Inspiron 3847, GPU, PSU upgrades?

Jump to solution

I have just received an inspiration 3847. I tried doing a benchmark test to realized that it had no graphics card installed. Wondering what types are compatible with my motherboard. I have also heard from others that a better psu would be needed to run one.  Also how to tell how much psu I can use before I have none.

This forum post should help with which PSU will fit in the system. And this has recommendations for both the PSU and GPU.
