Hi I just got an old custom pc that has a lenovo is6xm motherboard with a Gigabyte GV-R6850C-1GD GPU. I would like to upgrade the Gpu but i have no idea if it will be compatible to the build.
Here is the Build:
Mobo: Lenovo IS6XM
Processor: Intel Core i5-2500 CPu @3.30 Ghz
RAM: 14GB
GPU: Gigabyte GV-R6850C-1GD
Powersupply: THermaltake TR2 430W
(I'm sorry I'm new to computers)
My budget is around CAD 400-600
 
A better PSU would be required. 14 GB of RAM is enough, but it most likely is mixed and matched RAM and as such can give complications in the future.
