HP pavilion p6257 c-b compatible with GTX 750 ti?

Pavilion p6257c-b
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Is my HP pavilion p6257 c-b compatible with Zotac GTX 750 ti graphics card? If so, what would I need to do in order to install it. I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card fit for gaming, so please recommend me parts for my comp.


Also, should I upgrade it or just build a new one?

LegitGamer1017, welcome to the forum.

 

No, the GTX 750Ti will not be compatible with the motherboard.  The GTX 750Ti requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard/Legacy BIOS.  The last video cards that didn't require UEFI were the GT 640's.

 

I have built gaming computers in the past, but HP has built them for less than I can and they work great.  I have a HP Phoenix 860-170VR and I play all of the latest COD series on the highest settings.  I suggest taking a look at it and others built by HP.

If you were talking about a good HP Gaming desktop, here is one that will be very good:  http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/desktops/hp-envy-phoenix-860st-desktop-n3g98av-aba-1?jumpid=Desktops_F...

 

Here is an EVGA GT 640 that has good reviews.  Read what the customers have to say about it.  Another option is to contact EVGA's Tech Support (1-888-881-3842) to see what they recommend for your system.

If your really set on the GTX750Ti, do not dispair. MSI has you covered offering a dual Legacy and UEFI switchable BIOS.
