My processor is Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600CPU 3.40 GHz

i really want to get rid of intel graphics i heard nvidia is better for your game performance and i get most of the crashes on new games or they are just running like on 15fps or less


Can i change Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600CPU to any nvidia driver/processor/video card?

i want better performance on games i want to change Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600CPU to some higher and better core or else

You don't get rid of the Intel HD video on the CPU, when you plugin a card in to the PCI-E slot, the system automatically switches off the Intel HD video.

What we need to know, is what case you have and what power supply, so we can ensure you have enough power and space to fit a new video card.

Also how much you are wiling to pay for a new video card, and what games you are likely to play.

Your cpu is still relevant today. if you are still using the integrated graphics, i would recommend a graphics card upgrade. But as stated above, we would need your full system specs.

If your motherboard has a PCIe x16 slot (almost all do), you can install pretty much any graphics card you want. You also have to make sure your case is big enough to fit it, and that your PSU is sufficient to power it.
