Hi

I had a computer guy look at my system today. He thinks the graphic card is cactus.

When I think about it my problems started the day before last when I installed and tried to run Rise Of The Tomb Raider. I think this game requires a card of greater power than mine (gtx 550TI). Anyway after attempting to run this game the computer wouldn't boot to desktop.

Is it possible that the game fried my graphics card?

Also I'm getting this guy to install a Nvidia Gforce 750TI card and I'm also upping my ram to 12gig.

What do u think.

Hi,
The gtx 750ti shows a 300w or greater power supply is required
You don't show which one you have in your system spec's page.

Hi

I went through the paperwork that I got with the pc and it says I have a Coolmaster case with a 850W PSU. PSU is power supply right? Sounds a bit excessive?

Thanks

Hi,
Yes psu is power supply unit.
Not at all excessive no.

Just means you're shooting low in graphic's cards and have a lot of room to upgrade them in the future
A gtx980 recommended a 600w but you never want to be at that exact wattage.
Radeon R9 cards recommended a 750w

So is it possible that a high resource intensive game wrecked my low level graphics card?

Hi,
It is an old card so time could of just caught up with it they don't last forever
You really haven't said anything about any games you play or how long you've had the card or was it used when you bought it
Has it ever been cleaned of dust build up if it has a back plate/ behind the fan.....

Budget always rules the day but your power supply is a good thing wattage wise you have a lot of upgrade options for gpu's
