Solved What is the best GPU for my motherboard?

August 23, 2014 at 03:46:07
Specs: Windows 7, Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 / 3.20 GHz / 8 GB Ram
Hi, I have a slightly dated computer, and I want to install a better GPU.
I am not exactly the best at computing stuff, so and I don't wont to buy something incompatible.

My motherboard is an AsRock H55M-GE, and my current GPU is an NVidia GT 440.

Any help would be appreciated.

Well, the GTX 750 that Fingers suggested has a minimum system requirement of 300 Watts, so I think you'll be good with a 450 Watt PSU.

And your power supply does have 1x 6 pin PCIe power connector, so you'd be OK there if you chose to go with something a little higher.

Any Graphics Card that uses a PCIe slot (which is all modern ones) will work it your motherboard.

It really depends on what your budget is and what you'll be using the Graphics Card for.

Personally, I'm a fan of AMD cards, but it just comes down to your personal preference.

Just note, that Motherboard is mATX, so if your case only supports mATX you might have some trouble fitting a higher end Graphics Card into it.

Also, what is your power supply? Some higher end Graphics Cards require more PCIe power connectors, so you might not be able to power them if you have a lower end PSU.

Look into the GTX750 and GTX750Ti models as they are more energy efficient than most other GPU's and often can be run with stock power supplies. Which one will depend on your uses, your budget, and your room. These two I listed are rather short by today's standards for gaming cards but use a double slot so make sure that you have the height as well as the free slot next to the card. If your case is a compact one, you may need a low profile card as well. The GTX750 is a decent entry level gamer and will support most non-gaming video uses very well and the GTX750Ti will handle most of today's games at reasonably high settings. Neither of these (except a few overclocked versions) require the auxiliary PCIe power connectors.
Post system specs and include your power supply's specs (even if you have to open the system and copy it from the label on it)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Sorry for taking so long to answer... I have been quite busy lately.

My power supply is an Altis A-450CX...
