    Hello, It has been a while since I have been on this site , but I would like some help. I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 3847 running Win 7 pro and has onboard video. I want to upgrade to a card but I'm not sure what will work . I don't do any gaming or video editing etc.. I just want something a bit better that the integrated one on the board. Can you suggest any ? I would like to stay under $100.00 if possible and have ability to connect with DVI and possibly HDMI.

    Thanks in advance, Mike

    For an upgrade that will likely also include a power supply upgrade...your price range is far too low.

    Why do you want something better? Gaming is the main reason to upgrade a graphics card and if that's not an intended use then The graphics in the current 4th generation Core i series processor are more than adequate for video playback and all other common uses.

    From what I can determine, it comes with a generic 300 watt power supply.
