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!
they both have 470 and 480 streaming cells respectively where as a5770 would have 900 twice as many but all of
these cards are on the old and slow side.the newest barely meeting the lowest tier for win 10
so the question becomes what do you need them to do? the answer will depend on what you need to do at what price
pci? power card slot size and so on, so what do you need it to do in detail?
