Question

Is my 7-year old PC compatible with newer GPUs?

Hi,

I'm a high schooler looking to upgrade my MSI AE2712G All-in-one PC.
Link for specs:

I was wondering if I could swap out my old GT630M GeForce for an RTX 1080 or 2060. What other components should I swap out? I can't change the i5-3470S processor though, it's integrated into the motherboard. (PC runs on win 10).
I am fairly new to this but I would very gladly take your opinions.

Thanks!

Re: upgrade

Usually, all-in-ones are integrated, much like laptops and not as easy to upgrade as a desktop.
Open the case and see if there's space for such a card and if you can change the PSU and the cooling to accomodate it.

Searched around for MSI AE2712 information.

All signs and documents say there is no slot for your new card.

If this is for gaming, your cheap exits are the consoles like XBone and PS4.

For PC gaming, you need to get into gaming laptops or desktops (your choice on that.) If you build your own, read https://www.reddit.com/r/PCMasterRace/wiki/builds
