Some questions about a xw6400 workstation

HP Recommended

I've just tried to put an nvidea k1200 into a xw6400 and it's not working, is it too much for the board ?
or is there something I can do to get it to work?
Currently it just flashes the red light on the front of the case when I try to turn it on.

Chances are is that it's a UEFI thing with the graphics card and the old BIOS on the xw6400 doesn't know how to see it so it thinks there is no video card.

If the LEDs are flashing 6 times and then pausing, then that is the problem.

Newer BIOS can be told to see Legacy (pre-uefi) hardware, but old units cannot be made to see newer hardware.
