Updgrade Video Graphics Card

Unread post by tomtobin »

To all,

I am interested in upgrading my graphic card from what I currently have that would be moderately priced ($250-$350).

My current set up is as follows:

Dell Computer
Inspiron 3847
Device: Desktop - BVSMMEP
Processor: Intel(R) Core ™ i7 4790 CPU 3.60GHz 3.60 GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 16.0 GB
System Type: 64-Bit Operating System x 64 based processor
Pen and Touch: No Pen or Touch available
Windows Edition: Windows 10
Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 705.0

I know nothing about graphic cards other than NVIDIA cards seem to be the most prevalent on the market.

I primarily fly FXE Steam (but know MS FS 2020 is out there) and am looking into DSL to try; I usually fly a couple of hours a week and am not into gaming.

And will have my Son in Law change out my card so that gives you an idea (I hope) of my computer technical skills (or lack thereof).

Hope that helps.

Excellent card. Refurbished is fine. In your price class.

Hi Tom;
What I`m afraid is your motherboard supporting such a Vid Card. I sincerely don`t like Dell PCs. I had 2 or 3 and everytime I was upgrading Vid Cards, I was getting Crashes.
I build my from now on.
