Re: H430 graphic card upgrade

What is the memory size on your GTX 1050?  Because I do see a couple of H430 with 1050 in the benchmarks here (also 750 Ti):   h430-graphics-upgrade-Help-please

Re: H430 graphic card upgrade

If you can try one with 2 GB, I'm reasonably confident it will work.

Re: H430 graphic card upgrade

FYI,

 

Everything I have researched indicates the GTX 1050 Ti 4g should work.  Even through the throughput will not be 8 gb but limited to 5 gb that's not an issue because I am not gaming.  So the board is not the issue.  On another site, a user posted success with this processor: Same gen as the 2300 (see below) GPU is 4g PSU is less than mine and the PCIe is 2.0 (hence the reduction in throughput) So I can only conclude that if the MB and Proccessor support the ti at 4 gb then there must be some issue with the GPU.  I do not have access to another pc to test further and speculating that the mb or cpu is the issue and replace these would simply cost more money without resolving the issue. Already replaced the PSU but that was cleally not the issue.  Appreciate  everyone's input and assitance Smiley Happy

Re: H430 graphic card upgrade

The Lenovo H430 uses a Intel H61 chipset motherboard with a legacy BIOS on a 4MB ROM chip so how can anyone get a GTX 1050 Ti or 2GB that only works with UEFI that needs a 8MB ROM chip to function?
