Hi.

I can't find any of those grahics cards that fits to my case (it's a big problem!!) :(

Can I use a better than RX 570 graphics card with my configuration? It being too difficult to find a small-factor (ITX?) card...

A link to Amazon would be appreciated.

Thank you

You can use a RX580 the RX 5000 series cards require Catalina 15.2 or newer. The RX 6000 series cards are not supported in Catalina and if they are ever supported it will be by Big Sur.

In a couple of years, I'll spend more to finally upgrade my computer.
How will you supply the 6 pin power to your new RX 570 card ? It won't run from just the power (75W) from the PCIe x 16 slot it connects to.

You can use one of these cables from Amazon if you haven't already upgraded the PSU.

The power then comes through the motherboard instead of through the PSU directly. It works if you don't plan on stressing the graphics card too much with demanding tasks.
