Community Article powerspec g434 CPU cooler noisy fan — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › General Discussion powerspec g434 CPU cooler noisy fan Dilbert3k ✭ June 2020 in General Discussion I just bought a powerspec g434 and the fan on the ligquid cooler is making a lot of noise. What fan do I need to order to replace it? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin June 2020 Could you describe in a little more detail the type of noise you're getting? Is it like a grinding or clicking, or is it just the normal fan noise, but a little too loud for your preferences? The cooler used in the G434 is the Cooler Master ML240L, which uses 120mm fans. Any other standard 120mm fan should fit if you wanted to replace them yourself, but if there's something wrong with one of the fans, we would want to have our service desk verify that and either exchange the unit or replace the fan under warranty.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Dilbert3k ✭ June 2020 Its a grinding noise. Sounds like a fan that is dying. I'd rather not lose my computer for days to get a fan replaced. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin June 2020 Yeah, if it's something like grinding then it's likely it's just a bad fan. Computer systems we sell come with a 15-day return period, so if you're still within that you're always welcome to just exchange it instead.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JJGonz ✭ June 14 I purchased a new PowerSpec G464 last year (July 2020) and its been about a month now that I am hearing this grinding noise. Is this noise coming from a fan? how do I fix this? I am little disappointed that in less than a year I have to replace a part. I still have a Dell XPS that I bought many years ago that did not have any issues at all. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin June 14 @JJGonz just chiming in. Sorry you are hearing a grinding noise coming from the Powerspec. We'll need to troubleshoot. It could be a fan or something else.

Per your specs, we'd advise to stick with the simulation recommended or high-end requirements. So for a 6 core processor and 16 gigs of ram on a laptop will cost more than the slightly higher than average laptop pc.

It is a big part of my job. I have had the one I use now for about 8 years, at least 3 years past when I should have replaced it, just because it is painful to change and get setup. I am not anxious to just spend a lot of money, but also don't want to replace it every year. I put together a list of how I use it, what I have now, and options I have looked at, which helps me understand what I think is important to me. Is this something I can post here and get help? I just need something that won't lag behind and keep up with me.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin December 2020 Lastlap1 said: I struggling with what new laptop to purchase.

I will need to consider the cost of a power source for each location and for traveling. • Web Meetings often • Transferring Files between Phone Computer Items reviewed: • Processor: 10th Gen i7 - 10750 2.6 Ghz Processor – What else should I consider? What will help me with speed in my applications? Benefit / Cost • Hard Drive: 512GB NVME M.2 SD This seems to Best Drive for Speed? Present Computer presently has 296GB Used. Should I consider SATA drive for safety/dependability? • Ram: 16GB or 32GB – 2933SDRAM or 3200SDRAM – Are there other specs to consider that will help with my applications? If I don’t get 32GB, it seems I should verify I can upgrade? • Graphics: ? (I don’t think I need much, look what I have, I always wished it was just a little better) • Operating System: MS 10 Home or Pro? (I have had Windows 7 Pro, but not sure how Pro makes a difference). • Wireless: WiFi 6 seems to be the latest/fast? I have 6 Network Drives Mapped that I VPN to full time when connected to the Internet. I exchange large files often with these drives. • Bluetooth: Transfer files between Phone and Laptop. How do Bluetooth levels differ? (5.0, 5.1) • Battery: I would like to get at least 4 hours when on the Battery. • Webcam: Need Webcam - Cam shutter seems like a nice option if available. • Connections: o ThunderBolt - Connection seems like a good option for multiple location connections? o HDMI - Connection used many times at work and traveling. o USB Port - I always have two drives plugged in at one location. I want to increase the File Transfer speeds. Having one extra for Thumb Drive would also be nice. But maybe I could accomplish it with an adapter? • Monitor: o I have a 15.6” now; it seems to be a good balance to travel with. Better resolution would help. Touch Screen seems like a good option for marking-up Drawings and Pictures, but it seems like I would want the screen to flip around to use this feature? I would consider this is an optional feature. o Not being able to view the screen from an angle also seems like a nice feature while traveling. • Keyboard: o Backlit is a feature I wished I had many times while traveling. o Numeric Pad on Keyboard is used a lot. • Present Computer: o ProBook 4540s 64bit Operating System Running Windows 7 o I7-3632QM 2.20GHz o 8GB Ram o AMD Radeon HD 7650M Graphics (This almost was good enough, it just needed a little improvement) o Weight is 6.0lbs (This is acceptable but no heavier. I little lighter would be nice.) o Multiple applications run extremely slow, and File transfer is slow, Boot-time extremely slow, Screen Resolution was inadequate. Linking to Phone for file transfer did not work well. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Lastlap1 ✭ December 2020 Ian, If this is something that you can use to help me choose the correct Laptop for me, I can email it to you as a PDF. Just think it is easier to read. When I paste it on here it seems to all blend together. The PDF is in Bullet Points. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin December 2020 Hello @Lastlap1 just chiming in. We have some selections for you. You want to go with a SSD drive and not SATA. Solid state give better performance for the PC. For all of the multi-threading, CAD and multiple programs opened simultaneously, you may want to go with 16gb or preferably 32 gb of memory. With an I7-10th gen processor, 32 gigs will give you all the speed and performance you need for all of the things you'll be doing for your job. I'm not sure you need a laptop with thunderbolt. I saw the HP Probook 4540 didn't have thunderbolt. So unless you have a thunderbolt only monitor or a thunderbolt only storage device, we'd recommend to exclude thunderbolt ports as a requirement for your new laptop. Most laptops we have only support Thunderbolt 3 anyway. Same scenario mentioned above applies to Thunderbolt 3 monitors and storage devices.  No worries about the differences between bluetooth 5.0 vs 5.1, its all bluetooth. But there is a link below on bluetooth if you'd like to know the difference. There really isn't to much of difference as to why we say bluetooth is bluetooth no matter if its 5.0 or 5.1. Take a look at these links below at recommended laptops. They're going to range between $999 to $1500. If want something cheaper, you'll have to go with lesser RAM/Memory, a slower CPU processor, etc. Look at the Dell XPS 15 9500, this has 16gig of RAM/Memory but it can be upgraded to 32gig of memory. Its the only laptop that meet your requirements that has a touchscreen.  https://www.microcenter.com/product/623604/dell-xps-15-9500-156-laptop-computer---silver  Look at the HP Omen 15 Gaming laptop. It has 16 gig of ram but could be upgraded. It does NOT  have touchscreen. https://www.microcenter.com/product/623207/hp-omen-15-dh1054nr-156-gaming-laptop-computer---black  Look at another HP Omen 15 it has 32gig of ram.

I couldn't find a case with an optical drive bay (want to reuse existing) -- I like: Corsair Carbide Series 100R Silent Edition Quiet Mid Tower Case, Solid , but want to know if compatible (not on MC, so would have to buy on Amazon) 2. I like Scythe Mugen 5 Rev.B CPU Air Cooler, but have no idea on ease of install or if better choice exists. 3. I am reusing optical drive and HD from existing Dell XPS (also not on MC) but am interested in MC pro build. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin February 2 Hello, @JDW. Yes, the build you've selected will work well, however, I'd ask a few things. What do you have in mind for this build? What's your budget, and what monitor do you plan to pair with this? 1. The case you've mentioned would be compatible with this build. I'd recommend either, https://www.microcenter.com/product/508331/thermaltake-v100-atx-mid-tower-computer-case---black or https://www.microcenter.com/product/404779/corsair-carbide-200r-atx-mid-tower-computer-case---black 2. The Scythe Mugen 5 Rev.B is compatible with the motherboard and CPU you've selected. 3. We can still offer MC Pro Build for your selection. Please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy to discuss this further with you! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JDW ✭ February 4 Thanks for the response. I am using machine for programming and casual gaming (not cutting edge). I am very sure a middle/high build like this will be suitable for me and have longevity.  I am waiting for crazy prices to subside to buy a GPU. I will use my existing Radeon HD 7800 to get by for now. I have finalized my selections to include Corsair carbide  100R  (for quiet). I like the 200R, but it is bigger than my limited desktop would allow for.  Having watched some Carey Holzman videos using same components I am going for self-build. If I get into trouble, I may contact you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 4 Yeah, I think you've got a great build for that! I might suggest a more powerful PSU, but the CPU and RAM you selected will support your programming quite well! We're happy to help if you do need help!

What will it cost to replace the screen (Dell Part Number 53MPX)? Do you have this in stock at St. Louis Park? And a new battery (Dell part number 07G07). Do I need an appointment for this service? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin May 2020 edited May 2020 Hello @Raj! Welcome to the Community.  It appears we don't have those batteries currently in stock at the St. Louis Park store, however, if you bring your laptop to the service desk they should be able to order a replacement. I'm not sure exactly what it would cost, laptop batteries can cost anywhere from $50-100+ depending on the specific computer and battery. I would expect this one to be $80-100 or so.  For the screen, we would have to order those parts from Dell as we don't carry them on the shelf. Labor charge for screen replacement is $99.99, plus the cost of the screen itself. Since we have to get the parts from Dell, I can't look up the cost unfortunately.  We are currently not taking appointments, it's all walk-in and drop off 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Raj ✭ May 2020 Thanks. If I order the screen, can I drop it off with the laptop for installation? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin May 2020 To be honest I'm not sure. I believe with laptops we don't install user supplied parts, but I could be wrong about that. If you could private message your contact information I could get your information to the service desk at your store to have them reach back out to you.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Raj ✭ May 2020 I am looking for links to send a PM- don't see it 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 812 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Difficult varies by the model but it's typically a pretty quick process and the keyboards on basic Inspiron models are generally cheap. Stop in with the laptop and we can get a keyboard on order. You can use an external USB keyboard in the meantime. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Super20 ✭ June 2020 If I bought it in late March, wouldn't it still be under warranty?  Do I need an appointment? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin June 2020 If it was a new-in-box laptop it come with a 1-year warranty so it'd still be well within that time period.  If it was refurbished, those come with 90-day warranties, so depending on exactly what you mean by late March we'd have to check the exact date.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 813 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Almost any graphic card can work with miracast. Now if your are planning to do some heavy video game streaming, than you'll need a graphic card to handle the video games not miracast.

I looked up the GPUs you recommended and they all seem to be gaming related. I am using my PC primarily for work, and don't really watch movies with it (sometimes I'll stream a ball game while I work) but I'm not looking for the robust capabilities of a gaming GPU. Listening to your advice I did more digging with the NVIDIA Quadro 600. I found great articles about using 2.4 Ghz wifi and another article guiding me through indicators to look for through various reports. All those systems were a go, but it still was not working. I contacted NVIDIA this morning, and LSS - NVIDIA does not support Miracast. I'd recommend changing your advice to NVIDIA GPUs will not Miracast. Does MicroCenter offer work-abled GPUs or are you focused on the gaming market? I don't know the ins and outs of computers which is why I'm seeking help. I'm looking for a GPU under $200 that will work with a Dell computer box and CPU. My apologies for sounding like a Richard in this email, but I am a little frustrated at your answer for not listening to my ask. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook HAMMERTIME ✭ April 29 Alright, what you needs depends on your work, but from what it sounds like, you could buy something like the GT 710. It is cheap, and fairly good. $69 https://www.bestbuy.com/site/pny-geforce-gt-710-2gb-pci-express-2-0-graphics-card-black/5092306.p?skuId=5092306 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 30 @BullKitty my apologies for the confusion. You had mentioned miracast and adding a graphic card, I wrongfully assumed you were needing the GPU for video games. I'm sorry I did not fully understand what you are trying to do. Yes I am finding out certain Nvidia cards no longer support Miracast with windows; although it used to be supported. For the DeLL T5600 which looking up the specs, it may have the Quadro K4000 GPU by Nvidia in it and it probably doesn't work with miracast; as to why you came to our forum for a legitimate answer from us. It seems that Intel integrated graphics seems to work best with miracast now. As of now Intel doesn't have single graphical processing unit, but they are coming out with a GPU later this year. You may have to look at the alternatives or programs that work similar to miracast that can work with your Dell and nvidia graphic cards. Mirror display software like Squirrels Airparrot, ApowerMirror or Microsoft's EasyCast all works similar to Miracast and works with nvidia. Another option to connect your Dell T5600 to your TV is using a VGA male to HDMI male adapter. You can hardwire your Dell to your TV, assuming you are wanting to show your Dell T5600 display on your TV. Let me know if this helps. Again I apologize for the confusion and frustration. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 813 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I thought on the sight they cover for "spills and accidental damages" as that is what the protection plan notes on the website. Could I have some clarification on why I was not offered or even notified of other protection plans? Seems a little shady to do to loyal customers. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin January 22 Hello @DaveAdam Welcome to the community! I'm assuming that you're inquiring about our protection plans and replacement plans as we do have two different types of plans available. If you're referring to our Replacement Plan, that would cover hardware defects and failure under normal operation of the device. If you've purchased an Accidental Damage or Handling Plan, that would cover normal operation as well as from failures resulting from, liquid spills, drops, and bumps. If you have your reference number from your receipt I would be happy to look further into this for you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 812 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I a previous attempt I tried to restore the disk to a previous  time and got message "Windows has detected file system corruption on OS(C:) You must check disk for errors."  I checked the disk and ran into similar issue.  I had a dialog box stating "Scanning and repairing"  I let it run for ~ hour with no progress beyond ~25% completion so I gave up and powered down. Was hoping to get a quote on services to consider taking into Micro Center or paying $99 to Dell for support for out of warranty.  Any response would be appreciated.  I was hoping to avoid taking into store just to get a quote on cost to troubleshoot. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSPhillipT admin August 2020 Hello @swc65 This laptop came with Windows 8.1, did you ever update to Windows 10?   For our service, we would start with a $39.99 diagnosis to check whether it's a hardware issue with the drive or if it's an issue with a corrupt Windows Installation.  You will then be contacted about what the diagnosis is and the cost for repair past the diagnosis.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 I do not believe it was updated to Windows 10. It’s my son’s so not totally sure.  I’ll plan to bring in for diagnosis.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 I did some additional work and ran Dell ePSA diagnostics. It identified the following error with Hard drive  I also did a check disk and results are poste below  so I think my hard drive is gone   I’m capable of replacing hard drive but not sure what to do with OS. Computer originally purchased with Win 8.1. But my son claims we upgraded to 10. Is there a way I can check that?  The OS on the ePSA indicated OS test passed but didn’t tell me what is was.  How can I determine what OS I had. Am I correct that the license is in the BIOS and will apply license when I successfully reload OS? i know how to make a bootable USB and have tried both Win 8.1 and Win10 before I found the EPSA diagnostics.  However I’m unsure of how the USB should be formatted NTSF or exFAT.  Do I try load both OS after I replace hard drive? And see which one works.     0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 That error is a pretty clear indication the hard drive is about to go. The license would be digitally embedded in the BIOS, you are correct about that, and it should be detected automatically. We don't have to way to see if the license was previously upgraded, but if you can remember what the OS looked like, I could tell you if it was running on Windows 10 before. When you were on the main desktop screen and clicked the start button on the bottom-left corner, did it just open up a menu with a list of apps you could open, or did it take you to an entirely new window with a bunch of tiles for different apps? If it's the former, you were on Windows 10, if it's the latter, you were on 8.1.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Thanks for your help. It’s my son’s computer so I can’t answer. I’ll run that by him.  If you’ll indulge a few more questions I’d appreciate it.  Current 4MB Ram Pic below.  Current HD pic below.  Processor 338-BCWJ : Intel Pentium processor 2127U (2M Cache, 1.9 GHz) Son uses for some games and Music scoring.  Dell Inspiron 15-312,~6 years old.  Question is what 1) HD would you recommend I go back in with? 2) Does processor support more RAM?  I have another slot open. Would that change performance much?   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 That's a normal  2.5" SATA drive so any 2.5" SATA HDD or SSD would work. Personally I'd recommend getting an SSD since that'll be a big performance boost for the system and make it generally run a lot faster.  More RAM can help if you're currently maxing out your RAM usage. If you're only at 4GB currently, I'd say it'd be worth it to upgrade to 8GB since 4GB is pretty limited even for normal use because of how RAM hungry modern web browsers can be at times.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Great!  Thanks for quick response. Any particular brand of SSD to avoid?   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Oh and one more question, when formatting USB do I pick NTSF or eXFAT?  When making bootable USB drive.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 edited August 2020 When making a bootable USB drive it should automatically reformat itself anyway but if it asks you to pick one choose NTFS since that's the native Windows filesystem.  As for the SSD, I'm not aware of any SSDs that are known to be particularly bad. I would look at Samsung, Inland and Crucial brand SSDs.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Thank you so much. I formatted USB NTFS initially as that was default but then read it should be FAT32. My only other choice was exFAT.  Even with corrupt HD should I be able to boot up to a properly formatted USB drive? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 Yes, if you're booting directly to a USB then the HDD is not involved at all.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Ok thanks. I’ll try again because I never got windows to to boot. Since I don’t know for sure which OS then I’ll try both.  Anything on Set up I should be aware on BIOS boot mode when attempting to to boot to USB?  Legacy Boot Mode or UEFI? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 You'll want to be set to UEFI mode, otherwise just make sure that you set the USB as your primary boot device instead of the HDD.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Got it 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 813 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

These pictures were very helpful. Based on your system you would have a 250-watt power supply. Now, I actually would not recommend upgrading the power supply in the system. You should be able to use this Radeon HD 5450 graphics card: https://www.microcenter.com/product/462019/visiontek-radeon-hd-5450-low-profile-passive-cooled-2gb-ddr3-pcie-21-graphics-card You do not need any extra cables from the power supply as it will be powered directly from the PCIe slot.

Just one more question, how much of an upgrade would this be in graphics compared to what my computer currently has? A card like this I would consider more of a desktop graphics card (for additional monitor purposes). Not saying gaming is impossible, you can play older games on it and possibly newer titles at lower resolutions and low/minimum settings.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 813 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Do you have an adapter that works for this? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer TSMikeW admin May 2020 Accepted Answer Three rows could be DVI or VGA. VGA is three rows of five. The port is generally color coded blue. DVI is generally color coded white. There would be on one side it'll have a dash or a blade pin, possibly with four pins around that if it's DVI-I.  Either way it's going to be an HDMI to DVI or VGA adapter which we do carry.
