Graphics card replacement , advice on what to buy

  Helen Gara 19:20 14 Feb 2019

My son has a Lenovo Erazer X310 desktop pc, Intel core i7, 16gb Ram, 1TB + 8GB SSHD. The current graphics card no longer works and needs replacing so would appreciate any advice on a suitable/better replacement for an active gamer. Current card is AMD Radeon R9 255 with 2gb dedicated memory. Thank you.

A Radeon 570 or GeForce 1050Ti are more than adequate replacements for that card.

Your son will see improved performance over the 255.

For gaming I wouldn't recommend going below those cards.
