    All the reviews said it's a good PC "if you're not a gamer". Why isn't this a good machine for gaming? It has an i7 and an SSD, and 12GB RAM. What it's missing, just the video card?   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      I would have to say VC. This has on board Intel HD graphics. It does have a dedicated slot for a video card, but cannot find out how much wattage the power supply outputs. Heavy gamers and photo/video editors using high end cards require more power to run the processor on the graphics card.

      Will the graphic processor work with a fairly sophisticated flight simulator? Could I put in a dedicated graphic card in this computer down the road if I wanted to? Scott   (1 Answer)

        Yes, you can install a dedicated Video Card, it has one PCI slot available for a video card. I bought a 4GB video card and installed it

        Can this computer support dual monitors? I see it has both an HDMI and VGA, and realize it would definitely work better with an additional graphics card, but am just wondering if it will at least function as is.   (2 Answers)

            My understanding at the store is that it wouldn't work well or not at all with W7. Call/see GEEK SQUAD they are very helpful with this type situation.

            Everything looks great on here, except for the video card. I have never liked intel graphics. Is there a slot for a video card such as the NVIDIA 1060 or maybe even better. If so, would I need to upgrade anything else on here to prevent frying the PC?   (3 Answers)

            What is the power supply rating on this desktop ? I have a NVIDIA 1060 card with me. Would I need to buy a separate power supply to run my graphics card ?   (2 Answers)

              Answer

              You really should upgrade the power supply to a 500W or better to accommodate the power needs of the card. You could possibly get away with not doing it, but operating a computer on barely minimum requirements can cause system instability. I have bought several of this model and have always upgraded the power supply when I have added additional hardware before deployment.

              Doesn't look to hard but voids the warranty if you do. Check the video and compatible graphics cards here. http://www.pcbuildadvisor.com/asus-m32cd-review/
