Can I upgrade to this card Galaxy NVIDIA Geforce GT 740 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

HP Pavilion p7-1436s Desktop P
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My computer has an AMD Radeon HD 7540D which gives me a lot of trouble when editing in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.  I have 32GB of memory installed on this computer.  Can I upgrade to a graphics card that utilizes Open GL or Cuda?  Like this one: 

Galaxy NVIDIA Geforce GT 740 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

or a better one.  I know there are a few folks on Youtube who suggest a $300 plus card for editing. I plan on downconverting 4k footage on my PC to edit.

I just need to know if I can upgrade to a card that allows me to use the Mercury Playback hardward not software.

Momthetechie, welcome to the forum.

 

If your motherboard has UEFI you should be able to use the video card.  However, you will most likely have to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU), also.  The current PSU is only 300W.  Most newer video cards require at least 400W to operate properly.
