@dado010 , welcome to the forum.

 

I have been doing some research of video cards in your price range.  You will be limited to 4 GB of video memory on the card.  Also, you will have to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU).  The current PSU is only 180W.  I highly recommend a PSU with at least 500W.  This will allow for extra power for peak needs.  A fully modular PSU is good in small mid-size cases.  They allow you to use only the cables that are absolutely necessary.  This leaves space for better airflow.  Good airflow is very important with newer video cards.  They develop a lot of HEAT.  Since the PSU is the backbone of the computer I don't like to use it as a place to save money.  Here is a PSU that should work for you: https://www.newegg.com/corsair-rmx-series-rm550x-cp-9020177-na-550w/p/N82E16817139231?Item=N82E16817...

 

You should measure the space where the PSU will be installed and compare those measurements to the ones for the PSU in my link.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article to help you understand what to consider when upgrading the video card: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7481981

 

Your motherboard has UEFI: https://www.howtogeek.com/56958/HTG-EXPLAINS-HOW-UEFI-WILL-REPLACE-THE-BIOS/

 

So, this is not a concern for you.  The two major considerations are: 1) the length of the card and 2) the wattage to operate it properly.

 

The specifications for the motherboard don't give the version of the PCIe slot.  This means that you may not get the full benefit of a video card that requires 2.0 or 3.0.  They are backward compatible, however.  Here is a video card that should be good for GTA 5 and other games like it: https://www.newegg.com/msi-geforce-gtx-1050-ti-gtx-1050-ti-gaming-x-4g/p/N82E16814137054

 

There are other cards on the page that look good, also.

 

This is as close as I can come to your $300 budget.  If you don't want either of these items they are good examples of what you need.  If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.  I am here every day at some point.

You are very welcome, @dado010!

 

I would like the PSU better if it was fully modular, but Thermaltake is a good manufacturer.  Also, I looked that the specifications for the video card and they look very good: https://www.msi.com/Graphics-Card/GeForce-GTX-1050-Ti-GAMING-X-4G/Specification

 

As you can tell by my Custom Build in my Signature at the bottom of the page, I like MSI products.

 

In both instances, I suggest that you measure the component and check the space carefully to assure they will fit.

 

Here is a good website to check to see what the System Requirements are for a game: https://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/

 

I suggest always going with the Recommended Requirements if you can afford it.  You can enter any game to get the information.

 

Good luck!

You are welcome, @dado010!

 

Here is a semi-modular PSU that is a bit more money, but has a 5 year warranty: https://www.cyberport.at/pc-und-zubehoer/komponenten/netzteile/be-quiet-/pdp/2b05-09w/be-quiet-pure-...

 

As you can see, on one side of the PSU there are ports where the cables plug-in.  Make certain that it has all of the cables that you need for your graphics card.

 

The Integrated Graphics is in the motherboard.  When the new graphics card is installed the integrated graphics will be automatically disabled.  There are numerous videos online to help you with installing the card.
