Hello, I bought this prebuilt PC a month ago and it's doing just fine. Games work well but I'd like to be able to play them at 1080p 60FPS. I was wondering if this card would do that, and if it's compatible with my PC.

Card: EVGA - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card

My PC: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/ibuypower-desktop-8gb-memor...

Well, the system has a discrete card and most botique builders don't solder in their PCs, so I'm prety sureyoucan swap out the 7750 for a 760 :D

Hi,

it should be compatible but it is hard to know if you have a open slot for it.
In the description, I can't find the mobo descritopn or anything

on the website description, I found
Available Expansion Slots
1 PCI Express 2.0 x1

For digital cameras and digital audio players: Slots that allow the addition of a removable memory card, such as Secure Digital or CompactFlash, to increase storage capacity.

For computers: Slots on the motherboard that accept sound cards, video cards, memory and other upgrade cards.

So it should, but also you need a good 500w PSU minimum to run the card properly.

But is the power supply enough? And will the 760 allow me to play at 1080p with 60FPS?


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... From this listing, it looks like it has a 600 W PSU, I don't know the efficiency certification, so that's on the shady side, but at face value, it could power a system with a 760.

Well, it depends on the game, the 760 is mostly derived from the 670 which was a helluva performer a year or so ago. It could max out a lot of games on 1080p, but the gaming world hasmoved on ever since and has added more demanding titles ever since.
