    Hi, I bought a video card for my desktop a few months ago, and it works great, but I would like to buy a new desktop and was wondering if the video card I purchased is compatible with the new desktop. I would also like to know if the pre-installed video card is better than the one I would like to install.

    The one I bought a few months ago: Sapphire 100322L Radeon HD 6450 Video Card
    The one that comes pre-installed with new desktop: Integrated AMD HD6530D

    Here's a link to the desktop I plan on purchasing: Click Here

    A dedicated graphics card is always better.

    Just so you know, with that small of a system, it may not support a dedicated graphics card. Because it's a small form factor PC you need to see if it has a PCI express x16 slot, either 2.0 or 3.0 x16.

    The power supply is 220 Watts. The case looks like mAtx or proprietary size in a narrow, small case. Unless you get a very low powered, low-profile card I don't think you will have much luck with dedicated grafx. Stick with onboard, I say.
