Has anyone upgraded a Pavilion desktop TG01-2040 (Product number: 328K8AA) with a GTX 1650 graphics card to an RTX 3050 or 3060 card? It looks like there's room for a longer card. There might be one connector on the MB that might interfere with a longer graphics card. The PC has a 500W power supply (75W GTX 1650 vs 130W RTX 3050 or 170W RTX 3060). Just wondering if anyone has done this kind of upgrade.

@tim277,

 

Welcome to our HP User Forum!

 

Your HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop TG01-2040 (328K8AA) is fitted with the HP Stark motherboard with SSID: 8860 -please confirm.

 

Good to hear you got an HP 500-watt power supply (probably the L05757-800), as this will increase your graphics card options!

 

To answer your question: yes, you can.

 

Take a look at these HP Pavilion TG01-2xxx User benchmarks, and what GPUs these gaming rigs are fitted with: UserBenchmark: HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop TG01-2xxx Compatible Components.  Mind you, some of these TG01-2xxx Users likely upgraded their power supplies beyond 500 watt.

 

Summarizing, with an HP 500-watt power supply, you should be OK up to an RTX 3060, especially if you buy the HP-branded version (HP Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 12GB GDDR6 LHR Graphics Card with HP p/n: M41998-001), say on eBay -such as this example: HP NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 12GB GDDR6 LHR Graphics Card M41998-001 | eBay.

 

Hope this was helpful.

 

Kind Regards,
