I have a Dell Desktop XPS 8500 that came with an HD 7500 card with 1 GB memory. Recently I installed Windows 10. Computer RAM is 16 GB.
The computer is mainly used for video editing.
A couple of years ago I bought an HD 6570 with 2 GB of memory but never installed it.
My questions are:
1. Would I gain by switching the cards? Does the 6570 fit exactly into the older 7500 slot mechanically and electrically (cables, etc)?
2. Is the installation of the 6570 easy....like a plug and play? Do I need to go into the BIOS?
Since I don't want any downtime fixing things I want to make sure I'm tackling an easy task before attempting to modify this computer.
Thanks for your help!
