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?

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.
