What’s a good graphics card for this in my Dell Optiplex 980, Windows 7 Pro?
First, you’ll need to confirm that the power supply in your system can handle an updated GPU. I think the standard supply is 300W, which is pretty small.
Then you’ll need to find a card that can support 4K (a card with 2 to 4 Gigs of memory).
Also, your system can only handle lower profile PCI cards, so that will have to be on your specs list.
Have a look at Newegg and see if anything works for you (price and feature wise)
Extending on this …
255w or 305w, depending on the original configuration. Being that the 980 uses first generation core processors and 8 years old now, you may run into other compatibility aspects with modern video cards.
(Remember that Microsoft ends support for Windows 7 in January 2020 too.)
Thanks for the help.
Good info. Thanks.
