Upgrade graphics card=upgrade powersupply?

Q: Upgrade graphics card=upgrade powersupply?

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.

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.)

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.

But, first thing. How much you want to spent? What power supply you have? We can suggest better if we get the answers.

A:Looking to upgrade graphics card and RAM

In order to upgrade your ram you need to know how many slots are available and what's populating those slots. Run CPU-Z to get that info. If you have 4 slots and you're only using two, just get two more sticks that match what you currently have installed. If you have two slots, you need to remove what you have and just replace with the same type of RAM but 2 x 2GB set.

As far as the video card, it would help to know the specs of the power supply. If you have one of the slim chassis then you need a low profile card which limits your choices.

What's your price range for the video card?

What kind of computer do you have? Have you updated it since you got it (adding stuff inside)?
Also, that is the drivers, they probably did something where those became uninstalled, because nothing is "Standard VGA Graphics" every company gives their cards names.

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

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c01925486

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

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 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
 

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.

I am just curious as to what graphics cards I can install in my laptop. I have the HP pavilion G070ca 17inch laptop, it currently uses an intel I7-5500u and a nvidia GT940m. I would like to upgrade to probably the 970 or 980 just wanting to know if those are compatiable with my laptop

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.

Thanks.

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.

I don't think that you have a PCI-E slot. Replacing / adding graphics cards to laptops is not possible in 95% cases. I suggest that you contact HP to find out if it's possible.

Your laptop does have an Express Card 54/34 expansion slot. However, I'm not sure if you can add a video card through it.

how noticeable will it be if I upgrade from my GeForce FX5200 to a
XFX GeForce 4 FX5600 Ultra 128MB TV DVI VIVO. Any problems/conflicts with my currents set up? I only own one game (Call of Duty) and I'm rather unimpressed with my card's ability to keep up.

I am just curious as to what graphics cards I can install in my laptop. I have the HP pavilion G070ca 17inch laptop, it currently uses an intel I7-5500u and a nvidia GT940m. I would like to upgrade to probably the 970 or 980 just wanting to know if those are compatiable with my laptop

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.

I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card and wanted to know what my options were

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. I want something that's worth the upgrade from my 285 as I play all the newest games and I would like stable FPS in games like Bad Company 2.

I'm really interested to know how much gain in performance I would get from upgrading from my 285 to this card MSI GeForce GTX 570 OC Twin FrozR III Power Edition 1280MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card [N570GTXTWINFROZRIIIPOWEREDITION/OC]

I would appreciate any advice given to me regarding this upgrade and if my system components are capable.

My current power supply: Eclipse Computers - Product Details (I know its a cheap brand but my friend recommended it to me back in the day so I got it...)

Thank you

A:Graphics Card Upgrade

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.

I am new a graphics to upgrade card...? I Should currently using a GeForce MX MX graphics card Forgive me if the answer is obvious as I am a bit illiterate when it Should I upgrade to a new graphics card...? comes to computers but should I upgrade to something better And if so how do Should I upgrade to a new graphics card...? I know if a better graphics card is compatiable with my system or not I hope this isn t a hard question to answer cause if I have to upgrade half a dozen things on my computer BEFORE I can even get a new graphics card well I really can t afford that lol I am into PC gaming and games Should I upgrade to a new graphics card...? seem to be needing higher minimum requirements all the time which is why I am considering the upgrade The graphics card I m using now had a driver issue where I have to use to play Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines but that driver won t let me play City of Heroes I have to upgrade the driver to to play that game but then the Vampire game has horrible graphic issues suddenly so I have to rollback to again JUST TO PLAY THE NEWER OF THE TWO GAMES I figure that maybe an upgrade would fix all this and probably wouldn t hurt anyway since newer games will probably require me to upgrade later on anyway If anyone could shed some light on my situation I d appreciate it thanks nbsp

Hello, I would like to upgrade my graphics card of my pc currently I am still using the AMD Radeon HD 8570 this one came with the pc when I bought back in 2013.  I have a budget of 200 euros but I can go over it if needed. Have you guys got any suggestions that fit in my computer? And for future reference I would like to know how to see if a graphics card is compatible with your setup.

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.

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?

A:[H50-50] Graphics card upgrade

Hi Ale1612YT , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
OEM recommended upgrade listed from the hardware manual page 75. 
However this does not limit other owners from customizing their rig to what is needed similar to this thread successfully upgrading both GPU and PSU (gigabyte gtx960 itx card and a corsair 500w atx psu) .
 
On the same thread , fellow selenit4 is currently in process for a zotac gtx 1060 mini and a corsair cx600 and would be updating for functionality soon.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

Hello I got a new job so I can afford to upgrade my computer finally I have recently upgraded to a core cpu which I love so much Better then a two core Any ways on topic I have a ATI Radeon if you read my post before most likely not because it was long time ago but Card Graphics - Help! Upgrade I d like to upgrade to the ATI Radeon I found out I have a PCI express x slot so it will handle it But I m confused by the watts My power supply gives me the measurements in volts - v Hz it is a ATXO DSWB power supply I couldn t find my graphics card specs anywhere not even on AMD s website But compared to the I m guessing it is about - watts since the requires watts EDIT Upon more research I found out my current graphics card the ATI Radeon HD is an onboard graphics card Will I still be able to upgrade Any help would be greatly appreciated Please and thank you TheJ nbsp

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.

I have a compaq presario running windows ME. I have 64mb ram, an AMD processor 900mhz. My original graphics card is a s3 with 8mb memory. In order to run sims2 I need 32mb video memory on a t&l compatible card (I have no idea what that means). I bought a NVIDIA Geforce4 64mb DDR PCI card. I've tried everything and can't get it to work. I've come to the conclusion that I bought the wrong card. What should I have bought. What's the best upgrade at a comparable price.
