Computer Link:

Foolishly, recently purchased this computer for microsoft office and gaming. Not being overly tech savy, I wasn't aware that the integrated video card it came with would not hold up against most modern day 3D video games.

I've been reading a good deal on the few options that exist in upgrading the video card on an integrated video card system, and was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction as to what I need to do. I understand that I can use the PCIe expansion slot on the motherboard to do so, but may run in to various complications when it comes to power supply, and perhaps other factors I'm not aware of.

Ideally the goal is to upgrade the video card as much as possible without compromising the computer's other parts. Is this possible? What would you suggest I do?

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

An HD5670 for $85 will run on that system without a need for a power supply upgrade.

I have a inspiron 530s and am also looking to upgrade my comp. the 5570 would be the best choice, the 5670 isn't low profile which is the type of card you need as it is a slim pc.
