Author Topic: Video cards compatible with this model?  (Read 989 times)

So after realizing how long it would take to raise 600+ dollars, I've decided to upgrade the one im using.
my grandpas computer is like a decade old but someone upgraded the gpu so now it runs next-gen games.

sooooooo

what good video cards are compatible with it, and how would i be able to upgrade the RAM
my max budget for a video card is 130, because thats exactly how much i have.


>eMachines
>Intel GMA 950
Go to a junkyard and find a graphics card that fits in any of your expansion slots. It doesn't matter what it is, everything will be an improvement.
EDIT: Jokes aside, I've found a card that suits your budget: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121435
It's an Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti, $130 with rebate and free shipping.
I also found an ATi Radeon 6770 for $130, without rebate and excluding shipping:

EDIT2: How powerful is your power supply? Since it's a stuffty OEM computer there's a chance it's not able to handle the cards.

You don't need 12 GB RAM, and the HD6570 is a low to mid-end card.

I can think of why i need 12gb. Your obviously an idiot.
What the hell is an HD6570. Its a raedon, and it was 350$ to add. A 5770 is 120$. You really are ignorant.

Post a picture of your task manager showing all 12gb utilized.

ATi started using the 'HD' prefix on their Radeon cards starting with the 2xxx-series (I think). The HD 6570 costs $75 on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102934&cm_re=Radeon_6570-_-14-102-934-_-Product
If you paid $350 for that then you must've gotten ripped. You can get a 6970 for that money.

That isnt my video card. I order from a local store, which is known for selling custom Gcards and what not. It may be a HD6570, but it is a stuff ton better then that stuff on newegg.

It's the exact same model you idiot.

no.
An HD 6570 is an HD 6570 and nothing else. Perhaps you misread the specifications and it's an HD 6970.
