AndiautopsyAndiautopsy Posts: 4Member

I was curious what graphics card could i  upgrade to with this  computer I believe it has a pci xpress x16 slot but I'm not sure the version or what cards would fit or be useable I enjoy gaming  and unfortunately I dont think the integrated card will work well...

 

if anyone could suggest  a card or help me id really appreciate it.  I havent been able to find any  real decent print out of specs for this pc  or  its pci xpress slot.

    Hello m8.

     

    What PSU do you have? how many Watts?

     

    Thank we can thing what, the best GPU you can put inside.

    Also it will be good if you change your PSU on about 450W+, than you will be can putt more powerfull GPU.

     

    Tabbiekatzte tell me why Low Profile GPU? If he can put normal one, case its big enought.

    But also we dont know how much money you want to spend on upgrade your pc. If you can tell us, than somebody can choose the best performance one.

    hey there Tom, The reason you generally would like to use a low profile card is beciase of the simple fact it takes less space insde the case allowing more upgrades to the unit. Also the serice mentioned does have a good size case but insde is still a bit small. Smiley Happy Also to the person looking to buy one I would check out the places below for the card.
