Simple Graphics for ThinkCentre Edge 72 3493 - what works?

2019-05-13, 16:34 PM

All I need to keep using this machine is an HDMI output, but I know diddly-squat about graphics cards!

Will an Asus GeForce GT 710 1GB DDR3 Graphics Card (less than £30) do the trick? It appears to be OK as PCI Express 2.0 will work in PCI Express 1.0 slot, just at a lower speed?

Appreciate any advice, many thanks.

Solved! See the solution

Your system, with H61 Chipset, has PCIe ver 2.0, be sure to get a card that's low-profile to fit the SFF case.  If you go to the Lenovo support page for your system, then downloads, display and video drivers, the readme file for the Nvidia driver has a list of supported adapters.
