Is it possible to upgrade the graphics card of the Ideacentre 710 25 ISH?

My relatively new desktop came with a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 graphics card, which is fine for low to mid end gaming, but I'm wondering if it's possible to get a better card to play more taxing games/clear up framerate issues. The Geek Squad at Best Buy said it isn't, but the description page for this product on the lenovo website says it's supposed to be easily upgradeable and I stumbled on an amazon review ( https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-ideacentre-710-Desktop-90FB000BUS/product-reviews/B01G7296YU ) that says it can be done with a special adapter, but I'm vague on the details and the link the reviewer apparently provides doesn't show up for me. Can I get a final word on whether I can upgrade the graphics? and if so, how (I'm ok with buying additional hardware if neccessary)?

Hi AggieGAL,

 

By easily upgradeable, i think they are talking about the RAM and Hard Drive. I know the machine can come with a 400w PSU and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960 2GB so it might be worth contacting Lenovo Support and asking about parts.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on
