Compatible GPU upgrade (gaming)

@Brent171, welcome to the forum.

 

The problem that you will have with upgrading the video card is two fold: 1) newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS and yours has a standard BIOS and 2) your power supply unit (PSU) is only 250W.  Most newer cards require a minimum of 300W to operate properly.  The last cards not to require UEFI were the GTX 660/670 series.

 

Your best option is to choose a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your system.  They will save you time and money.  The seller pays to ship the card to you, but you pay to return it if it doesn't work.
