I am looking to upgrade
I would like to upgrade my HP Digital Entertainment Center z540's video card. I simply would like to upgrade for a better gaming experience. The video card I am looking at is the eVGA e-GeForce 7800 GT CO 256MB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, VIVO. I have recently looked inside the z540 and it appears that this particular card will not fit, or will it? To me it doesnt look like it will fit inside the computer, but that is my question...will it fit? Also if the card does not fit are there compact versions of the card on the market and if not, would it be possible to purchase a regular pc case and transfer my HP z540's components to that one?
Well, first. Does your computer have the right slot? It must have a PCI-E, not just PCI. Second, you most likely will be able to transfer to another case, but you should find out what size case you need. When you upgrade to the better card, you may also need to upgrade your PS, so keep that in mind as well. And finally, I don't think they make compacted verisons of the 6600Gt; atleast, not yet.....
