Is it possible to fit a proper graphics card to this system? I suspect the power brick may need to be swapped out if this is possible. Thanks.

The spec page for that model is

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-desktop-pc-590-p0000a/19390500/model/22882703/docum...

It indicates there is no other graphics install but integrated, presently.  The motherboard does have a PCIe16 slot, so a discrete card can be installed.  The power supply is only 180 w, so it might need to be changed out, depending on the new graphics card. 

What are your expectations after the upgrade?  There is a possible upgrade without changing the power supply but not if the expectations are to be able to do gaming.

and some examples here

be careful because the graphics card models here do not necessarily correspond to a manufacturer's graphics card (msi / asus / Sapphire etc), the recommended power supply may be higher

Many thanks for that. I'm OK with switching out power bricks and clipping in graphics cards. As in all things - best to get a second [more expert] opinion. There are games that don't require some of the 'all-singing-all-dancing' graphics processing, and I don't see the need [yet] to mortgage the house for such hardware.

 

All the best
