Pavillion P6000


I am planning to upgrade/add GPU to my HP Pavillion P6000 series Desktop but I am not sure what GPU would be compatible with it.

Here are some details of my desktop

HP Pavillion P6000 Series

Product Number: BU039AA#A2k

Model Number: p6655d

These questions rise when re-sellers and re-manufactured products are sold.   Here are the specifications, as advertised, in your country.  The HP p6655d is circa 2009-2010 according to HP documents. That does indicate that the BIOS is "Legacy".  It is not capable of modern GPU cards. Here are the motherboard specifications.    The Intel H57 chipset supports PCIe revision 2.

About any GPU: the last known NVidia card would be the GTX 660.  That would require:

1) new ATX PSU . Suggest 550W.

2) RAM.  The installed 2GB is not adequate.   4x4GB is the max. 

    Memory (RAM) is specific to computers. It is not an off-the -shelf item.

3) CPU chip.  The i3 is quite old.  An Intel Core i7-8xx (Lynnfield core)


Not sure what your planning for this 10 year old unit ?  I am not familiar with Linux.
