Hello
Your computer, does not appear to be UEFI compatible
You will therefore not be able to install a recent graphics card, using this mode

Thx for your answer.

I was told that 1060 6Gb is not compatible with my PC. I took the risk and it works fine!

So now, I have no chance to install 2060, right?

So I have questions, because from the little info, with the product page, it seems to me that this computer is not UEfi
Can you confirm if the model I indicated is the correct one, if your bios is not UEFI?
Unless you have a graphics card that can use both modes, if the bios is not UEFI, this might be possible, if the configuration allows it, (sufficient power supply for example)!
However, maybe there was an error in a previous answer for the 1060!
Because I have found subjects, where it is specified that a 1060 works in legacy mode!

@Xoriano,

There is a simple program that will list your BIOS mode.   It will show you either BIOS (aka Legacy)  or UEFI.
