I am trying to find out what is the best gaming graphics card I can get for the Pegatron M2N78-LA mobo. I currently am running a ATI Radeon HD 4350 and I know from experience that it is not a very good card when it comes to running games on anything but low or none settings. So my question is, what card series can I actually put into the motherboard? Price is not an issue. I also know that i am going to need to get a new power supply. It is 250watt max. The card should be aimed at getting me to higher detail levels in game. Also, is there anyway for me to upgrade the processor? I know very little about computers. I've been doing a lot of research but I'm stuck on a few spots. Thanks in advance.
That's a pretty sweet page. I'm glad you showed me that. Guess I'm going to have to do some better research before I go asking any more questions. Also though, its the same board but not the same chips or much of anything else from the list on the site. I'm going to see if I can find the manufacturing date and see how old it is and if that might be the reason why.
You can get a hd 5670 which is way faster and it should run on your PSU (it consumes only 40 watts more) but you should get a new PSU and a better card if you play at bigger resolutions, what's your monitor's resolution?
I run a native 1920 X 1080. Now that I've learned so much more then I knew before, about computers in general. I can finally buy a new graphics card. Think I'm going to upgrade the processor too now that I know what I actually have. A Radeon HD 6970 looks pretty good to me. I'll continue my research. Thanks for the great responses.
I have the same motherboard and I'm trying to figure out what I can physically fit for a new graphics card. I already own an XFX Radeon 5570 HD 1 GB DDR3 128 bit PCI Express 2.0 card.
I'd like to run something in the 6000 HD series with 2 GB DDR5, but I'm trying to get the measurements correct.
I already have an upgraded power supply (Antec 650W) and the Phenom II X4 910 processor.
