    Can I replace a Radeon HD 6670 with a newer Radeon R7 360 graphics card?

      Hi.  I want to replace my AMD Radeon HD 6670 PCI Express 2.0 graphics card with a newer Radeon R7 360 graphics card.  Will it be compatible with my existing system - Dell XPS 8300 running Windows 10 64bit

          Dell lists that model as having a 460w power supply, and the HD 6670 has a similar TDP to the R7 360 (66w vs 100w), so I would say yes it can. Open the case and upload a picture of the sticker on the side of the PSU first though.

              Hi and thanks very much for taking the time to reply. I did not mention before that I installed a new 500w power supply and the system is running Windows 10 64bit.  My current graphics card is a Radeon HD6670, and it is working fine in this system.  But when I install the new R7 360 Graphics Card, the card appears to power up (the fan spins) but there is no output whatsoever.  My monitor says ‘no signal’ from any of the inputs I have used – HDMI and Display port.

              The card seems to be correctly seated, I have the most current drivers installed (15.20.1062.1004-150803a-184226E), and when I put the old graphics card back in connected with a HDMI cable everything works fine.  Any idea if I am doing something wrong?  Is it possible that the card is not compatible with the motherboard? Could my new graphics card be defective out of the box?
