Hi:

 

The GT 730 won't work because your PC has a version 7.xx BIOS, with the latest revision being 7.16.

 

In order to run a GT 7xx or newer video card, your PC needs to have a version 8.xx or newer BIOS.

 

That is why I believe the HD 5670 will work.

 

But I think you should go for the GT 630, which would be the newest card you can install that should work with the BIOS version your PC has.

 

Otherwise, go with the GT 530 since it is known to be supported in your PC's motherboard.

Hi:

 

It should work if your PC is the MT version that has the 300W power supply.

The specs for the 5670 indicates it has a max power draw of 64W.

Ok .

But I'm worry about the compatibility of the gpu with that motherboard (hp pro 3400 motherboard)  cause the motherboard it's UEFI and I read the gpu don't support UEFI.

It is still compatible?

Why not buy a compatible card then?

 

No sense in taking a risk it won't work.

 

If you got it for free, try it as I still believe it should work.

 

A supported card that would work would be the NVIDIA GeForce GT 530.

 

You can see that it was offered in this model, which has the same motherboard as the HP 3400 Pro...

Ok, do you know why the gt 730 gddr5 is not compatible with that pc? 

I tried all to do it turn on :

I have the last bios.

I have the last drivers .

I try to install the last drivers compatibles with that gpu .

Note:the bios cannot be configured about that ,I was trying too and I had everything nice 😕

Do you think that's a simple incompatibility with the motherboard and gpu?

It's possible but I can't say for sure.

 

The  Radeon R5 240 graphics card was released in November 2013.

 

The Nvidia GT 630 was released in May of 2013.

 

They are close enough in age where the R5 might work.
