Greetings,

I am looking to upgrade my video card and need some advice. I am running an HP Envy, CPU is an AMD FX-6200 and the motherboard is a Gigabyte 2AC8 with 10 gig of DDR3 ram. The graphics card is currently an AMD Radeon HD 7570, which i believe is an integrated oem card. Is it possible to upgrade the card and if so, does anyone have any advice on some good cards in the $100-$200 range?

Thanks much,

Todddster

Is this your motherboard?  I've never heard of that motherboard being sold to normal end-users, so it's a bit difficult to find it.  The Radeon 7570 is not an integrated graphics card since it is paired with an FX-6200.  What is the wattage of your PC's power supply?  There are a number of good GPU options in the $100 to $200 range.

Assuming your case is large enough to handle it, the EVGA 02G-P4-2966-KR GeForce GTX 960 Gaming 2GB would be a good choice in that price bracket.
