I'm planning to get a new graphics card as I am currently using an on-board chip which does not fit my needs.
I would like to upgrade my PC (Midi-Tower; 180x420x470) with an Asus GF GTX 770 graphics card.
My main questions are:
- Is it compatible to my mainboard?
- Will it fit in my tower?
- Is there something I should know regarding the on-board chip?
- do I need a better power supply?
Socket: LGA 1150
Processor: Intel Core i5-4570 (4x3,2 GHz); 8 GB RAM
current Graphics chip: Intel HD Graphics 4600 (1150 MHz)
Case; Measure from Back to start of HDD cage, if not long enough see if you can remove HDD bay sections, then it should fit.
There is nothing you need to know about the on-board chip.
You need a better PSU, Preferably; Seasonic/XFX/Antec/Corsair with at least 80+ Bronze certification and a minimum of 5 years warranty, 600W. If a PSU you found fits all those categories, then you know your looking at something quality.
