Inspiron 545, advise regarding Graphic Card Upgrade.

Dear Dell Forum colleagues,

I have Dell Inspiron 545 with standard specs.

I want to upgrade Graphic Card and found following cards online;

--- ASUS Radeon 4G GDDR5 Graphics-Cards RX 550

--- XFX AMD Radeon RX 460 4GB GDDR5 DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card

--- MSI RX 550 AERO ITX 4Gb OC Graphic Cards

--- Yeston Radeon RX 550 GPU 4GB GDDR5 128bit Gaming Desktop card.

Please advise which card may work with my PC system successfully. if these are not compatible than please tell me while searching for a card, what parameters should i check before purchase.

Further i am looking for 4GB graphic card, i will appreciate if you can advise one,

Does this system will only support LOW Profile card, please also confirm.

Regards

RE: Require advise regarding Graphic Card Upgrade.

We used both full height/short and low profile video cards in the Inspiron 545 with our 300w PSU (power supply unit). But, none were 4GB. The best we offered was =
HWHRN AMD Radeon HD 5670, 1GB

You will need to check with those video cards manufacturer to find out if the 300w PSU will suffice.

Thanks Chris.

That's mean Card's Profile and capacity won't be an issue.

Dell Inspiron 545 will support all the cards that i mentioned above.

However, we need to check PSU from Card's Manufacturer.

am i right.

RE: Inspiron 545, advise regarding Graphic Card Upgrade.

All of the R series Cards are UEFI and do not work with VESA DOS video mode 103 and therefore may not work at all at the bios level EVER.
Radeon 6450 Legacy card would work fine.
There is a specific card that works fine with the all sizes EXCEPT USFF.
Works with XP VISTA 7 8 or 10.

545S requires LOW PROFILE Card.

If the card is too long you may not have a way to plug in.
Physical Fit is an issue.

RE: Inspiron 545, advise regarding Graphic Card Upgrade.

Actually i am interested to buy the following card, look decent.

I checked the dimension etc, but still confused if it can fit, the cards dimensions are;

- Yeston: Dimension: 8.8 x 4.3 x 1.8 inch = 223 x 109 x 45mm.
