Lenovo H330 Graphics Card Upgrade

[ Edited ]

I'm using the: LENOVO H330 Desktop PC


I'm planning to get a graphics card for my computer since mines integrated and I want to start playing video games. I've read the manual and it says "AMD Radeon HD 6570M 1GB" is the best upgrade I can get. The problem I’m having is that when I search for this graphics card, I get different brands that come in different shapes and sizes, and the Lenovo H330 has a slim case that won’t fit a normal size graphics card.

 

 

My questions:

1)     Is the "AMD Radeon HD 6570M 1GB" still the best to get for my computer?

2)     How do I know what graphics card would fit into the slim case?

3)     What dimensions should I use when buying a graphics card for my computer?

Hi sykoedis,

 

There's a pretty good answer here.  It doesn't specifically say which card will fit, but it does say what specs the card has to have in order to fit.

 

I also removed your other post as it's in a fairly old thread and we don't want to split discussions.

Re: Lenovo H330 Graphics Card Upgrade

I'm new to this thing so be gentle with me.

 

I've recently purchased a Lenovo H330 and installed my old ATI Sapphire "5570" without any problems. My Windows 7 subscore, with regards to graphics and gaming graphics,  leapt from 4.9 to 6.9.  Pretty much every game or application I have run at it since has run without a glitch. I haven't had any untoward crashes as yet and everything is running stable. I installed the card this morning and so far no problems. I hope that helps.

Hi AnonymousSpec and welcome to the community,

 

It looks like in order to change out the PSU, you would have to change out the case also.

Here's a thread where a member was checking compatibility on doing just that.

 

Regards,

Dave
