I have a few questions that still have not been answered for a long time. This is regarding adding a GTX 1050ti low profile to my pavilion 510-p010
1. Will the GTX 1050ti low profile by gigabyte fit in my PC? I ordered an Asus one but that didn't fit so I had to return it. (It was the one fanned Pheonix)
2. Will any normal PSU work in this pc? The one I am thinking about buying is the Thermaltake 430W.
3. Will I have software issues? I have asked this question before but I get mixed responses.
Other Info To Know
CPU: i3 6100T
Current PSU: 180W by HP
Ram: 8gb ddr4(I believe)
SYSTEM BOARD: 81B4 00

Welcome to the HP Support Community!
I checked the specifications of your computer and below are the expansion slots available on your computer.
- One PCI-E (GEN 3) x16 socket
- One M.2 socket 1, key A
You can go ahead and install any graphics card which supports the above slot (Considering the form factory).
The power supply on your computer is 180 W uATX aPFC internal power supply. You can install any uATX aPFC internal power supply.
Refer to the below link for the product specifications.
Hope that answers your question and you have a great day!

Hi, I tried to put in a 1050ti and it did not fit. Even the low profile cards will not fit because of the PSU cable to motherboard blocks the way for a card to go in. There is only 30cm of clearance and low profile cards are 35-40. Is there any way to avoid this bad engineering idea?
The PSU is right above the GPU slot and the 24pin connector is right below the PSU. Thanks.

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

A motherboard layout, such as yours, where the 24 pin PSU connection is directly beneath the PCIe x16 slot usually limits graphics card upgrades to a single slot graphics card.
Dual slot graphics cards don't fit.
