I thought my HP was like that, but it takes time. Be patient, you'll get it apart.

The NVidia upgrade to the one I had. This one has a built in fan though instead of a heat sink and some better graphics, so im happy. Not really into gaming so I didnt buy some 300 dollar one.

No, thats not it. I could buy whichever one I wanted to, however I dont play video games and could care less. A video card is a video card to me.
