I currently have: - intel core i7-4770 - GeForece GT640
i bought this computer maybe 5 years ago and i think it was considered a gaming computer (don't use it for gaming) I have considered upgrading the graphics card for a while hoping it would help with the load times for autocad and revit (drafting & modeling).
I do not know how i can figure out what is compatible, but i am assumming knowing the current graphics card it would be easy to determine an apt upgrade? I found this item: GeForce GTX 1050 https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GeForce-GTX-1050-TI/dp/B01MA62JSZ/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=gtx+980&qid=1553212734&s=gateway&sr=8-1
i want to know if this is easily swapped and if this indeed will help with the hang ups on my drafting. Also, wanted to confirm if I need to reinstall programs now that i would be messing with the components.
thank you in advance
