Graphics Cards Upgrades - Pavilion P6-2016

Pavilion P6-2016
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

What graphics cards will work in my desktop computer, Pavilion P6-2016?  Back in July of this year, I had bought a Radeon R5 220 at our local best Buy, assuming it would  work, because the card was only around $50, but ended up taking it back to the store for a refund, because after installing it I got no signal to the monitor.

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Upgrading GPU on a PC may need a PSU upgrade as well, depending on the GPU of your choice.

You computer has 1 PCI express 16 slot.

 

Do you use GPU for high performance gaming?

 

I hope that helps.

To thank me for my efforts to help you, please mark my post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.

Cheers.

Sorry I'm a littl late in replying, the only gaming I do on my computer are Sims 3 and 4, Star Wars Empire at War, older titles such as those.  The card I had tried was the Radeon R5 220, and according to its manual it needed a 350 or 400 watt PSU.  However a tech from the Toms Hardware website, said that my computer should be able to handle the new card without a new PSU, nothing has been upgraded, everything is still the same as when it left the factory.
