Hello, As you may have already seen I'm new here, so firstly I would like to apologize that my first post is one where regrettably I am hopelessly asking for help. A few numbers to start: Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.110408-1631) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: LENOVO System Model: Lenovo H420 BIOS: LENOVO BIOS Rev: 1.0 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2120 CPU @ 3.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.3GHz Memory: 4096MB RAM Available OS Memory: 3944MB RAM Page File: 1637MB used, 6249MB available Windows Dir: C:\windows DirectX Version: DirectX 11 DX Setup Parameters: Not found User DPI Setting: Using System DPI System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent) DWM DPI Scaling: Disabled DxDiag Version: 6.01.7601.17514 32bit Unicode ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Card name: Intel(R) HD Graphics Family Manufacturer: Intel Corporation Chip type: Intel(R) HD Graphics Family DAC type: Internal Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0102&SUBSYS_361617AA&REV_09 Display Memory: 1760 MB Dedicated Memory: 128 MB Shared Memory: 1632 MB Current Mode: 1600 x 900 (32 bit) (60Hz) Monitor Name: AOC 2036 Monitor Model: 2036 Monitor Id: AOC2036 Native Mode: 1600 x 900(p) (60.000Hz) Output Type: HD15 The problem: Today my old Dell desktop's monitor gave in and died, it was very dramatic, colour ran all down the screen as if it were crying, anyway the computer itself was pretty much dead regardless of the monitor dying, therefore I quite hastily went to the shop to buy a new one. I could hardly beleive my luck when I found this nice shiny Lenovo H420, screen/mouse/keyboard included all for an amazing price, so stupidly I purchased it, came home and set it up as one does etc. Once the machine was up and running, I decided to try out a new game, Oblivion: Skyrim, which I had purchased a week back but had not been able to play due to the old Dell being ancient, anyway this was a complete disaster, it was almost like a huge pixelated blur. Up until the point of me realising Skyrim was not going to work at all even on minimum graphics settings I had ASSUMED this new PC would have some form of new, realiable graphics card, after a quick dxdiag I was shocked to see it had the same graphics output as laptops? This is a huge problem for me, so naturally I ran to Ebay, hunting for a nice new graphics card to slot into it, I found what I thought was a suitable card, decided to read all the small print this time "400W minimum power supply required", oh but of course! It was at that point I remembered GPUs require certain amounts of power, so I checked the power output the Lenovo H420 has... 280W :/, what started out as a dream bargain PC, quickly declined into a 'Omg so thats why it was so cheap' scenario... I wish to rectify this machine, in order to do so I beleive I first need to buy a better power supply, followed by a viable graphics card, I'm completely clueless in both of these fields and fear I would blow the machine up if I were to do it unguided, oh, another problem is, my budget is almost completely gone, not looking too great at all... I seek advice concerning... Which PSU to buy, 400? 500?, could anyone suggest a cheap yet 'worthy' graphics card to accompany the suggestion of PSU? Another thing is... The case for this new machine is considerably smaller than the old Dell's, I hope a better PSU would be able to actually fit? Side note: I'm a curious person, I took the old Dell's graphics card out (Radeon 1350/1550) and slotted it into the Lenovo H420, fired it up, started up a game and none of the characters within the game had faces ~sigh~ so I assume the integrated graphics of the Lenovo H420 is more powerful than the old Dell's card. Any advice would be greatly appreciated on this matter, I feel like... Like I've spent £100,000 on an amazingly 'fast' car and its been delivered without an engine?
