Question about Computers & Internet
I am thinking about upgrading my graphics card and was wondering how I can find out what ones are compatable with my motherboard.
Usually the manufacturer's site will have some sort of list, but really, you can generally figure it out for yourself. First, find out what kind of graphics card slot your motherboard has. If it is relatively new, it will probably have PCIe (other options are AGP or just PCI). Next, find out how much power the card you want will draw, and figure out if your Power Supply Unit (PSU) will have enough juice to run it. If you have a card in mind, just post a link to the card, and one to your system (or if you built it yourself, to the site for your motherboard and PSU), and I'll do the math :)
But honestly, short of slot type and power supply, there isn't a whole lot that will actually prevent you from choosing whichever card you want.
