I'am getting a Gateway DX4860-UB32P and I'am very happy with everything it has except for its graphics, it only has a Intel HD 2000 so I want to know what upgrade I can get before I buy it, since all it has is a 300w PSU best I can really get is this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I wanted to know if this would fit inside the DX4860 since after searching I cannot really figure out how much room the case has or if this card specificly would fit or not. If anyone could help me out with that I would be very happy :D

Rubbish PC and utterly pointless to buy something that poor and then upgrade it. Build your own or have someone build it for you. Vastly better quality overall.

You can build anything from very powerful to very basic . . . .

Actually I would have to say that Smeh45 is very wrong; the Core i3 2120 is actually a very potent CPU and is very quick. Definitely worth upgrading.

There's someone running around on these forums (forgot who it was) with an i3 and a Radeon HD7850 and he gets no bottlenecks.

The 7750 would suit you well, but what are you doing with the PC? Gaming?

I just plan on doing normal school work and playing LoL with friends once in a while. So not really hardcore gaming but a bit. I'm more of a console gamer. I also Plan on doing some animation with Flash and photo editing. So really its perfect for me, I just need to know if it will fit.

The HD 7750 will suit your needs then, you can even play Diablo III on medium to high settings with good FPS. Your PSU will handle it fine as it uses little energy. The card is pretty small and should fit into your case fine.

Does it matter that the DX4860 only has PCI E 2.0 and these card say 3.0?
