Dell® Alienware® Area-51 ALX Upgrading the Video Card
A video card is a necessary part of today’s gaming world. It is always provided with some sorts of improvement in performance. Since lots of video cards are available today, choosing the best one for your Dell Alienware Area-51 ALX system is a difficult task. The quality of graphics card depends upon the number of frames per second. More the number, the more will be the quality. A video card can be divided in to three slots; PCI, AGP and PCI express. A PCI slot is the basic slot which will be equipped in all systems. PCI express and AGI slots will be equipped in the new-age systems. These slots can be differentiated by their colors. Before starting the up-gradation of graphics card, turn off the computer and remove the case of the computer. Then disconnect the cable connected to the old video card. After this, place the new card in to the slot and press it to fit in the slot correctly. Then screw the computer case and reconnect the cables. After completing the internal settings, you need to install the drivers for this card for proper working.
Following are some important points to be kept in mind while doing the video card up-gradation in Dell Alienware Area-51 ALX systems:
- Memory capacity
- Motherboard requirements
- Power rating
You need to identify the available memory in your system. Only if enough memory is available in Dell Alienware Area-51 ALX system, you can install the corresponding high capacity drivers. Because of this you should be aware about the memory capacity of your system before doing the up-gradation.
Video card requirements keep changing. If your system is old, then that can not satisfy the necessary requirements. Before upgrading the graphics card, take a look at the motherboard requirements to identify the type of slot. If the slot is PCI express, then you could install more powerful features. Otherwise you are limited to some less advanced features only.
After determining the type of slot and memory, you will need to find the power supply requirements of your system. The powerful video card requires lots of power since only maximum power supply could support the extra powerful drivers.
