Help! I need help with the ION 104

Hi I am looking to buy a budget PC and was looking at the ION 104.

  1. Would I need to get a graphics card to play games smoothly(Im not that bothered about amazing graphics)

  2. Does the computer have enough space for one?

  3. I’m confused about the whole powering of graphics card, do they just lead into the same power socket as the PC?

Sorry If i seem stupid to you

Hello mate,

  1. The on-board intel graphics would be pretty terrible for playing any games

  2. Nope

  3. Less powerful graphics card draw power from the PCI slot on the motherboard they’re slotted in to. More powerful graphics cards have additional power fed to them from the computer’s PSU.

I’d recommend a Life NTI326 with a graphics card added in (You can do this in customisation)

There’s no stupid questions, if you don’t know, then you don’t know!

FYI I’m not Novatech staff.
