Hello everyone, unfortunately my graphics card has gone tits so looking for a new one. the pc i bought came with a BFG Nvidia gtx 285, and have been looking at other Nvidia cards. the pc has an ASROCK H61M-VS motherboard in it and as i dont know a huge amount about pc's was wanting to know if i could put an AMD gpu in it?

This is a link to info on my motherboard (http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/H61M-VS/?cat=Specificati...).

Your help would be much appreciated on this

What PSU do you have (brand and model, not just wattage)? You want to be sure it is enough for whatever graphics card you get.

Well if it had a GTX 285 running it, then it can probably run anything else...
What's your budget?

If the PSU was being redlined, it may have contributed to the death of the GPU.

If your thinking of going for an AMD card Id suggest one of the 7000 series as their faster and much more efficient, for example if your looking for gaming performance you can start anywhere from a 7850 and move up to 7950 with less power consumption than your recently deceased GTX 285 and significantly more Graphics Horsepower.

Thx for replies. my psu is a corsair TX650 which is new as psu went aswel think it might have been a surge. was looking at spending £140-150.

Or better yet you could go with a 6950 which is around the same price but faster though make sure it's the 2GB version, and if you get lucky you can unlock it into a 6970, though at your own risk! As things can go wrong.

Just though I'd put some temptation out there for you!haha
