Pc upgrade question.

HP Recommended
Hp Pavilion p7-1137c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

These are the Specs of my PC:


I want to put a MSI GeForce GTX 1650 GAMING X 4G Graphics Card, PCI-E x16, No SLI, 4K HDR in it.

I have researched a lot and used bottleneck calculators and each of them gave different bottleneck percentages. Some say 100% bottleneck and others say 50%.


I have $110, what is best to do?

You computer is circa 2011, and has the old BIOS called Legacy. It can not be upgraded to the newer UEFI v BIOS which any card manufactured 09/2012 and later would be UEFI.  So, you can not use it. The last know card to work would be the GTX 660, and that requires a 500W PSU.  These are out of your price range.
