Q: New HP 510-a010 owner...Any way to upgrade graphics card?

I opened up my case but there doesnt seem to be a place to install a new GPU. I have integrated graphics, but they're not exactly great. Was wondering if I'm just missing something or if I truly just can't 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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi: I agree with you. I took a look at the motherboard illustration, and I do not see any kind of expansion slots available for add on graphics, or any other PCIe card. The only upgrades that can be done appear to be to increase the memory if you don't already have 2 x 8 GB installed.

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.

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???

A:Can i upgrade my graphics card and ram?

@Sharon_Paulson?No worries.   The current Intel graphics solution is part of the Intel Pentium CPU. (SoC system on a chip) Your notebook is an entry level(Pentium, not Intel Core i3 - i7 series) one without discrete graphics. If you had a unit with higher specs, perhaps even switchable graphics, then upgrading would not be so much of an issue. As it stands now, you can upgrade the memory, but not the graphics solution.

Hi,

I assembled my PC in mid 2010 and it's still runs OK for my purposes except that I feel that Firefox and other programs that I use feel somehow sluggish and I attribute this to the naive graphics card I'm using (AMD RADEON HD 5450) even with the latest Catalyst drivers. I picked this up on purpose because it has no fan (I'm not a gamer anyway).
Now that it's 2014, I'm asking a recommendation for a more powerful graphics card that uses no fan at all in order to enjoy more powerful graphics in Firefox, youtube, flash, photoshop,...etc without adding any extra noise.

Thanks in advance.

A:Better no fan graphics card for upgrade

I sort of doubt that it is your sluggish problem especially with Firefox. That could be due to your internet connection.

What size hard drive and is it close to being full? Do you defrag it periodically?

With that said, check out the Zotac NVIDIA GeForce GT730 4GB.

A:Graphics Card Upgrade

With that budget and 500 watts, you should not be too limited in your purchases. One thing you need to check is if your Power Supply has a set of 6 pin connectors or 8 pin connectors because sometimes on the pre-bought machines they do not have too many.

Here is what I would recommend if you have at least 2 6 Pins available:

Highest
R9 280 175
or
R9 270X 140

Those would both be excellent cards with the 280 being the best and the 270X being right below it in terms of performance. Both would be a huge step up from an HD 5450.

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.

Well, first off, there are only two companies that make CPU's, thats AMD and Intel. You probably have a Asus motherboard. Now, for you're question, you need to know if you have a 16x PCI-e port in your motherboard for a card, and, you need to tell us what you wanna do with the card.

If you play games, you need a good one. For HD video, it can be not that good, and for just browsing you dont really need one. If you wanna upgrade just for the show, go ahead, even if it wont do anything crucial.

Anyways, There are two companies that design Grahpics cards, thats Nvidia and ATI. These day's ATI has the most powerful cards, but for the more normal cards, either company is cool.
Hope this helps, Coolnes

Hi, UEFI enabled graphics cards vary by manufacturer.  Check with the specific manufacturer.  You might want to consider the EVGA NVIDIA GT 640. The GT 640 only requires a 350 watt power supply and is a single slot card. It's $70.  Check with EVGA for compatibility before you buy.

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.

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.

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

PS: Rest of specs is:
AMD Phenom II x4 3.2GHz;
Corsair 4gb ddr3 1333;
Running WinXP Pro

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.

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.

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

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.

A:Graphics Card Upgrade - Help!

Usually the product model of a power supply contains
the power rating of the power supply.
Usually,not always.
From you model I would guess it is only 300 watts.
Going to need to upgrade that.
Get something like a corsair,OCZ,antec or something
similar of good quality.
Probably want at least 600 watts.
Im assuming you have a standard ATX case.
You can add the video card to the pci express X16 slot and more than
likely disable the onboard video in the BIOS setup.

Hi guys,

I've been wanting to upgrade my graphics card for a while now, and while reading online on the best upgrade from a GTX 285 the GTX 570 would be the best route I would take.

800w will be sufficient.

If you'd like to save some money, I'd suggest the 560Ti, it -rivals- the 570 but still lacks just a little (from a scale of 10, it'd be 7/10 against 8/10)
Really depends if your wallet is stuffed with bills

If you run a 1920x1080 monitor or any dual-triple, then the extra VRAM would do nice- that's if you go dual SLi or triple.

yep, you can run a agp 8x in a agp 4x slot as long as the card says its backwards compatible

altho, with that huge bottleneck, i dont think its worth getting the 3850

save a couple of bucks and try the 3650 agp card, it also supports 4x/8x agp

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.

If not, does anyone know how I can modify more of my settings to make games run smoothly?

Although my computer is less Q's and upgrade RAM Graphics card than a year old I think it s time to upgrade some of its parts Mainly speaking the RAM chips and video card all in the name of improving gaming Graphics card and RAM upgrade Q's experience Half Graphics card and RAM upgrade Q's life on full power requires one helluva beast of a machine to run flawlessly I ve got a Toshiba Satellite A not sure on the other numbers but I will find them dual Ghz P s ATi Mobility Radeon IGP AGP internal DAC Mhz Mb I think MB RAM but on the system info screen it says I ve got mb RAM GB hard drive Matshita DVD-ram RW My screen can run up to the x x hz setting which it s on normally and sometimes reduced for games Anything else I left out let me know I think I ve found the RAM chip that I want the Kingston GB DDR SODIMM It s the most RAM I can cram into this Toshiba or at least the most that is listed as per Toshiba s website A member an another board recommended THIS It looks like the same product and has the saem specs anyone think it s different or see and conflictions I think this needs to be upped as sometimes during HL DM I get a blue screen of death saying that a memory dump is being performed and I have to restart I was hoping to stick with ATi as the current chip I have now has been good to me and HL seems to run a little better on an ATi chip I can t really find another Mobility Radeon chip for sale even though ATi has them listed on their site Or does it matter if quot Mobility quot is labeled on the chip I would think it would as all the pictures on newegg look too big for a laptop Anyone know where else to look for a graphics card other than newegg as they don t seem to have any laptop cards for sale Maybe an online store or know of a place that would be able to special order it I was eying the MOBILITY RADEON as long as it wasn t breaking my budget by too much Anyone have experience upgrading hardware in a laptop Easy Hard Tools Tips Is it possible On another non-computer forum a couple guys said is wasn t because the card is tied in with the MoBo Or if you have any opinions on these products or if you would like to suggest a different but simialar product please feel free to share nbsp

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 am really new to computers so I followed a friend's advice and purchased this computer Slim Desktop - 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 nbsp 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 nbsp I feel so hopelessly lost and helpless What on Earth am I Card Upgrade? Graphics 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 nbsp Thanks in advance Linnea

I want to buy a new video card to replace my onboard one that came with my Asrock 775i945GZ motherboard , my first choice is a Palit ATI Radeon HD2600PRO Sonic 256MB DDR3 128-bit and i wish to know if it's compatible with my mobo , or if my pci-e slot limits the graphics card performance
 

A:Graphics card upgrade

Sounds very confusing because that board has an Agi Express slot but that appears to take a pci-x 16 card which you have selected.

Have I wasted my money or will the game still work on my PC?

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 just bought a new Viewsonic VG2021m 20 inch lcd monitor. It keeps telling me that I should set my graphics card to 1400 x 1050 for best viewing results. My Intel graphics card only goes up to 1280x1024. What I'm seeing on the monitor is nice but certainly not stunning. Is it time to upgrade my graphics card. The computer is made by Emachines and I'm sure the graphics card is middle of the road at best.

I would go for this....(if you can afford it)

GTX 470 (Fermi FTW)

Newegg.com - EVGA 012-P3-1475-AR GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) SuperClocked+ 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Eventhough I am a die-hard NVIDIA fan there is no denying th raw power of this card. EVGA is also top of the line and have had ZERO issues from them

It is at 320 after mail in rebate and a lifetime limited warranty

A:Graphics Card Upgrade

After some reserch on the dell website I found out that you pc is a small form factor, but it does have 1 PCI-E X16 connector, the only thing that you would be limited by would be the form factor and the power supply.

Hope you can help.

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.

Trying to keep life in my PC for a little bit longer. New to the whole upgrading thing, so looking for some advice.

Here is my current setup, the power supply not sure what make but have listed watts. I am planning to upgrade my machines RAM to 4GB as well, don't know if that makes a difference?

1. Motherboard - Dell model: OF4991
2. Graphic interface -Nvidia FX5200 128MB RAM AGP version 3 8x
3. Memory - dual channel ddr 1024MB
4. CPU - Intel Pentium 4
5. CPU Speed -2.8GHz
6. Power Supply Make/Model - ??
7. Watt output/Amperage - 250W

As for budget well and use....budget for parts is around 50-60 and its used for FPS and some RTS games, mostly online FPS. Looking to play COD4.

Any advice would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance.
