That Is a doable upgrade.

I really can't say that I would believe what the guy in the video said.   He didn't even show the PC booted into a game and didn't show the installation of the card.  I like proof or at least a video. :smileywink:

 

Most people also upgrade their PSU to a 270 Watt unit. ( Sparkle) is about the max I have seen on a PSU upgrade for an HP slimline PC .
