@jose28,

You have the HP 570-P033W. 

Why the 1060 ?  You guessing ?  Price ?  Did you research the card performance based on a game requirement ?

The length of the card must not exceed the measurement from the expansion rail (rear of chassis) to the 24 pin main power header.  If the card exceeds the space, it will slam into the wiring, and not seat the card.

The Nvidia site states the card is 9.8" long. That would SLAM your 24 pin main power.  You will need a short 1060. And, if you might a short card, a new PSU for the added 120W.  A Corsair 500CX would be an ideal fit, IF you find the right card.

          Measure this length                                                        (forget the r5 435 reference)

 

I am not an expert on NVE so I will give you 2 references.

Read thru this review of suitable minimum and recommended, then take note that it states " In order to safely max out the graphics, you’ll need to be above the recommended requirements, which are still on the low side compared to most popular games....".

Did you measure the distance from the expansion rail to the main power plug ? Still need that !!!

Measure from the back of the case to the 24 pin socket.  It is marked in RED

I want to change my graphic card to a GTX 1060

I have the MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6GB video card myself, it is an excellent choice. Mine is running with a Core i7-based machine and it runs everything I throw at it without difficulty. The next tier of video cards involves a significant jump in price. Almost any discrerte, add-on video card will be a step up from the onboard graphics.

 

You need to answer the basic questions first:

1) Do you have the physical space required? Do some homework and find out the exact length of the card you want; I use Newegg quite a bit for quick access to that sort of detail. Look up the item and check its 'Specifications' tab. Length will be listed there.

 

1a) If you don't have the length needed for the full sized card you are not out of luck yet. The GTX 1060 is available in a short version. You have to sacrifice one of the twin fans but you are basically getting the same card.

 

3) Do you have an available 8-pin (or 6-pin)  PCIe power connector available? Like most good video cards this one requires its own power cable. Newegg's 'Specifications' for the card will also tell you what it needs for a power cable. It's probably an 8-pin. Probe around inside your case and see if there is a bundle of unused power wires and connectors; they might be tightly bunched up and hiding. One of them may be the needed PCIe power cable.

 

3a) If you have no PCIe power cable you might not be out of luck yet. There may be a different available power cable with the same voltage and ther may be an adapter cable that can turn it into a PCIe power cable. That would take a bit of homework, good luck.

 

4) Does your power supply have the necessary power? At least a 400 Watt power supply is recommended. A little headroom beyond that would be nice. As long as your system isn't drawing a lot of power already 400 Watts should squeak you by all right.

 

Installing the discrete graphics card should automatically bypass your onboard grapics chip though it's possible, but not likely,  you might have to go into BIOS and switch off the onboard graphics.

 

If you get that card and install it successfully you will not be disappointed.

 

I put together my own machines and have always tried to buy a case with enough room for a full sized video card. And I always overspend on power supplies. I want better quality, more power and more power connectors than I need.
