Hi. I'm trying to upgrade my pre-built PC by adding a better graphics card.
Inspiron 3847 Inspiron 3847
i know my my motherboard is 088dt1 and it has a socket 1150
i'm looking at the EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 SSC for an upgrade http://
but i can't find the PCI Express slot on my computer and was wondering if anyone could help me find out whether my computer and this graphics card are compatible

This person installed a GTX 960 in their Inspiron 3847 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7hGPBsnlWs

The GTX 1050 SSC should work. You may want to upgrade your power supply also. I think it comes stock with a 230W. You need at least a 300W+ with a GTX 1050 to be safe.

The guy in the video said he had to find a GPU short enough to fit as the Inspiron 3847 case is shorter than most cases. Be sure it will fit.
