Upgrading video card in H530s mini tower

2021-02-16, 11:18 AM

Hi all! First post here!

 

I am looking to play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on my H530s. For this i already upgraded memory to 16Gb and the HDD to an SSD drive. Now i need to upgrade the video card to something similar to what Microsoft is recommending:

 

NVIDIA GTX 770 | AMD Radeon RX 570

or 

NVIDIA GTX 970 | AMD Radeon RX 590

 

From what i understand neither of those cards physically fit into the H530s.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on which card to buy so i can play FS2020 on my Lenovo?

 

Thanks,

 

Ton.

Hello @TonMachielsen,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.


Based on the parts page for the machine the cards supported for this machine is the GT720.

 

 

This is a low profile card so if you would like to upgrade the GPU on the machine I would suggest searching for a GTX 700 or 900 series low profile type card.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

Thanks, Jack! Any idea how this card compares to the card suggested by Microsoft? Does the PSU support this card?

GT 720 was the best card when this system sold when new, but is now discontinued, newer cards are available, but we need to know Intel processor model and power supply wattage before making a recommendation.  Open the case and look at the label on the power supply itself (post a photo if in doubt), and run 'sys info' for the processor.
