Hello Guys,

I have a Inspiron 580s desktop. Currently, I am using the MSI Radeon HD R5 450 graphic card. However, recently i start to develop game using Unreal Engine, the graphic card perform so badly. It even take hours to build up the lighting and rendering.
I am think to change my Graphic card to Gigabyte GT 1030 low profile. I wonder whether my inspiron 580s motherboard could support the graphic card? If the motherboard could not support GT 1030 any card suggestion?

This is my computer spec

GiGabyte GT 1030

Im using the intel i3 550 3.2Ghz processor.
I would appreciate if anyone could give me an answer.

It should be able to handle the gt 1030 as it has a 16x pcie slot
I am a bit worried about its crappy 250W psu as the 1030 requires 300w even though the R5 has similar psu requirement doesn't mean it is safe to keep using the same psu
