Upgrading to 970

3 posts in this topic

I'm currently looking to upgrade to a GTX 970, but I bought a pre built PC so I'm not completly clued up on the finer details of componants. I've heard things about compatability and so on, so I thought I would be safer and ask Around about which to buy. This is my current PC: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00CMQWJXQ?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00 and these are the cards I'm looking at (because free games)  

Please respond ASAP

 

PS: If there are any decent tutorials for upgrading/replacing graphics cards, it would be much appreciated

Every 970 is essentially the same, if your system can handle one of them it should handle any of them, as long as you have a PCIe port and enough power to run the card you'll be fine.

 

As for upgrading just pop out the power cords pull out the old card (flip back the fin on the right side if there is one) and put new card in the slot, re-insert needed power cable.
