Following advice from this thread, i want to know what graphics card and gpu to get to make opengl go from 2.1 to 4.0+
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/633364/what-is-needed-to-run-open-gl-40/

 

i do have a PCIe x16 slot, it's red and has 1 small retagle hole, followed by 1 long retangle hole and some soft of flip-like tab at the bottom of it, same as the one shown in google search results. does the nvidia 750 work with that? and do i need to upgrade the gpu for the nvadia to work? if so, which gpu should i get?

A "Nvidia 750" would work (I assume you mean their "GTX 750"), but you could actually go a lot cheaper. A "Nvidia GT 610" would also work, and can be found for around 40$ USD in the US. If you wanted to go with AMD. Their "R5 230" could be had for 40$ USD as well......in the US.  

 

What country are you buying in? 


99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.

This right here would work. Is 50$ and comes with a low-profile bracket in case that's what your computer uses.

 

Suports DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.5, and OpenCL 1.1.

 

EDIT:

Here is the Amazon link for it. If you'd prefer using it instead. 

Here is the manufactures site link for buying it directly from them.
