Hello, I'm looking to purchase the GeForce GTX 285 for my HP Pavilion p6313w. Here are my questions:
1. Would the card even work/fit? It says that my computer has a PCI- Express slot, but the card's box says PCI-Express 2.0???
2. Is there a better cuda/Premiere CS5 supported card that I should purchase? My budget is around 200 dollars.
3. ALSO, there is already an integrated gfx card in my computer (NVidia GeForce 9100). Is there a major difference between the integrated card and the card I want to buy? Will I be removing this integrated card and putting in my new card or do I just leave it in there???
Here are some details on my system and the card I've been looking to buy:
Model number p6313w
My possible card purchase:
# GeForce GTX 285 with 648 MHz clock
Don't bother. Get a decent system first and then upgrade to a current card. The 285 is no longer sold and the rest of the system is so underpowered, a 285 will not help, since the rest is choked. And your PSU is not enough to drive that card and HP does not allow installation of a third party PSU.
Here are a couple of details from nVidia on the GTX 285 to back up Harm.
Maximum Graphics Card Power (W) 204 W
Minimum Recommended System Power (W) 550 W
