Video Card for HP Inspiron 3847

HP Recommended
Inspiron 3847
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to add a video card to my Inspiron 3847, purchased some years ago.  Want to have a dual HDMI display.  Any recommendations?  thank-you!

@sue_deering52 , welcome to the Community.

 

Your computer is actually made by Dell.  Here is the Owner's Manual: https://downloads.dell.com/manuals/all-products/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_inspiron_desktop/inspiron-3847...

 

Also, here are the Specifications: https://downloads.dell.com/manuals/all-products/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_inspiron_desktop/inspiron-3847...

 

I can't find the wattage of the power supply unit and if it has any PCIe power connectors for a video card, anywhere in the documentation.  Therefore, I can't recommend a video card.

Just recently bought an HP laptop, and helped my partner order one as well.  Used to be an HP employee, so I always look there first.  🙂
