I have an HP Pavillion p7-1549 desktop that I just bought a month ago, but I have discovered that the video card, named above, cannot support 3D and high res features that are a part of many of the games that my daughter and I play. I bought this computer because it was a reasonably priced gaming system, but you wouldn't believe how difficult it is to get an answer to this simple question. Please help.

So I am assuming that you are expecting better performance in games.

The fact of the matter is that the Radeon HD 7570 is a pretty weak graphics card compared mainstream graphic cards and performance oriented graphics cards. You cannot expect much from a reasonable priced desktop that is not even advertised as something capable of playing games.

If you want better performance in games without having to lower the resolution or lower graphics quality, then you need to buy a graphics cards. The HP also only comes with a 300w power supply (PSU) which also limits your options. A gaming oriented PC generally comes with a more powerful graphics card than the Radeon HD 7570 and a 300w PSU.

The best card I can recommend is the Radeon HD 7750 which is considered a mainstream gaming graphics card and is the minimum card I recommend for gamers on a budget, but also want good performance. The 300w PSU means that more powerful graphic cards cannot be used because they require more power than that PSU can deliver.

The following XFX Radeon HD 7750 can be purchased for $80 after a mail-in rebate. + $3 shipping.

If you live in Canada, then you can buy the same card for $80 after a rebate, but shipping charges is $11.50.

Thank you very much for your detailed solution, I really appreciate it. Not to bombard you, but what would I be looking at for an appropriate psu if I want to go for a kick ass card?

What card are you considering and where do you live (US / Canada)?

Also what games are you specifically interested in playing with your daughter? And at what resolution?

You'll have to pardon my ignorance, but I'm not tech savvy. I just want something that will allow my daughter and I to access and enjoy games that have HD, 3D and high res features. I live in Canada.

What games and what resolution? Sims 3, Sim City 5? 1920x1080 (a.k.a 1080p)?

What are your expectations?
July 3, 2013 8:56:46 PM

Well, I play Bejeweled 3, she plays Moshimonsters, Barbie and affiliated game sites, and Animal Jam right now. We both love FB gaming. We also love Youtube, Vevo. I would like to explore other adventure games in the future. My highest screen res right now is 1600 x 900.

Those are Java based games so they should not be very demanding. The Radeon HD 7750 should be just fine since it is the most powerful card you can buy that works with a 300w PSU and it also works in dual graphics mode (formerly called Hybrid Crossfire I believe) with the integrated Radeon HD 7660D in the A10-5700 APU to give better performance than just having the Radeon HD 7750 by itself. But that only works with games designed to take advantage of that feature. Java based games will not do so.

Should you want to play more complex games like the Sims 3 and Sim 4 (in 2014 I think), the Radeon HD 7750 should be more than enough since games like that are designed to have mass appeal and that includes people with relatively weak graphic cards. I really do not believe you need anything more powerful than the Radeon HD 7750.

Should you really want to buy a "kickass" graphics card, then you should consider the following Corsair Builder Series 600w PSU. That should allow you to install just about any graphics card you want except for the truly powerful ones that costs over $800 that hardcore gamers with money would consider buying.

Also...

I see that you have posted this same questions 3 times. That is against forum rules since it is considered spamming. This is not a chatroom. This is a posting forum where it takes time before getting a response.

You need to also clearly state what your question is to get a quicker answer. As I stated in my 1st post, I assumed you were disappointed with the Radeon HD 7570 since you did not clearly state what the problem was.

Thanks for all your help. This is great. Sorry about the multiple ads, but I only submitted once. There might be a glitch on this site because I posted the ad and then the site wanted me to sign up, so it may have happened during that process. Thanks for the advice on my query, I will make note of it for future posts.

You are going to play flash games?? Why would you need a better card to do that????????
That card is way more then enough. Oh and BTW that graphics card can go up to 1920x1080 You need a monitor that can do so as well, Those vary from 150$-200$.

Personally If I did not want to spend allot but wanted a good gaming rig to match a ps4 and xbox one. You could buy the Corsair cx 600 series like the one guy told you. And buy a MSI GTX 650Ti. The total would be about $184 dollars. And your system will be able to do anything a high end gamers pc can do. It may not do it as pretty but it will do it without a hitch.

I use a 17 inch lcd, And it goes to only 1280x1024 max. So if you have a 17 inch its ok to stick with it. It would save allot of money, And not to mention a mid range card can max out and have plenty of FPS to spare at 1280x1024. Your games will not look much different at 1280x1024 vs 1920x1080 either, It is just a waste of card performance, And a waste of money for a new monitor. However if you have the money to spare it is always good to have the 1920x1080 option. But my cheap GTX650Ti does very well at 1280x1024, And has maxed almost all my games. Maybe a mid range card could do almost as good at 1920x1080 but I am cheap. My gpu is cheap my monitor is cheap my keyboard is cheap my CX600 is cheap, My i5 750 is cheap, And my girlfriend is cheap
