Hi,

I'm looking to upgrade my Pavilion TP01-2165z desktop with a new graphics card. Any suggestions  for a card that will run off the OEM 310W power supply and Windows 11?

@RedOwl19600 , welcome to the Community.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will explain what to consider when upgrading your video card.  Once you read the article you will have a much better idea of which cards will work.  Your biggest obstacle is the PSU.  Here is a card that requires a 300W PSU, but it requires a 6-pin PCIe power connector.  I don't believe that your PSU will have this connector.

 

The motherboard in your computer is HP proprietary. It has a 4-pin power connector instead of a standard 24-pin ATX power connector. You will have to buy any PSU upgrade from HP.  You will have to contact HP Customer Support to assure that they have more powerful PSU's that are compatible with your motherboard.
