Lenovo H330 Graphics Card Upgrade

[ Edited ]

I'm using the: LENOVO H330 Desktop PC


I'm planning to get a graphics card for my computer since mines integrated and I want to start playing video games. I've read the manual and it says "AMD Radeon HD 6570M 1GB" is the best upgrade I can get. The problem I’m having is that when I search for this graphics card, I get different brands that come in different shapes and sizes, and the Lenovo H330 has a slim case that won’t fit a normal size graphics card.

 

 

My questions:

1)     Is the "AMD Radeon HD 6570M 1GB" still the best to get for my computer?

2)     How do I know what graphics card would fit into the slim case?

3)     What dimensions should I use when buying a graphics card for my computer?

Re: Lenovo H330 Graphics Card Upgrade

Hi sykoedis,

 

There's a pretty good answer here.  It doesn't specifically say which card will fit, but it does say what specs the card has to have in order to fit.

 

I also removed your other post as it's in a fairly old thread and we don't want to split discussions.

Re: Lenovo H330 Graphics Card Upgrade

I'm new to this thing so be gentle with me.

 

I've recently purchased a Lenovo H330 and installed my old ATI Sapphire "5570" without any problems. My Windows 7 subscore, with regards to graphics and gaming graphics,  leapt from 4.9 to 6.9.  Pretty much every game or application I have run at it since has run without a glitch. I haven't had any untoward crashes as yet and everything is running stable. I installed the card this morning and so far no problems. I hope that helps.

Thanks,

Hi AnonymousSpec and welcome to the community,

 

It looks like in order to change out the PSU, you would have to change out the case also.

Here's a thread where a member was checking compatibility on doing just that.

 

Regards,

Dave
