upgrading my hp pavilion p6-2388ea

Hi  i'm thinking of upgrading my computer with another graphics card preferably to nvidia from the radion one thats in it i know i'd have to upgrade power supply as this comp only has a 300w , 

the motherboard is a msi ms-7778 (jasmine) and the graphics card is a radion hd 7570 if i can which nvidia card would be best for it. any help in deciding wether to change or not would be most welcome.

Hi,

 

Your PC has the modern HP version 8 BIOS.  There is a BIOS update available that you should consider installing before doing any upgrades to your PC.

 

A good power supply would be the Corsair CX500 or CX600 depending on the cost at the time of purchase.

 

 

Do you have a specific use for the new video video card such as modern games?

 

Please review this posted article.

Hi,

 

I don't think that your PC hardware is an issue for the game to install.  I suggest that you contact EA and give them the error information related to the game not installing.
