I have a dell optiplex 980 desk top computer i need to update my graphic card to play battlefield 3 how do i do this
hello... I see 3 different cases when I search... basically you need Watts in your Power supply to handle any modern graphic card... and in most cases I have had to Upgrade a Power Supply and buy a video card, for the game resolution I plan to Play a game at... when you talk about a Desktop, the power supply can sometimes be a ODD shape or dimension... to get a replacement power supply with more Watts in it... So a New case is Sometimes needed for a higher watt Power supply.

So first determine your existing power Supply watts...
