance, although I have already added an SSD. Anyway, I'd be interested to hear from anyone that has actually upgraded their GPU in an H30 or comments about upgrading to a GTX 750Ti. For info the comparisons are shown below.  http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp[]=2815&cmp[]=2843&cmp[]=2952

I am currently using a GeForce MX/MX 400 graphics card. Forgive me if the answer is obvious, as I am a bit illiterate when it comes to computers, but should I upgrade to something better? And if so, how do I know if a better graphics card is compatiable with my system or not?? I hope this isn't a hard question to answer... cause if I have to upgrade half a dozen things on my computer BEFORE I can even get a new graphics card... well, I really can't afford that, lol.

I am into PC gaming, and games seem to be needing higher minimum requirements all the time, which is why I am considering the upgrade. The graphics card I'm using now had a driver issue, where I have to use 56.73 to play Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines, but that driver won't let me play City of Heroes. I have to upgrade the driver to 66.93 to play that game, but then the Vampire game has horrible graphic issues suddenly, so I have to rollback to 56.73 again JUST TO PLAY THE NEWER OF THE TWO GAMES!

I figure that maybe an upgrade would fix all this, and probably wouldn't hurt anyway since newer games will probably require me to upgrade later on anyway.

If anyone could shed some light on my situation, I'd appreciate it, thanks.

I have a Dell XPS 8700, and I'm currently looking to upgrade the graphics card and power supply. I've been having issues with games freezing and I want a better graphics card anyway because the 750 Ti just isn't doing it for me. I know I want to get a GeForce GTX 1060, but I am unsure of which power supply I should get. I don't trust the default Dell PSU. My case is ATX so I'd like to get a smaller PSU if possible so there's no issues with space. I'm unsure of which brand I should get and what wattage/voltages I would need. I'd at least like an 80 Plus Gold rating. Also, which 1060 brand should I get? Should I go with a blower-style card to reduce some heat in the case, or just stick with the regular?

A:What PSU and graphics card should I get for my upgrade?

The GeForce GTX 1060 is a much better graphic card than the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, but it also uses 60W more power and it requires a minimum of a 400W power supply.

The Dell XPS 8700 appears to come with a 450W power supply, so I can understand your concern about sticking with it because of the power demands of hard-core gaming.

There are a number of hardware/gaming experts here who can give you recommendations on a replacement power supply, so be patient until one replies.

Hi, would like to know, what are my options, with regards to low-end graphics card?

I currently have "Mobile Intel 4 series express chip" Integrated graphics, and a 305W PSU.

Just wanted a budget graphics card, for running emulators and light end gaming. Need exact model numbers as I really havent a clue what Im looking for. Looking to spend about ?30 max, and probably get it second hand.

Thanks in advance

how noticeable will it be if I upgrade from my GeForce FX5200 to a
XFX GeForce 4 FX5600 Ultra 128MB TV DVI VIVO. Any problems/conflicts with my currents set up? I only own one game (Call of Duty) and I'm rather unimpressed with my card's ability to keep up.

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.

I'm currently using the following card:

EVGA 01G-P3-1158-TR GeForce GTS 250 1GB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI.

Last week I changed from Win 7 home Premium 32 bit to the 64 bit. I built this computer last fall, and the the rest of my specs are I5 Quad core 760, 2.80G; 8gb Corsair DDR3 1600, 600W PS.

I use this computer mostly for Flight Sims, and it seems to me my best upgrade would be the GPU. I've always had good luck with EVGA, Nvidea cards, and would like to get one that will outperform the old 250 I'm using and will also run on the 600W PS. I guess I could replace the PS if I really had to, but not looking forward to the work involved, lol.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any suggestions that will improve my system. Thanks.
