Hello everyone. Please be gentle as I'm new here...
I have a rather nice computer that came with a AMD Radeon R9 380 Series card, which, for the most part, works fine. However, some newer games cause it to splutter and stall. I want to invest in a new card, but my question is this: How do I know that my computer can run a new card? I don't want to spend money, only to discover that my PC isn't up to running a better, higher quality card.

What else would I have to look for?
Any help would be great.
Depends on the PSU and its wattage rating that you have installed.
IF you have a PSU with 550 or more watts, you can purchase any RX 4xx or Rx 5xx series GPU Cards for your computer as long as you have a PCIe x16 slot (Should be the same slot as the R9 380 gpu card is installed in).
This website gives you a general view of the PSU for whole System wattage needed for both AMD & NVIDIA GPU Cards. PSU REQUIREMENTS - RealHardTechX
