This is my first post on this forum and I´m sure this topic has been thoroughly discussed, but I don´t have the time to browse through all previous posts so here is my question: I´m using a Lenovo H50-55 90BF00CMT and I ran a perforance test in Windows the other day and the results were very good except when it came to graphics. The two scores for graphics were both 1.0 out of 10! It also said that the graphic processor in my machine is a Radeon R7 and that it has no dedicated graphics card. So I want to get one. It´s not easy for me to know what to go for buying a new card like this on my Bantry CRB AMD A-10 Motherboard. Can someone please help me find a cheap and satisfactory solution so I can get my graphics up above 5 at least?

Listed are OEM reccomended upgrade tested on this model for compatibility and performance as the motherboard and BIOS would work best.
Without any changes with your power supply , you can get those listed as per manual.
Read further on the discussion here to check how fellow members were able to improve their graphics rating not doing much changes , enough for a cheper upgrade at the moment.
Hope this answered your query.

Do you know if Lenovo updates that list or is it pretty set? I bought a Radeon RX550 in hopes that it might work. Having issues with the 4 pin at the moment. Any tips on how I can find a power supply that has the 4 pin ready to go ?
