Preferred Solution: Graphics card upgrade

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.)

A: Graphics card upgrade

No there is no removable part that could be upgraded. All the video function is on chips soldered into the motherboard. This is true of almost all laptops.

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.

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)

+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.

As the title says, I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card. 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.

Currently, I have a XFX GTS250 512MB Core Edition gpu in my computer and now some voice in my head tells me to upgrade a bit on this.
I have a bit of a tight budget at max R2000 and was wondering if a card like this would be an ample upgrade: http://titan-ice.co.za/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=51_143&products_id=5141

I have an idea that this the component causing some irritating lag in games, and I suspect that this will get worse when my new monitor arrive(a 27 inch) which will have larger res than my current 20inch 1600x900

I also prefer to run my games at the highest level possible, so tuning down the quality is not an option

Any comments, ideas etc etc are welcome

A:Graphics Card upgrade

I am running a GTX460 myself, I am a gamer and I find it quite a nice card. It isn't the best out there but it is pretty decent.

However, things you need to also consider are:

1) What PSU do you currently have, it may not be enough to support the new card as it will require more power to run it.
2) Using WinXP is limiting your graphics a bit as you can only use DirectX 9. DirectX 10 and 11 are Vista and Windows 7 only, so you are missing out on their improvements.

A:Graphics card upgrade

Lettng me know what kind of budget you have for the upgrade would be a plus. You will need a card that supports legacy BIOS.Sapphiretechnology makes cards that support legacy and EFI BIOS.A card such as the Sapphire Radeon Dual-X R7 2G D5 would work.  A Sapphire Tri-X Radeon R9 390X 8G will as well.There are others, but the card  you select as a candidate has to have legacy BIOS support . A card with only EFI support will not boot with your motherboard.  GeForce GTX 10xx series cards have only EFI BIOS support. You will also need to upgrade your ATX PSU to one with 400W or more capacity and PCIe power connectors. I suggest usng a modular style PSU, perhaps a Corsair Builder PSU like the one in the link at NewEgg.com

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

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'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.

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.

A:Graphics Card Upgrade

@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. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

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...

Hi

I currently have a nvidia geforce 9500 GS 512mb dedicated graphics card.
Its not that old, but from what i hear its not that good eaither. I couldnt find this particular one on the list of graphics cards on the forums aswell which im not sure is good.

I was wondering which graphics card i should upgrade to, as im not too sure since theres so many differant ones. I play quite a few games and i use my pc alot of the time so i would like quite a good one.

Could anyone recommend one for me if they know a good one?

Thanks

A:which graphics card to upgrade too?

Your CPU will bottleneck any good GPU unless you take it past 3 ghz. Do you have a good power supply? What model/brand? How about a budget?

Hello, and thank you for clicking on this link! 
I'm, well, a bit of a potato when it comes to these things so I need some help, Wether it be a tech savvy computer person or a tech savvy dell employe. My current computer is an XPS 8700 (I know, I know "A XPS 8700? Haven't heard that name is years...")(not sure if special edition or not.) with an GTX 750ti currently installed. Now I'm hoping to upgrade to a GTX 960, but I do think I have a power supply good enough (no upgrades to supply, recommened on nvidia website = 400W. Please correct if wrong.) But I dont know if it fits or if the power supply has enough "pins". (Yet again another term I don't understand.)
So once again if anybody can help with my delema I'd greatly apperciate it.
Thanks again,
-Dante the computer potato.

A:Can anyone help if I can upgrade to a new graphics card?

The stock 460W power supply works fine with standard GTX 960.
For Example EVGA 02G-P4-2966-KR  GTX 960 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 SuperSC ACX 2.0+ Video Card

I would however recommend a 4GIG GTX 1050 TI over a GTX960
for both power use and performance.

I'm at the point once again where my current graphics card is starting to lag behind the software produced. I currently have an ATI all-in-wonder X800 series card. The rest of my system is working great so I would just like to upgrade the graphics card. After mistakenly purchasing a new card that didn't fit my slot, I am asking for advice for the most high-end graphics card that will fit in my current slot. I'm guessing by the specs on my current card that my slot is a apg 8x (?)

What would be your suggestion???
Thanks!
 

A:Upgrade for Graphics Card

The standard appears to be PCI Express today as far as buying a new card check tigerdirect.com that is where I found mine... i do not have PCI Express but wanted 512MB and HD quality.
