HP Touchsmart 610-1201nl - Graphics card upgrade !

HP Recommended
HP Touchsmart 610-1201nl
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

I have a All-in-one HP Touchsmart 610-1201nl with a AMD Radeon HD 6450A Graphics card in it.

The graphics card is almost useless for most games, so i want to upgrade the graphics card to a better one !

For as far i know until now it must be a MXM type 2 (or type B) card with max.35 Watts (PCI Express x16 Module).

The Motherboard is a : Quanta Inglewood WJ12

HP cant give me information becouse the system is to old and they offer no support for this system anymore.

 

I'm thinking to try (but i dont know if they will work on my system) : 

AMD Radeon HD 6770M

AMD Radeon HD 5570 1024MB

AMD Radeon HD 6550A

 

Can someone help me to find out which card will work and can be used to upgrade ?

Thanks !

Hello,

 

Thanks for this information.

I already had seen the information on the dutch HP-website, but on the Dutch site, they dont have the hardware options information in which the upgrade options for the GPU can be found !

So realy thanks for this info....

 

It looks like i can safely buy the "AMD Radeon HD 6550A (2 GB)" for my system.

It is not the best, but it is better than the HD-6450A which i have now.

 

Is there anything more i need to know before i buy this card ?

I don't know what to tell you ...
I am just answering you in relation to my little knowledge and the HP support help, I have no direct experience with this type of card.
I have not seen anything about the power supply, no need for a more powerful I imagine!
look at the price anyway, is it worth it, it might be a little better for some games, but don't expect a big change i guess! ??
If you have a specific question, don't hesitate if I can try to answer ...
Sorry, hp documents are sorely lacking

The powersuply is okay.. The Inglewood motherboard can handle GPU up to 35 Watt, and this one is 35 Watts, so it must be okay.

The price is also not so high, just a few tens of euro's/dollars.

 

The only issue now is that i can not find a "AMD Radeon HD 6550A (2 GB)" ?

Not on Ebay, not on Aliexpress....

 

So... if someone can find or have this card for sale ?
