Replacing defective graphics card in my HP Pavilion Elite m9361.uk-a

I have an old HP Pavilion Elite m9361.uk-a desktop pc, which I was planning on giving away to family.  Unfortunately, the graphics card doesn’t work anymore.  I’m looking to replace this with something similar or better if possible and just wondered what my options were.  I just want something I can slot in without having to upgrade other hardware if possible.  It was primarily used as a gaming pc (WOW) and will be in the future.  The link above shows it’s current specifications. 

 

Many thanks in advance,

Hi,

 

Review this posted document.  Do you have room for a double wide graphics card? If there is a PCI-E card installed in the adjacent slot then can you move it over?

 

Someone a while back posted a similar issue and did not want to upgrade the power supply and additionally the graphics card needed to be a single slot card. hmmmm  I did find a solution for that issue but it was a challenge. You might want to search the forum and see if you can find the solution.
