Best graphic card for HP Paviliion hpe h8-1224

Hi guys I need some advice. I bought this dektop a year ago HP Paviliion hpe h8-1224 which the specs details are:

Processor: AMD FX-8100 95W
Motherboard: M3970AM-HP (Angelica)
Memory Ram: 16 Gb ( 15.8 Gb usable)
Hard drive: 2Tb
Graphic cards: Eyefinity Radeon HD 7570
Power Supply: 300W

The graphic card was built in with the desktop when I bought it. Now I want to upgrade my graphic card since I can't able to play on Crysis 3 and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier on higher Resolution (1920x1080). Iv'e heard Zotac GT630 Synergy Edition 2GB DDR3 PCI-E Video Card. Is it better to upgrade on this? my budget is $100-150.

  1. Assuming you meant you have the Radeon HD5750 or Radeon HD 7750, both cards are far better than the Geforce GT 630. At only a $150 budget, I cannot recommend any card to upgrade to. Besides, much more of a card is also probably going to require a better power supply as well.

  2. Thanks much Wolfshadw. I found this at Best Buy which I think still on sale right now Zotac GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB DDR5 PCI-E Video Card (ZT-61103-10M) with Memory Clock Speed 6200 Mhz and core clock speed of 1033Mhz. Is this atleast a good graphic card? I'm not really sure what exactly to look if buying video cards. Definitely I will also upgrade my power supply to 700W.

    My board says can only accomodate PCI-E x16, most of expensive card right now are on PCI- E 3.0 can I use this instead?

  3. Yes, the GTX 650 Ti would be a better card to get.
    Not all power supplies are created equal. If you upgrade your power supply, make sure it's from one of these manufacturers: Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, PC Power and Cooling, FSP (Fortran Source). Buying and installing a cheap/no-name power supply puts your entire system at risk or electrical damage.
    PCI-E is the graphic card standard
    PCI-Ex16 is the physical graphic card slot size and bandwidth standard
    PCI-E 3.0 is the version of the PCI-E standard and it's actually PCI-Ex16 3.0

    Yes, you can use that card.

  4. I'm sorry just read your reply, I just purchase Thermaltake PSU 850Watts, unfortunately it was not written in your recommendation. Can I keep this or need to replace?
  5. Best answer
    Keep it. Thermaltake is usually ok.
