Graphics Card Upgrade

HP Recommended
Pavilion 510-p127c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This desktop came with an AMD Radeon R9 M360 GPU installed. I would like to upgrade the GPU to be more gaming friendly. I', aware I mahy need to replace/upgrade the power supply too, but my biggest concern is purchasing a GPU that will actually fit into this computer (I have read stories on line of people buying a new GPU and it not being able to fit into the current configuration). Suggestions?

Hi,

 

You have to measure along the existing PCIe x16 slot to see what will fit in your PC. It looks like you have a single slot graphics card now which is around five plus inches.

 

A longer dual slot card may conflict with the 24 pin power supply connector location on the motherboard.

 

Plus the existing uATX power supply is only 180 watts. uATX may suggest a standard ATX power supply will not fit in the chassis. So you have to measure this power supply and purchase a new power supply that will fit in the chassis.

 

Look, this PC is not upgrade friendly. You have a legacy AMD CPU with no upgrade options and a Legacy 2016 chipset.

 

Limited upgrade options with Legacy architecture suggests using financial resources differently, maybe a new HP PC would be a better fit in your case.

 

Regards

HP does not spec PSU

and not OEM specs that space allowed in the x16 slot, nobody, does.

that means (like you said those guys failed to...) use a ruler and measure the space first.

then all 12 makers of  cards and all 10,000 models of GPU all have a spec sheet clearly stating its size (LxW,H)

this PC used tall card, call full height profile (H) so Length is the sticky wicket dead,  3 fan cares many not fit.

wow your mobo looks ATX power type. 4/24 ,  nice, that.  180watt Day1, for most. and useless for GPU over 75watts.

180 W uATX aPFC internal power supply ,quote.  so may be uATX PSU may fit bigger, (ruler time again)

finding uATX PSU are not easy , more watts. I see none googling, maybe one 300watt but was out of stock.

 

ive posted this here vast times others infinity times.

  •  has to fit and not hit, anything inside, we use a RULER.
  • not overload the PSU, none told yet.
  • if GPU fast over 75watts it needs 1 or 2, GPU to PSU AUX cables or the card fails dead or BSOD's endlessly.
  • and more, if UEFI gets unhappy.

4 PSU HP models show here. brands used by HP , new.

my suggestion

put  GTX1650 (non super) in it, and try that,  the options are huge, go to newegg.com  and see that lift side bar

tell me one thing or complex on a PC,  vast choices even ports. and 4k and well lots, only you can pick

but size matters  and below 75watts is goal , no uATX sold, I can find not even at mighty Newegg.

NO warranty answers by me.
