HP compaq
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello! It's been over a month of me thinking about upgrading my GPU on the Hp compaq 6305 Micro tower 

And luckily I have found an RX 550 but I was thinking if my PSU might not be enough for it

 

Specs:

Ram: 4*2Gb Ddr3 

Cpu: A8-5500B Quad 

Gpu: integrated Radeon 7560D (2gbs)

PSU:  320W 90% efficiency 

 

So what do you think? Should I upgrade the PSU as well I don't want to take any chances cuz I barely saved up for that GPU 

Thanks in advance

Hi:

 

The card would work fine with a 320W P/S.

 

It only has a power draw of 50 Watts and the recommended power supply is 250 Watts.

Hey Thanks for the reply But I forgot to put another question 

 

Since I am going to buy that Rx 550 and the Integrated Gpu is gonna be useless when compared in performance (Therefore I might Disable it) 

 

Does it still Draw power while Disabled? 

And is it better to Keep it Enabled to get the benefit of the 2 Gpus 

 

Thanks in advance 👍

You're very welcome.

 

When you install the RX550, the onboard AMD GPU will automatically be disabled.

 

You would have to go into the BIOS and change the setting to allow both GPU's and there would be no reason to do that unless you were going to use more displays than the RX550 could support.

 

The disabled GPU will not draw any power.

 

One important thing to do before you install the new graphics card:

 

Go into the Windows control panel>programs and uninstall any AMD graphics software that may be installed.

 

Then go into the device manager, right click on the AMD GPU, select Uninstall and check the uninstall driver box.

 

It should be listed under the display adapters device manager category.

 

If uninstalling the AMD software also removed the AMD graphics driver, you can skip the step of uninstalling the GPU in the device manager.

 

Then you can shut down, unplug the PC and install the graphics card.
