I had always thought that I'd have to switch my HDMI to my motherboard's HDMI port because the video card isn't running with any drivers and therefore doesn't work. Is this true?
UnderTheKnee (20 hours ago)
+PCGamesN Alright, thanks for the clarification! I'll be adding this video to my Favorite list, might I need it in the distant future. And subbed of course!
PCGamesN (21 hours ago)
No, you'll need to boot with the HDMI in your newly installed graphics card. Windows has basic generic graphics drivers which will deliver an output, then you just need to install the proper drivers.

can you try and tell me how to do it on an all in one pc?
PCGamesN (3 days ago)
Unfortunately most all-in-one PCs use laptop parts, which makes it either very hard, very expensive, or simply impossible to do.
I have a evga GeForce gtx 960. I want to upgrade it to a evga GeForce gtx 1080 8gb. Do i need to change my motherboard? Or something else?
Daniel Gurrick (10 days ago)
Hi I’m installing a EVGA GTX GeForce 1060 into my Cyberpowerpc GUA882 and I am unsure where to put in the power chords (1:39). I have the cables that came with the box and put the cables into the graphics card. If I need adapters, where would I put them? Thank you.
Daniel Gurrick (10 days ago)
PCGamesN The power supply is inside some huge case with “cyberpowerpc” how do I open that? I unscrewed the power supply from the outside but they designed for it to not be removed or something
PCGamesN (10 days ago)
The cables going into your new graphics card should come directly from the PSU. Locating the GPU power cords from the power supply will highlight whether you need adapter to fit them into your graphics card.
AJNugget (10 days ago)
Will a 500w bronze psu be compatible with an evga gtx 1060 6gb sc gpu? Also, if i currently have intel hd graphics 4600, is it necessary to download ddu?
PCGamesN (10 days ago)
In terms of Wattage it will be fine, but to check full compatibility you'll need to see what power cables come out of the PSU and which are needed for the GPU.

I installed the new card booted it up and the fans were spinning, in the beginning atleast and then they stopped, should it do this?
Post Melon (16 days ago)
Okay, thanks for a qucik answer!
PCGamesN (16 days ago)
If it's a modern card then yes. They're designed to only start spinning again once the GPU itself hits a certain temperature. It's to keep noise down when the fans aren't needed.

Sorry i didn't quite get it, do I have to uninstall any drivers if i'm switching from nvidia to nvidia? It seems like you did
PCGamesN (1 month ago)
Matthew Kwan If you're sticking within the same brand of GPU (Nvidia to Nvidia or AMD to AMD) then you should be fine to retain the same drivers. Just make sure they are the latest ones once you're up and running. We'd only recommend using something like DDU to clean out the drivers if you're switching between companies.

Dane (1 day ago)
I have no tech skill when it comes to computers and last year I decided I wanted to build a PC. A bit intimidating and a lot to learn, but just watch a lot of YouTube videos and you'll realize its super easy. Changing a graphics card will take you about 3 minutes.

+Phantom Gamer231 gpus aren't that expensive if you go AMD route, until you can afford Nvidia if that's what you want. I have an AMD Rx 580 I believe and it's a pretty good one
HappyAgony (14 days ago)
Yea its easy just do a little research so you go in confident. Basically you gotta check if your pc can deliver the wattage it needs and also check to see if the card itself will fit in the case. Removing old graphics card can be a little tricky tho they tend to stick in the slot and you gotta gently and slowly wiggle it out for about 20 minutes if its really in there like it happen to me on the first upgrade lol that was fun but man its worth it once you get dat fps boost boiii

Ruben van der Maazen (1 month ago)
I bought a pc with no graphics card but it had one in it before I bought it. It's a ryzen cpu so no integrated graphics. The only way to remove the old drivers is to first install the new one because otherwise I can't see anything on my monitor. Is this okay? If so, do I remove first and then install new drivers or the other way around?

Do you think it is a good idea to put a 1080 ti in with a 600 watt psu
PCGamesN (1 month ago)
TehEpicFace it won't necessarily have your PSU running at peak efficiency, but a 600W unit should be able to run a GTX 1080 Ti so long as it has the power connections. Our ref. 1080 Ti, with a stock i7 8700K, Z370 board, and 16GB RAM tops out at around 400W in terms of peak platform power draw.

Jamppandeerus thanks i now have an asus strix 1060 6gb I didn’t have any 8 pin cables but I used the 6 pin and a 2 pin and it works beautifully only thing I’ve noticed is the fan doesn’t seem to run maybe it’s disabled till under a certain load which I haven’t hit yet or it just be turned on via a program?

500w should be enough for a 1060 6gb

My pc is currently using a powercolor r7 250 and I’m planning on upgrading to a 1050ti. Would it fit my motherboard?
izzelb (1 month ago)
PCGamesN ahh ok, thanks
PCGamesN (1 month ago)
izzelb Yes, the card will most likely fit your motherboard, but you will need to check about your power supply. If the 1050 Ti you're looking at doesn't have a secondary power connector on it then you'll be able to power it from the motherboard alone, but if it does need a 6pin power connector you'll need to make sure your power supply has a spare 6pin plug on it to connect to the GPU.

Jim Gorschboth (2 months ago)
Quick question- since you installed a software that completely removes any GPU drivers, do you have to uninstall that software first before installing the NEW drivers for the upgraded card? And would leaving the "driver uninstall software" conflict if not doing so?

PCGamesN (2 months ago)
Ya ...depends. If you upgrade to a graphics card which needs a lot of power you might need a new PSU. Aside from that you should be okay with any modern motherboard and CPU combination from the last five years or so.

Hey question I installed ddu and I did clean and shut down and I popped in the new gpu I get no signal so I took it out and used on board gpu no singal old gpu no singal can I get some help
gunlap (2 months ago)
DO NOT use display driver uninstaller.. especially if u have Windows 10. It screwed up my HDD and SSD. windows 10 is so sophisticated that it does the work for. its literally as simple as popping in a new graphics card and swapping out the old one. do not fall for these crappy programs
gunlap (2 months ago)
PCGamesN the status of everything was perfectly fine before. right after, nothing. yes i agree going from amd to nvidia and vice versa makes DDU useful.. but nowadays just upgrading from a 1060 to a 1080 is easy as swapping.
PCGamesN (2 months ago)
gunlap That doesn't really sound like it was the software that managed to irrevocably brick your two drives to me, but without knowing the status of your drives, PSU, and system beforehand it's difficult to say what would do that. Unfortunately it's not always as simple as swapping the card out and hey presto, sometimes it is, but sometimes there are driver clashes between AMD and Nvidia drivers that can't be fixed just with Windows 10. And that's where DDU comes in handy.
gunlap (2 months ago)
PCGamesN nvidia drivers, uninstall and shut down. after that, bios couldnt read ssd or hdd. everything was fine prior. bottom line, u dont need these silly programs for a "clean install". swap out, swap in, and be done with it. u never know what uninstallers can do to ur pc. i know for a fact it messed up my drives because i tried using 3 different psu's and still nothing
PCGamesN (2 months ago)
gunlap What did DDU specifically do to mess up your drives? We've been using the program for years with awkward installs without any issue.

Merchaant (3 months ago)
PCGamesN Thanks :D
PCGamesN (3 months ago)
Merchaant depending on the PCIe power connectors from your PSU, and the space inside your case, that shouldn't be a problem. Your CPU might hold back performance a touch, but not a huge amount as it's an i7.

Thank you, was actually having trouble with nothing displaying. Appreciate the reply
PCGamesN (3 months ago)
James Potter sometimes it'll happily run the basic Windows driver until you install the GeForce drivers, and sometimes you won't get any video output at all. To be honest it's just easier clean uninstalling the Radeon drivers first just in case.

Do you think my i5 2500 could run a gtx 1060 graphics card
PCGamesN (4 months ago)
Absolutely, and you'll probably be surprised at just how capable it is! :) We upgraded an old stock-clocked Core i5 2500K rig, which without overclocking is very similar to the straight 2500, and stuck a GTX 1060 inside it, and the results were great. You can check out the video here: https://youtu.be/e0Yu2xKxuEw?t=1m51s We were going from an old 560 Ti, but still the CPU was more than capable of delivering on most of the GTX 1060's promise.

PCGamesN thanks for the info! :)
PCGamesN (4 months ago)
Ben You can buy really small GTX 1060 cards with the same power as the standard versions. They're also possibly the cheapest versions at the moment too and I'm pretty sure they'll fit a chassis which held a 950.
Absolute Kills (4 months ago)
I would like some help, i have a gt 610, i5 3330 and not sure of the power supply but i would like to upgrade to a gtx 1050 ti, would i be able to do that without killing my pc
Absolute Kills (4 months ago)
Yeah im gonna get the ti and i have a power output of 430w
PCGamesN (4 months ago)
Absolute Kills You would need to check the Wattage of your power supply. It should say on the side, so you'll be able to tell by taking the side off your case and looking inside. Anything around 400W will be fine and if you choose a 1050 Ti with no extra power connections it'll just take all its juice from the motherboard without needing cables from your PSU.

I have a: amd athlon x4 860K (3.8GHz) XFX HD 7770 (1GB, 1.1GHz) 8GB RAM Windows 10 pro and get about 20fps in PUBG; due to financial reasons the best graphics card for my budget is the GTX 1050ti, do you think that it would benefit the performance enough for me to spend the money? or is there a better graphics card that would be better if i were to save up longer?
PCGamesN (7 months ago)
Yeah, you'll get a bit of an FPS bump with the GTX 1050 Ti, especially with the 4GB VRAM over the HD 7770's 1GB version.
Thomas Robinson (7 months ago)
PCGamesN ah ok. so just to clarify, do you think with my set up a gtx 1050ti would improve FPS in games like PUBG?
PCGamesN (7 months ago)
Thomas Robinson the tough thing is that graphics card pricing is hugely inflated right now, because of mining demands and manufacturing problems, so it's really difficult recommending cards at the moment. The GTX 1050 Ti is a decent budget 1080p GPU, but only if you can get it for under $150 / £120. But that's a faint hope right now :(

Hatchett (8 months ago)
Hey. Should my GPU be plugged in (from the 6 pin power plug) when using the DDU to uninstall drivers? Is it necessary or will it work without? My problem is that my GPU (R9 270X) wont display to my monitor (I get an 'out of range' error on multiple monitors) and so I am currently using the default basic windows display adapter to use my PC through VGA. I've had my GPU 3 years now. When I plug in the GPU it automatically enables the graphics card and so I receive a blank screen of which I cant operate. I am trying to fresh install the correct drivers and removing the originals first, but with the graphics card powered I cant operate the PC due to 'no signal', hence I'm using windows basis display adapter. Perhaps my HDMI port on my GPU is broke? Does the GPU need to be powered (from the 6 pin power plug) when using DDU to uninstall drivers? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What should be done if the fans do not spin while booting up or doesn't boot up at all?
Scott Taylor (8 months ago)
My old card won't come out
PCGamesN (8 months ago)
Scott Taylor It might be because on the PCIe socket there will be little retaining hooks on the end of the socket furthest away from the back of your PC. If you push your graphics card back down into the slot again, you should be able to push down on the retaining clip with a screwdriver to release it and lift the card out. .

Can you remove the old graphics card without using a ddu or anything of the sort?
PCGamesN (9 months ago)
AssaultMode yes, you can just uninstall the graphics drivers via Windows instead. But, especially if you're switching between Nvidia and AMD, you can eliminate a lot of potential problems by using DDU to clean your OS out first.

So I need to uninstall the old drivers first then install the new graphics card? Linus Tech Tips installed the new graphics card first then uninstalled DDU. Which method is correct?

1Stunna2323 yeah, we'd recommend using DDU to uninstall your old drivers in safe mode first, then shut down your machine and install the new card. Doing it that way round means that you can be sure to have all the residual driver data removed before your new card gets anywhere near your rig. Putting the new card in first means you may have to do some messing around to even get your machine into safe mode, especially if you're switching from AMD to Nvidia, or vice versa and trying to boot with the competition's software installed.

I have an a10 6800k processor. Should I upgrade to an rx 560?
PCGamesN (1 year ago)
AfterEffectsGamer if the A10 is the only graphics your machine is using then you'll get a nice, relatively cheap upgrade with a 560. You should be able to do decent 1080p gaming with that.

I'm still unsure as to what I should do with the current graphic drivers. I currently own a GTX 760 OEM and want to replace it with a 1060. I have thoroughly inspected my system and found out that it is, indeed, possible for an upgrade. So I got the new card now and would it be enough if I just uninstalled the NVIDIA graphic drivers from my computer? Would you recommend using the Display Driver Uninstaller instead?

Yeah, you should be okay to just uninstall Nvidia drivers from Windows if you're going from GeForce to GeForce. You'd actually probably be okay just dropping in your new card and updating the drivers without uninstalling first, but it's good practice to give it a little cleanup. DDU though is super-useful for completely cleaning things when you're switching from AMD to Nvidia, or vice versa. You're going to be in for a world of gorgeous gaming going from a 760 to a 1060 too! Excited for you :)

Is it worth buying MSI Gaming RX 580 Gaming + and change it from Msi gaming R270X 4gb?
PCGamesN (1 year ago)
kondziu124 it really depends how much the card is at your retailer of choice. If you can get a 580 for less than $250 then it's definitely a worthy upgrade. But at the moment Radeon cards are really tough to find at a decent price. At $300 or more they're too expensive compared with a GTX 1060.
