Graphics card upgrade k100

2008-06-30, 10:17 AM

http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/lenovo/configuration/2410/28.html

 

I have the computer above.  I opened the case and it has a 280 watt power supply.

 

 

The onboard graphics card lets me play some games but only if I turn the settings down all the way.  So I'm trying to get a new card(nothing super expensive)

 

I found this one on sale at bestbuy...Would I be able to use it with my power supply?

I've got the 8600 GT running in mine with the same power supply for a month or so now - no issues.

I just bought a ATI 2400 pro.  I think it was the best card for my psu and for what I'll be doing with it.
