Upgrade My Graphics Card!

Q: Upgrade My Graphics Card!

Hi everyone. I hope you can help me with this one.

I want to upgrade my graphics card to be able to play some 3D games. I can't play any 3D games at all, if I try after installation, it hangs itself, or freezes, or I get a black screen. I've been given a couple of games but with out a 3D graphics card...2D just ain't enough!!! lol

Here are my PC Specifications:

Ali Aladdin V AFPset - GA-5AA Motherboard
320Mb Ram
15gig HD
AMD K6-2 450 Mhz CPU
Creative Audigy Player Soundcard
Matrox Millenium PCI Graphics card
O/system - WindowsXP Pro

My PC works well but the graphics card is old (it was orginally out of my really old pc - AST Advantage, purchased in 1994).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have checked out other threads and they've been helpful, but I need to know what would be compatible with the system I've got. Also cost will be playing a big part in what ever card I buy.
Ta In Advance

Preferred Solution: Upgrade My Graphics Card!

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.)

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.

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.

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.

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)

Currently have the GeForce 4, however, this is not compatible with Aero graphics with the new win 7 system. I have a 17" LED monitor I would like to use. Currently using a CRT. After viewing what I have what is the hot Graphics situation that will operate with my system. Keeping in mind the pocket book is frugal but sometimes a little more spent is cost effective in the long run. Not much of a gamer but love flight sims and such. Are there any other upgrades that should be considered?

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 need to upgrade my nvidia GeForce 6150 se nForce 430 graphics card. As I don't run complicated games, etc., it can be  somewhat basic, as economic as possible.

A:Graphics Card Upgrade

Hi: I would go for the Nvidia GT 610 which should be better than what you have now and is supported in W8.1 and W10. The above video card only draws 29W, so it should work just fine with the 250W power supply your PC has. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st_price-asc-rank?keywords=nvidia+geforce+gt610&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Anvi...

I am really new to computers, so I followed a friend's advice and purchased this computer (Slim Desktop 410-030) for gaming. However, I came to find out later that the computer wasn't really all that well equipped for gaming straight from the factory. So, I've been looking at ways that I can possibly upgrade this computer to better suit my needs since I JUST bought this thing a few months ago. I need to get an actual dedicated graphics card, I know at least that, but according to a techie that I went to about upgrading the computer, there isn't actually enough space in this computer to get an updated graphics card. So to remedy that, apparently I have to get a whole new case for the computer. And ON TOP of all of that, apparently there's not even enough power in this computer to handle a new graphics card. I feel so hopelessly lost and helpless. What on Earth am I supposed to do to get some form of satisfactory gaming power out of this thing? Any recommendations on good graphics cards and upgrades that won't completely bankrupt me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance,Linnea

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).

Hi there, I have the HP8-1375EA with just the standard GT 640 which obviously came with the prebuilt desktop, i do alot of gaming on the computer and the graphics card is just holding it back massively so i definately need an upgrade but obviously have my concerns like will it fit in the box, is the power supply enough, and will the system even take it, the power supply is currently 460w, the graphics card im looking at upgrading to is the GTX 960 or 950 and both of them only take an additional 50w compared to the GT 640 which takes 350w so im not sure that will be a problem so my question really is will the system accept the new change or will it not even work? and the case is quite small so will it fit inside? im not too sure how big the 960 or 950's are so im not sure how much space ill be looking for when i open it up.

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


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'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:
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!

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

A:Can I Upgrade my Graphics Card

@SpitFire1 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.

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.

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.

A:Graphics card upgrade.

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

Is it possible to upgrade the graphics card on the Z40-70? I think the graphics card that came with it is the NVIDIA GEFORCE 820M graphics card and it isn't able to handle the games I want to play.  Any suggestions? (Besides buying a laptop) Thanks.
