Hey guys, I've been planning to upgrade my x51's graphics card for some time. I thought of going with the gtx1050. If that's not a good choice what else? Don't mind the budget. I wanna know all my options.
My system specs - Intel Core i5-2320
(4x3GHz, No Hyper-Threading, Turbo to 3.3GHz, 32nm, 6MB L3, 95W), 2x4GB Hynix DDR3-1333, NVIDIA GeForce GT 545 1GB GDDR5 (OEM)
okay not to sound rude here but simple search would find everthing you need to know.. this topic has been beaten to death constantly lately with the X51 R1 R2 and R3 ...
the only issue is cooling its best to have it like the OEM exhausting out the back, also has to follow the card max size not exceeding it.. (sorry don't have it handy atm) but from my understanding froma buddy with the 1050 it runs fairly cool..
also what PSU do you have? this may neeed to be upgraded aswell
