I have a HP Pavilion Media Center TV m8031.sc-a Desktop PC, and i am using it for work, video, sound and so on.
I would like to install a graphic card to it, with a HDMI port. I am searching and searching, but i cant find a graphic card that i can use and fit in my machine. Can anyone help me? A guide to find out wich graphic card that fits would be nice, or even better a link to a direct seller so i can order it right away.

There are lots of video cards with HDMI ports. However, you don't want to buy one that doesn't match up with the power supply in your PC or one that will not work with a 2007 model PC.
Unplug your PC and open it up. Read the label on the power supply (PSU). What is the total wattage and the amperage on the 12+ volt bus? The amount of 12+ volt amperage is important when selecting a video card.
