  1. Hi, i want to upgrade my graphic card to NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GT but not sure if my computer can handle it. Anyone know how to check it before i buy (motherboard and powersupply wise). Thanks.

    What are your system specs currently, and ... are you planning to upp graphics card on a laptop?

    For an advance indication, before you provide your sys specs, you can check PSU req for any Nvidia Videocard on their website: www.nvidia.com

    Motherboard-wise, we'll need to know what you have already; what kind of laptop mobo do you have?

    i would advise not doing a mobo swap cus it is a huge pain.
