HELP ME! I have this exact same computer and I purchased a EVGA GTX 950 GPU. I put it in correctly and when I try to use it it shows a black screen that says "multi monitor setting is not enabled"! Should I download some software from EVGA? Should somehow turn of Intel integrated graphics? Please send help internet brethren!

try turning off the integrated graphics.

The LGA1155 socket prebuilt PCs are the most bang for your buck PC to be upgrading. If you want to spend $250 or under on a PC this is the way to go! 1.) Buy a *MINI TOWER ONLY*(NO SFF) Optiplex anything above a 700 model for $50-$140 depending on the CPU, RAM, and HDD quality to fit your needs. Make sure the CPU won't bottle neck the GPU you plan on buying. 2.) Once bought sell the PSU in the prebuilt(for like $10+shipping) 3.) Buy an 80+ rated 500W ($50 dollars max) and put it into the system 4.) The remaining balance buy a used entry level gpu and install it in the system 5.) BOOM gaming PC with amazing performance and value I've done this and this is the only WORTH IT method to buy a prebuilt Otherwise you're better off buying individual used parts and building it from scratch, or if you have the money buy new!

Could you do a video on the Dell Inspiron 545 desktop pc? I have one, I know that it can be upgraded because it used to be my step dads and he upgraded the graphics card I think. But I want to know what other things I could upgrade. Like can I upgrade the motherboard?The ram? Can I upgrade to a better graphics card? Can I use a Niveda Graphics card? What brands of graphics cards and mother boards could I use? Will it support dual monitors? Can I use it as a gaming and live streaming pc streaming for twitch streaming?

I have a HP pavillion p6755sc (from like 2011) with a AMD athlon x4 640, 6 gig ram and 300 watt psu, currently running an amd Radeon HD 6570. Motherboard is The H-Alpinia-RS780L-uATX (Alpinia). I wonder If upgrading to some sort of gtx 1050 is a good idea? After puttningen in ssd, It got some serious speed, will a new gpu make some improvments as well?

I am building myself a gaming PC. Which graphics card is better? The Radeon RX 460, or the GIGABYTE GeForce 1060 3GB?

I did this for my friend. He had a system like this with an i5 7400. He had a 1 TB HDD and a 8 GB of single stick DDR4 RAM, so I threw in the RX 460 and for good measure (simply for faster boot up) I put in a 128 GB SSD since he was on a budget. A couple months later, I added another 8 GB of RAM and now he's got a pretty good gaming system. It's not a beast, but it's still a pretty good one for what he ended up paying it for it all at the end.

Well i transfered my old 2013 hp pavilion into a bigger case, Slammed a new 500 watt power supply in and bough myself a gtx 1060 6gb. It's pretty good now :)
anyone can answer but i have an hp pavilion 550-150 and want to upgrade it, the problem is the psu is wicked low, around 180 watts, could i get away with just a graphics card or do i need to upgrade my psu as well and if so what would you recommend?

Philip Jc Corachea (2 months ago)
So I recently tried to do this myself and your tutorial really helped! I'm just wondering if there were any issues you had to go through with installing the drivers for the RX 460. I've had a lot and I've done a lot of the things I've seen online, but haven't found a solution yet.

Yeah, lower end ones like a GT 1030 or a GTX 1050 would work just fine.
Put together the exact parts on amazon, and it came out to a little over 400 dollars. (Including the graphics card) Dell’s kinda just charging a massive assembly fee

Hello, I am a PC Gamer who has been playing on pc for 6 years now but I have never build a PC instead of building a pc, I bought a pc from best buy, ASUS's G11CD. for like $1200 dollars last summer. I know I could have got more what I paid for if I built a pc but my parents didn't have fate on me that I could build a pc even though it was my money and I was paying through payments. Anyway, it's a year now and I have managed to save around 200 dollars. And I was wondering if I could upgrade my pc (I am not sure if I can upgrade my pc since it's a pre-built) and if so what should I upgrade with only a 200 dollar budget. I feel like my pc has too many lag spikes when playing games like black desert online or GTA 5 and it takes a while for my pc to refresh when I boot it up. Also If I can upgrade my pc what guides should I watch since this is going to be my first time and is it difficult to upgrade a PC's hardware. Here are my specs according to a program called Speccy: Operating System is Windows 10 Home 64-bit, CPU is an Intel Core i5 6400 @ 2.70GHz which is clocks at 28 °C, 8.00GB Single-Channel Unknown @ 1063MHz (15-15-15-36) RAM, Motherboard is an ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. G11CD (LGA1151) which clocks at 119 °C, Graphics Card is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (ASUStek Computer Inc) which clocks at 34 °C, and for Storage, I use 931GB TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 (SATA) which clocks at 37 °C.

Is it possible to fit a GTX 1070 mini inside?
WB IsMe (3 months ago)
You can try but i doubt it will fit. Futhermore, the power supply that comes with it definitely will not have enough wattage for GTX1070.

can this be ugraded to gtx 970-1070?

Is this a good choice for a budget PC? My budget is around 500$, the games I want to play are games like Payday 2, CS:GO, BF4, Arma 3, Cities Skylines, GTA 4,5, Total War, and Destiny 2, Is it good? I'm fine with lowering some settings on the newer titles like Destiny 2 as long as it hits 60 fps I'm fine, is there a risk of the PSU popping?

whats is really nice is i just put a dell i3650 on layaway at walmart that has the i5 6400 in it and it was marked down to 150 so for sub 300 dollars i will have a pc that can play games well with eye candy at 1080p which is amazing for someone who really doesnt have the money to spare atm i just wish i had a little bit more money to build a ryzen system but for now i cant pass this opportunity up since im gaming on a macbook pro itll be a great change of pace, love the vids austin
