Will this graphics card work on my computer?

Hi I would like to purchase a new graphics card on my computer because I play minecraft and I only get 30-40 fps. So I have been looking at some graphics card and I was wondering if this one would work on my computer? ------->

My computer specs are:

8GB DDR3 memory

AMD phenom II X4 690T CPU

and this is my current graphics card

Integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200

Thanks!

More about will graphics card work computer
  1. And a 250w PSU
  2. You'll need a new power supply to run even the low power 7750.
  3. Well also do you have the right PSI slots for that? but you will HAVE to upgrade the power supply no doubt
  4. in that link you supplied under "customer reviews" i found this:
    I ripped out the paltry 250w power supply and added a 775w Thermaltake modular PS (a modular power supply is definitely needed due to the limited space in the case). Then I installed two additional 500gb 7200RPM hard drives, as well as an EVGA GTX 560 Ti 2gb graphics card. After install and configuration, there was a marked performance increase...with Windows 7 showing a 7.8 experience score for graphics. The machine also runs very cool.

    For gaming, I can now enjoy playing games at full maximum or near max settings with 1920 x 1080 (i.e. 1080p) resolution (as an example, the graphically intense and jaw-dropping beautiful Witcher 2 runs flawless at absolute maximum **except** I keep 'ubersampling' turned off). I really am quite impressed.

    If you are going to attempt a similar upgrade, please be aware...

    The case is small, but with careful planning, everything will fit as expected and I experienced no unusual hiccups during installation (I cannot vouch for longer graphics cards (10+ inches), but the 560 fit like a champ).

    so yes it can be done. it obviously has an open pci-x slot
  5. Well that answers that but he still doesn't know the right PSU to get I'm sure he has a budget so I don't think he wants to spend 50 just on a good trustful modular power supply without getting his GPU which is also 100
  6. Ok thanks so I just need a new PSU? And is the sapphire radeon 7750 a good card?
  7. Well I'm just gonna go ahead and give my answer if want to get a modular power supply and not worry about space then get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139049 but if you want more power for the same about and non modular then get this http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371045 . Either way your gonna need one of the two because that card requires a 400w power supply and with both power supplies you get a little more power just in case it's needed. But the card you have is good and will work and will max minecraft no problem with 40 to 50+ fps. I really suggest those to because skipping and getting a cheaper power supply and mess your whole computer up if it's not built right and antec and corsair are good company's.
  8. the guy in the post said he needed a modular psu...those arent cheap. heres my suggestion on a nice upgrade. not too expensive.

    http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=78575&vpn=CP%2D9020058%2DNA&manufacture=Corsair

    a great corsair psu with modular plugs for 59$

    http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=74900&vpn=GV%2DR777OC%2D1GD%20Rev2%2E0&manufacture=Gigabyte&promoid=1292

    and a 7770 on sale should push minecrtaft well past 50+ fps

    That's the power supply I suggested him and the one I gave was cheaper... But as far as the card goes is up to him but still I think the 7750 will do just fine for what he wants
  10. Thanks again.
  11. No problem :)
  12. Are there any cards that will get me 70-100 fps on minecraft?
  13. Like within $150
  14. The card he gave the 7770 should get you about 121 fps window mode and about 75 maxed. Maybe this will help http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Hardware_performance
  15. from what i saw here: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Hardware_performance

    the 7770 is pushing 120fps
  16. If you don't want to spend over 150 and want the best for that price and it will beat the 7770 this will beat that and get better fps also with the $20 mail in rebate your only spending 130 and about 4 on shipping http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127710
  17. ya the 650ti is a great card on sale...itll make your computer fly
  18. Also you can still get one of the power supplies we both recommended the card still only needs a 400w power supply
  19. How much better is the gtx 650 ti compared to the 7770?
  20. as you can see here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html the 650ti is only 2 teirs higher than the 7770 and in benchmarks ive seen between the two the 650ti consistantly gets maybe 10-20 fps higher
  21. It is worth the extra 30 in my opinion if you don't want to ever worry about your fps dipping or anything I would get the gtx 650 ti honestly
  22. One last thing is the gtx 650ti compatible with my computer?
  23. Yes it is ^^ should work with no problems as long as you have the right power supply
  24. So I have the right PCI slot?
  25. Yes you do, it should all work no problems
  26. And the SPU will be easy to install?
  27. Depends on which one you go with
  28. Should work fine but do keep in mind like arich5 said "If you are going to attempt a similar upgrade, please be aware...

    The case is small, but with careful planning, everything will fit as expected and I experienced no unusual hiccups during installation" you card will fit just fine but just be careful you should be fine with the card and power supply your getting
  29. Will this psu work good? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817148046

    Just incase I need to get a getter graphics card in the future.
  30. Should work not really a big fan of the company but I have a computer case by them so hah should work fine but it's gonna have more wires to it so just be prepared to have to make it fit
