X51-R1, Want to upgrade from Nvidia GeForce GTX 645

Jump to solution

I have the X51-R1, with the i3-3220 CPU @3.30GHz processor.  I'm interested in upgrading my video card and was looking for recommendations, decently priced. I'm not a heavy gamer (Minecraft, WoW) but I do a lot of streaming of HD video.  I'm also running dual-monitors because I work from home. Any suggestions would be great. 

Thanks for your time.

You have the R1. The R2 did not ship with the i3-3220. You cannot use any video card that uses more than 150w on our 330w power supply. The video card must not be bigger than 9.5" x 4.3". I can only recommend the Dell OEM video cards =

FPDH3 Nvidia GeForce GTX 660, D15P2-40 V2, 1.5GB, DVI-I/DVI-D/DP/HDMI

106DK AMD Radeon R9 270, RD14D-P1-70, 2GB, DVI-I/DVI-D/DP/HDMI

After digging around, neither of the options that were provided are available, not even in the Dell store.

Any further suggestions woudl be great.  As a side note, I'm currently using dual-monitors as well.

Thanks in advance.
