Wanting to upgrade my graphics card - 11-13-2010, 09:27 AM
Firstly, I know this is a repost, but a mod moved and closed my other thread even though this section is supposed to be discussion about anything.
I've got a HP Pavilion 6127 Desktop PC with an ATI Radeon HD 4350 graphics card, and I'm looking to upgrade, I've got my eye on an ATI Radeon HD 5970, but I was told it is too powerful for my tower.
ATI RadeonĀ® HD 4350, with Avivo technology 512 MB dedicated memory
1TB Hard Drive
Any advice or recommendations that would make a decent upgrade, maybe one that would play Crysis well

Perhaps ask in the gaming section, but as Rich said in your other thread, your power supply almost certainly can't support this card. I looked at the specs for your PC and it's a low-end model.
It's bad form to repost after a mod has closed your thread. It risks you getting banned.

The reason that I closed it is:
1st this is a Dell Mini Forum....ok?
2nd MAYBE if you were asking about a DELL it might be ok, but to come on a board that is specifically for the Dell Minis and ask a question about a graphics card for an HP DESKTOP (not even a laptop), which for one is a non-issue for everyone on this board because the Minis dont even have graphics cards to getting an answer would be rough and there are other boards that would be a better place to ask such a question.....that is why I closed your thread....it is really NOT applicable to this forum......if you have another Dell product such as a Mini or Laptop, (your 10v for instance) feel free to ask anything you want to, but this post is for another site...not here...sorry
If we allowed any question for any PC out there, there would be no reason to call this forum "MyDellMini"..we could just call it "PCHelpDesk" or something but the focus point of this particular forum is for the Dell Minis and related systems...we even get some questions on HP Minis occassionally but that is sort of allowed being as where an HP Mini basically has the same internal parts as a Dell Mini so the questions are usuallu applicable and most likely can be answered properly...I do hope you understand......now if you were asking about your 10v (I checked your previous postings) that would be a different question entirely......I see that you are quite interested in OSX, I do hope the forum was helpful to you for the issues you had in the past
PS. I am closing this thread also......and please do not start another thread (unless it is related to this forums focus)
Sorry, but try to have a nice day anyway and do not take this personally as it is not meant to be..
By the way like Steve said you could have been banned for this, but 1st...you are not a new poster, you do have some history and I really dont see any reason to go that route in this case.
2nd..everyone is allowed a mistake every now and then
but FYI, generally restarting a thread that was closed for a reason is not a good idea
