I need a new graphics card and the game I'm looking to play is Champions Online. The problem is that I have had problems fitting in a graphics card. Awhile ago I bought a Nvidia Geoforce 8400 graphics card but couldn't fit it into my computer. My computer is a Compaq Presario SR5414UK. The compaq presario has a PCIe slot and the card was PCIe, so why couldn't I fit it in?
Well one reason could obvoulsy be because I simply haven't tried properly. I have actually seen a motherboard for my computer and it looked slightly different, everytime I have tried to add the card there is a component that seems to get in the way.
If there is something different about my motherboard are there ways of going around it? I hear you can use a PCIe wireless card or a wireless USB dongle. Also my computer has one PCI slot, would there be any problems buying a PCI card instead of a PCIe one. I can't forsee any problems with me fitting the PCI card there is plenty of free space.
Bare in mind I know my current card isn't powerful enough to play CO but the problem is if I can't fit that card in I won't be able to fit another one. I don't want to buy an expensive card that I can't fit. Could anyway suggest a decent graphics card as well I don't want to spend more £50.
