Help in finding graphics card

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 590-p0053w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm looking to purchase a dedicated Graphics card for my desktop, something within a $200 price range
is it possible to find something that works with my power supply and space? I'm having trouble with understanding the specs and what might actually deliver a performance increase. Thanks!

@x_conducter , welcome to the Community.

 

The first thing that you will have to do is upgrade the power supply unit (PSU).  It is only 180W.  Any of the newer video cards will require 300W to 400W minimum.

 

The motherboard in your computer is HP proprietary. It has a 4-pin power connector instead of a standard 24-pin ATX power connector. You will have to buy any PSU upgrade from HP.  HP has a PSU upgrade that is 500W (L05757-800).  Here is Chart that will show you where I got this information: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Power-Supply-Cross-Reference-for-specific-model...

 

Your model only shows the 180W PSU, but all of the Lincs motherboards have the same power connector.  You can order the PSU on HP PartSurfer: https://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=L05757-800

 

Select the box next to "Add to Cart".

 

Now, for the video card.  It will not be easy to find a discrete video card for $200.  The prices have gone up tremendously during the virus!  A card that is a year or two old is selling for what it did new or more.  Here is just one example of this situation: https://www.newegg.com/evga-geforce-gtx-960-04g-p4-3962-kr/p/N82E16814487133

 

If you look at the "Specs" section in my link, the card was added to Newegg in January, 2019.  I believe it was less than $599 when it was new.

 

Let me know what you decide to do.  I will be glad to help your further!
