    Hardware upgrade


    Hi I have a ASUS P8B75-M LX PLUS motherboard and am looking to upgrade the graphics card.


    The graphics card I'm thinking of getting is the HIS Radeon RX590 IceQX2 OC 8Gb DDR5


    Will this be compatible with my board?


    My current specs are:


    Intel Core I7 3770 CPU 3.40Ghz

    NVIDIA GT630

    8192 MB RAM


    I am also upgrading the power supply to a Corsair CX750M Semi Modular as mine is weak by comparison.


    Can provide more info if needed.


    Thanks


    Sean

  2. Standard Hardware Security not supported

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to run hardware troubleshooter and let us know if that helps.

    Type "Troubleshooting" in the
    Windows Search bar and press Enter.

    1. Click on "View All" in the top left corner.
    2. This will display the list of troubleshooters which are built-in in the computer. You can click on Hardware and Devices from the list and you can run the troubleshooter.

    Also I would suggest to check if there are any update pending with regard to drivers and to do so, please follow steps mentioned below.

    1. Search for Device Manager in
      Windows
      search bar.
    2. Click on Device Manager.
    3. Check if there Yellow Exclamation Point in the list of drivers.

    Make sure Windows is up to date.

    Hope it helps.
