I have a ASUS z270-A motherboard which has the intel@hd graphics 630
Any recommendations as to whichvideo card would provide a substantial video upgrade. Prefer $100 to $200.

Have 2560x1440 monitor.
One PC has a good gaming card providing 2560x1440
The other doesn't

Is there a low cost video card that will provide the 2560 res, just used for desktop apps and watching a few videos etc.

A simple question. my monitor resoluion is 2560x1440
Will get better picture quality streaming movies etc with a separate card vs the integrated.
I saw an amd rx560 for $100

If I am just using for better resolution I assume that 2gb would be sufficent.
Seems like some of the rx 560 show 2 fans, others 1.
There are also quite a few brands, MSI, xfx and at new egg xfx and asrock.

RX 560: https://www.gigabyte.com/rs/Graphics-Card/GV-RX560GAMING-OC-4GD-rev-10#kf

I like the gigabyte one because it has windforce cooling technology that i have personally used for my R9 380 4gb.The 560 has 4gb gddr5 memory+it looks sick.I wouldnt suggest the 2gb,cuz there is a big gap between 2 and 4 gb for like game requirements.Like in gta V if you max out some settings it will allready eat 2gb of vram,so 4 gb is really a sweet spot

I have a ASUS z270-A motherboard and am trying to add an AMD Radeon rx560 graphics card.

So I installed it in the #1 PCIe 16 slot.
Attempted to run the cards installation software, "no card detected"
Looked in device manager and didn't see it, nor were there any conflicts.
The card has 2 fans, neither are turning.

The bios looks very detailed, is there a list of changes required anywhere ?
