Need to upgrade my graphics card

550DT
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Currently have the AMD Radeon R5 330 OEM, need to know what my computer will support so I do not buy an incompatible card.  Looking to get 6gb if possible, but looking at options vs cost.  System number T3Z93AAR.  Using desktop connected to TV through HDMI

@ItIsJustGraig,

Your ystem is the HP 550-227c, as shown here.  Why you did not just state it is my first question.

1) The 300W PSU will support limited cards because the PCIEx16 GPU slot only allows a 75W card MAX.

2) Present AMD r5 330 is a 25W card.

What is your goal?  Serious gamer?   What games (only name the top 2 graphic intense). OK? 🤔

3) A serious GPU card like the RTX 2060 meets your basic inquiry, but needs a new PSU to power it, like the Corsair CX550.  If you want to go modular (less unused cables) Corsair CX550M

I really need you to answer the goal question, because my comment in #3 is based on basic inquiry.  If you push the envelope, then I up the card and PSU.

Sorry I did not include system name, that's just me getting caught up and missing the obvious.  I have the simple desire to get it to play borderlands 3 on steam.  I was hoping for a quick graphics card upgrade to get it to work, if I have to get another power supply as well I am just going to call it quits and upgrade entire system.   If no recommendations for that would you have recommendations for gaming builds or prebuilts for around 1,000?

@ItIsJustGraig,

This site will let you test you machine, and also shows the min / recommended computer specs.

That A10-8850 is way below the minimum CPU.
