A fast graphic card for gaming to install on HPE-521it

HPE-521it
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I am an owner of a HPE-521it and I wish to upgrade my graphic card.

 

Actually I have a Sapphire HD 7770, AMD Radeon R7 200 series,1 GB GDDR5 128 bit Memory Bus graphics card PCI Express 3.0 that functions properly, but it is quite slow.

 

 

I tried to install these 4 graphic card, but all of them without success:

 

- Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti WINDFORCE OC 4 G 4 GB of memory GDDR5 128 Bit graphic card PCI Express 3 HDMI/DP/DVI - VIDEO SIGNAL YES, FREEZE ON BIOS SCREEN

- Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 560 Radeon RX 560 4GB GDDR5 - graphics card (AMD, Radeon RX 560, 3840 x 2160 pixels, 1300 MHz, 4 GB, GDDR5) - NO VIDEO SIGNAL AT ALL

- Gigabyte R9 380X graphics card 4GB, Gaming - NO VIDEO SIGNAL AT ALL

- Sapphire VGA Sap Radeon R7 360 graphics card da 2GB, GDDR5 - NO VIDEO SIGNAL AT ALL

 

 

I have this power supply: KRAUN, model PE600FCA, max output power: 700W, DC OUTPUT: +5V ==/25A, +3,3V==/22A, +12V1==/16A, +12V2==/16A, -12V==/0,3A, +5V SB==/2,5A

 

I have this motherboard: PEGATRON CORPORATION - 2AB6 - 1.04 - BIOS VERSION: AMI 7.15 (lastest bios avaiable) with 16GB of memory installed.

 

 

Could kindly someone suggest me a fast graphic card that for sure functions properly with my HP ?

 

Possibly a pair of choices....

 

 

Thanks in advance for the attention.

Hi,

 

The BIOS in your PC is only legacy so you will need to stick with a legacy graphics cards.

 

The NVIDIA GTX 660 or 660TI will be higher performing graphics cards compared to the graphics cards that you mentioned.  You should be able to find them on Ebay.

 

The AMD 7950 would be another choice and would be faster than the NVIDIA GTX 660TI.

Hi,

 

thanks a lot for yoiur answer, you are very kind.

 

I took a look at the graphic cards you mentioned me but all of them seems hard to find (I wish to buy a new card, not a pre-owned one).

 

I found on eBay these used graphic cards:

 

http://www.ebay.it/itm/evga-geforce-gtx-660-ti-3gb-Prezzo-trattabile-/202046887022?hash=item2f0aeed4...

 

http://www.ebay.it/itm/EVGA-GeForce-GTX-660-Ti-FTW-Signature-2-/172855721202?hash=item283f00fcf2:g:-...

 

http://www.ebay.it/itm/SAPPHIRE-AMD-RADEON-HD-7950-OC-WITH-BOOST-DUAL-X-3GB-modello-11196-19-20G-/20...

 

What do you think about them ?

Which one should be the best ?

 

Anyway the main doubt is if that the grafic card will functions properly on my PC, are you pretty sure of this ?

I don't wish to buy a graphic card that I cannot return in case it does not works on my system...

 

Are there eventually other fast graphic cards that could functions with my PC ?

 

Thanks a lot for the attention.

Hi,

 

Do some measuring inside and make sure that the make and model of the graphcis card that you want to buy will fit. You may have to send an inquiry request to the seller to get the size measurements.

 

The NVIDIA graphics cards in the past have been compatible with many of the older HP PCs.

 

Know what the return policy is before you buy.
