Lenovo H515 and 505, graphics card

Hi all,   my son wants to upgrade his PC to a better graphics card.   I have looked online and the card he wants suggests that his PC needs a PCI express based PC  1 X16 lane graphics card slot on motherboard.      As you can probably tell - I am a complete duffer on this stuff,  so I wondered if I could pick the brains of you learned folk and see if someone can advise me?

 

Cheers

Hi DonMaidment,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

 

You will need to look on two things

 

- Compatible Graphics

Here are some compatible graphics adapter from the Lenovo H515 Maintenance Manual

If you are going to purchase a Video card that's not on this list, I suggest you do a test First before purchasing it as I'm not too sure if other Graphics model will work.

- Power Supply

  Your Power Supply must match the Videocard Requirement,

or else you will need to upgrade the power supply as well.

 

Regards
