So im looking to upgrade the graphics card in my computer(p6214y). From what ive seen i understand that I will also need to upgrade the PSU as it is only a 300W.
Ive been doing a lot of research over the last several days... but I am lost as I am by no means a computer expert. I found some cards with good reviews that look good and some decent power supplies but what i dont know is if they will fit my system etc...
I would like to play games like diablo 3 trouble free. Im not looking to spend to much maybe about 200$ on the card and about 100$ on the PSU... I dont necessarily need to spend that much if its not needed so cheaper options would be nice too.
Here are three cards that im looking at right nor on NewEgg
This is another card but it mentions overclocking... Can someone explain what that is to me? Is it harmflul to the computer? Someone mentioned in another post about this card that you can control the fan and temp... is that something that you cant do on other cards?
PCIe is backwards compatible, so that card doesn't require you to have 3.0, it just works on 3.0, and so it does on 2.0, 2.1, 1.0, 1.1. You won't see much of a difference 2 gb vs 1 gb unless you go above 1920x1200 resolution.
