  1. I don't quite understand what you mean, but the 600 series is a lot better than 500.

    I read that yes, the nvidia 210 is SLI ready.

    What is the graphics card for, and do you have a budget?
  2. You aren't providing nearly enough info. What games do you want to play? What resolution? At what quality? What is your PSU? What country? What currency? 5000 US dollars? Sure we can find something...

    You would NEVER want to SLI it. Going off no information the best card that is about guaranteed to work, doesn't need extra power and can actually game is the HD7750. Nvidia is not competitive... At least here. But we have no clue where you are...
  3. holy..., gt210 is like the lowest of the bunch. just look at the model number (they are still reliable nowadays)
    the top end is the highest, 280, 270, 260.... until 210.
    if you are using nvidia, try to get at least the gt 650 (higher is faster), or for any generation x60 or x50
  4. 1. Is that in Rupees? In that case, I'm not familiar with pricing in India, but it might be enough for a Geforce GTX 650 Ti. If not, I'd really recommend a Radeon HD 7770 over the cheaper but significantly slower Geforce GTX 650.

    2. Technically perhaps, but I wouldn't recommend it. A single affordable graphics card would be much better than spending money on another 210.
  5. Well you could add a better GPU, but it'll need to be a GPU that doesn't require any additional power from the PSU (since I wouldn't trust putting more load on the stock PSU that HP ships with the system). You would be looking at the AMD 7750 (if it fits within your budget) or the GTX 640.

    Here is the specifications that I got from HP's website, but this version online doesn't come with the Geforce 210.

  9. Just add a better GPU (one of the two GPU's I listed will do just fine). Is there a website that you use to order parts from?

    Well the GTX 650 doesn't meet your budget requirements that you stated. It will be better than what we have all been suggesting. Of coarse you will need to upgrade your PSU to run the GTX 650, if you want to do that. The best option (cheapest too) is to buy:

    5832 Rs. (when in stock, currently it's OOS):
    Palit NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 2 GB DDR3 Graphics Card

    Like I said, if you want the GTX 650 you will need to upgrade your PSU too.

  13. Best answer
    Yes, like I stated before, the GTX 640 or the AMD 7750 will do fine with your system, because they don't require any additional power from your PSU (mainly an additional PCI-e power connector).

    thnx a lot for help

    one more thing if i were to upgrade my psu what would u recommend,
    thnx
  15. Well this is what I'd look at, assuming it fits your case (standard ATX dimensions):

    2734 Rs.
    Seasonic SS400BT PSU

    Comes with 2 x PCI-e power connectors (6 pin) and 30A on the 12v rail. Should be good up to a 7850 or GTX 660.
