GPU upgrade for Gateway Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Gateway Graphics Product Last response: May 10, 2010 10:09 AM in Graphics & Displays Share onslow May 8, 2010 5:47:59 AM So, last Christmas I was fortunate enough to get a Gateway DX4822. Gift horse, mouth, etc. It has onboard GPU that does ok, but I would like to play some newer games. It has an open slot, but if possible I would like to avoid buying a power supply as well. Any recommendations for a GPU?

Both use about 63 watts of power and would work with your 300w power supply (they recommend more, but it would be fine). 5670 about $90 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 4670 about $75 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
