Solved!

Graphics card upgrade

HP Recommended
Pavilion 55-268ea
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I am presently taking on a lot more video editing and high end photographic work and I have upped the RAM to 16GB.  Although everything appears to be working OK, I was wondering if an upgrade on the Graphics Card would boost performance further.

If so, what Graphics Card would you recommend?

My current card is the one that came with the PC when new and is:

Name:  AMD Radeon R5 235

Chip Type:  AMD Radeon Graphics Processor (0x6778)

DAC Type:   Internal DAC (400 MHz)

Running Win 8.1 (64bit)

Thank you.

This can have an advantage, but not necessarily, you have to see the recommendations of your software used
Sometimes a good processor can be enough

HP Pavilion 500-268ea Desktop PC Product Specifications

You must check if you change the card, the recommended power supply, and if need for an additional pci connector are they present on the power supply.
Power Supply
Internal 300W (100V-240V)

for this software at least:

Illustrator CS4 system requirements
2 GHz or faster processor
Microsoft® Windows® XP with Service Pack 2 (Service Pack 3 recommended) or Windows Vista® Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise with Service Pack 1 (certified for 32-bit Windows XP and Windows Vista)
512 MB of RAM (1 GB recommended)
1024 x 768 display (1280 x 800 recommended) with 16-bit graphics adapter
DVD-ROM drive
Broadband Internet connection required for online services *
There is nothing in particular, I have not checked if there are examples of recommended graphics cards.
check

Then you have a somewhat old computer
Release date
9-Jan-2014
The most compatible models are no longer too available on the market
with the power supply in place, you have examples here:
https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-500-200-desktop-pc-series/5399647/document/c0396906...

you can look at the long list here (check against motherboard, and power supply)

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-500-200-desktop-pc-series/5399647

 

You could perhaps install a gtx 1050, but provided you find a model that does not need more than 300w
I looked quickly, and we find different answers, not enough time to compare different models, but either 300w is sufficient, or it is a question of at least 350 / 400w
If I have any advice, it is not to waste money, see if possible to buy a good computer a little later.
especially, if you can do what you want without too much problem now

On the other hand, price ratio, and performance gain, you could install a Sata SSD, it can be interesting

Thank you for taking the time to answer this query.

I have recently replaced the PSU with a 550 Watt unit.

I still have the original processor which is : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz with 16Gb of RAM; so no mean machine by any means.

I will check out your recommendations.

Thank again for taking the time.
