Help replacing a graphics card.

I have an older graphics card with no HDMI connection - ATI Radeon HD 4890 - which I want to update at reasonable cost with an HDMI. My computer is a Mesh and has an Asus P6T SE motherboard. My problem is I do not know what graphics card to buy which will fit my current motherboard.

All advice welcomed.

Thanks Patrick

Hi I am not up to speed with current models of graphics cards but you do need to think about how much space you have in your computer as some modern cards are long and also whether your power supply has separate PCI-express cables and how many does your new card need.

It's not only the connection on your PSU but whether it has sufficient wattage.
