Graphics Card that support OpenGL 3.3 for HP Compaq Elite 8000 SFF

HP Recommended
HP Compaq Elite 8000 SFF
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want a graphics card that supports OpenGL 3.3 for my HP Compaq Elite 8000 SFF since the onboard graphics only support up to OpenGL 1.1 with the Microsoft generic driver. If someone can recommend me a graphics card that would fit my needs, that would great.

@DaltonLindemann , welcome to the forum.

 

Here is the Technical Reference Guide for the computer:  http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01960471

 

You will find the information for the graphics card on Pages 2-3 and 2-4.  You have two main problems: 1) the power supply unit (PSU) is only 240W and 2) the computer doesn't have UEFI in the motherboard:  https://www.howtogeek.com/175649/what-you-need-to-know-about-using-uefi-instead-of-the-bios/

 

The PSU is proprietary.  Therefore, it is very difficult to upgrade.  All newer cards require UEFI.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  The last series of cards not to require UEFI were the GTX 660/670's.

 

I suggest that you choose a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support to see if they have a card that will work for you.  They are the experts on their products.

 

Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

@DaltonLindemann 

What are you doing with a circa 2009 computer.  That is WAY off lease in 2020.

According to spec, it has a 240W PSU. Read page 2 of the manual.  Low profile, and the size constraints (length).

 IMHO, the HD 4550 is the best choice.   Open GL 3.3
