Lately, my current graphics card has been very loud. I looked around on the internet and tried just cleaning it out because dust could cause it to get stuck and all that. Anyways, it seemed to have helped with the noise for now but through researching what else could be wrong (just in case), I realized that my graphics card could use updating. I don't know very much about them though so I'm sort of confused when looking.
Here are my computer specs:
AMD FX-6100 Six-Core Processor (3.30GHz)
Gigabyte 2AC8 Motherboard
Not sure what sound card I have but this is what I want to upgrade.
AMD Radeon HD 6450, 1GB
I've been playing a lot more computer games recently and when my graphics card fan would get loud was when I would play a game, use Photoshop, or open iTunes. It may have just been dirty but I still wouldn't mind upgrading as I plan on doing more stuff in Photoshop/Illustrator in the future anyways.
I would say my budget is around $100 but if there's something that's a really good deal and a little over, I'll try and make it work. In all honesty, I'm sort of trying to look on Amazon because I have a gift card for there and it would help to save me some money (and slightly raise my budget).
Oh and I plan on using dual monitors but if it can support 3+ monitors, that'd be an added bonus. Obviously not necessary as that's asking a lot for a low price.
Edit: I've been sort of looking at this XFX AMD Radeon HD 7750 because it's right around what I was wanting to spend and it supports multiple monitors; has AMD Eyefinity which says it supports up to six monitors. Plus, looking on the official website for this card it even shows the main reason I want to use 3+ screens.
quote john222That board does contain a PCIe 16X slot, so you are good to go in terms of card compatibility. For $200, something like a 7850 or 7870 (if you can find it for the price) would be ideal.Hello, I am not too tech savvy, but I have an old computer that I want to have slightly upgraded. I have desktop with a Dell 0G3HR7 motherboard, and I would like to upgrade the graphics card. It is currently a Nvidia 310, and I was wondering what is the best graphics card that will work with my motherboard for about $200. I will be gaming with this machine. Thanks in advance.
quote JackieboyAs I said, go with a 7850. If that's too expensive, a 7770 should suffice.hi, I'm replacing a failed GPU, not a gamer myself but fixing a casual gamer's PC. Unfortunately he is no help with my query so turning to you guys, hope you can help.
I need to replace an ASUS ENGTX275. The motherboard is M4N72-E
The PSU is 1050W
Anyone have a recommendation please to achieve similar or improved specification in the replacement GPU?
Budget up to 150 approx ($$ or euro)
quote Gta_Kh2 freakAround $120, a 7770 would be a good choice. To check your power supply (it's not as scary as it seems), just read what I wrote above. For a 7770, all you need is something like a CX430 or CX500 anyway. The unit itself should cost maybe $50-$60 at most.Hey, hope you guys don't mind me hijacking and necromancing this thread, but I'm not entirely tech-savvy as well and would like some feedback on the decision I am able to make.
I have an ASUS Desktop CM5571 model, the CPU is a Pentium Duel-Core, 2.70 GHz. Ram is 6.00 GB, and I have an integrated graphics card. I would like to upgrade from the integrated to a more dedicated one. I was thinking about getting this after researching around:
I'd like to keep the budget to around $120 or less. However, I do realized that PSU is also a factor when upgrading a graphics card, but I have no idea how to check the PSU for my computer and I don't want to unnecessarily open up the desktop yet since... well, I have no idea in the first place and I fear of screwing something up. I've had the desktop since 2009, so warranty is long gone.
Otherwise, is this a good buy for my computer? I would like to play a few games such as Minecraft, LoL, perhaps some more graphics concentrated games like DayZ, so to speak. I don't want high quality, just something that will last me the next good years or so and play these sorts of games very smoothly with decent graphics compared to the integrated graphics card. Also, if my current stock PSU is not good enough, what PSU do you guys recommend if I were to say that I want the total budget to be at least under $250?
