Hello everyone, I am currently running a acer aspire TC-105 (http://www.cnet.com/products/acer-aspire-tc-105-w-tower-a10-6700-3-7-ghz-10-gb-1-tb/specs/) and wish to upgrade to a better graphics card as for the past 2 years i've been suffering with poor frames in games like counter strike: global offensive, managing an average of around 45 on low settings.
Recently ive purchased arma 3 and on all settings low, i manage between 5 and 15 fps which im sure you can agree is unplayable.
Ive been thinking about upgrading to a EVGA Geforce GT 1030 SC, but im unsure if it would work. My computer is the same as i purchased it, except for a PSU upgrade to a corsair cx600 (600 watts so should be able to run it). ive unmounted my graphics card to have a look and i have a PCIE x16 slot in which the card would go.
I went on a website regarding my card and the one i want and found my old card has a pcie 2.1 x 16, while the new one would be a pcie 3.0 x 4
I just want to know if this graphics card upgrade would work in my pc.
ps. the old card was dedicated and did not have any 6slot 8slot pin things plugged into it,so im not sure if the card would even gain power, however a website said it only used 30 watts from the 18 my card currently uses.
thanks in advance
