Hey Guys! I had a question about my graphics card. Is it possible I can upgrade my computers graphics card? I am hopping to purchase something created by Ge Force but I don't know if my computer could handle it, Or if it would actually allow me to game harder without frame drops and such. If you think my computer can handle it please show me some Graphics cards that I could (should) purchase to get the best results out of my computer. Here are my specs.

Short answer, yes so long (and you should) as you have a pcie port open on the motherboard, it is a snap and very easy to do. Best way would be to look inside and make sure there is one free and slap one in.

Give us a budget and we can go from there.

Looks like you can shove a graphics card in there. But, we need a photo of the power supply, or the specs of it. Need to see what the most powerful card you can put in there.

Yeah the PSU will be an issue. The PC is very new so putting a GPU in will not be an issue.
