Graphic Card Update

HP Pavillion 595 p0074
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Product Number : 3LA57AA#ABA

Model Number : 595 p0074

I was wondering add a graphics card to my PC. I checked inside my PC, it seems the slot where a graphics card would be, does not have a graphic card in it.

I was wondering what kind of graphics card that I can put into this slot. Also, I was wondering if I need to upgrade my power supply because I read in this webpage that the max power supply in my PC is 180W. And I need at least 300W to support the new graphics card.

If this procedure, of adding a graphics card and upgrading the power supply, is doable, I will consider doing it. If not, I'm okay with that because I do not want to risk breaking my PC.

Graphic Card Update

@johnj722 , welcome to the forum.


Basically, what @wb2001 was saying is, the motherboard doesn't have a standard 24 pin ATX power connector.  It has a proprietary 4 pin power connector.  The only way to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU) would be with an adapter from 24 pins to 4 pins.  I simply have not been able to find one on the Internet.


Note:  Wb2001, have you found such an adapter?  If so, I would appreciate having this information.
