Thank you for your response. May I ask you an additional question: The requirement for Radeon HD 6850 graphics card is 500 watt PSU. However, the factory-made desktop comes with a 460 watt PSU. Can I purchase and install a new card with same watt requirement, such as the XFX Radeon RX 580 GTS XXX Edition? Bios Mode Legacy.

NOTE: HP does not recommend upgrading or downgrading hardware parts or software that is bundled with the product as It may affect the manufacturer's warranty and performance, however, you could change the configuration at your own discretion.
