I want to upgrade my video card in my HPE H8-1020 - It is a Eyefinity Radeon HD6570. I want to upgrade to a professional monitor for photo editing and would like to know what is available?

Jimg-evv, welcome to the forum.
What is the make/model of the monitor that you want to buy. I will provide the information for you, but it would help me to know more about the monitor.
You can upgrade the video card. However, most mid-level cards require at least 400W to operate properly. The power supply unit (PSU) in the computer is 300W. A card that would work for your needs would require a PSU upgrade, as well.
I recommend at least 500W; 600W would be even better because it would allow for future upgrades. I like OCZ and Corsair PSU's.
You would need a PCI Express x16 video card. I like XFX, EVGA, Sapphire and PNY in that order. If you upgrade the PSU, this card should work for you.
