GPU upgrade for Pavilion 460-p274?

HP Recommended
Pavilion 460-p274
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bought a Pavilion 460-p274 last summer. One of the selling points was the retailer's assurances that I could upgrade to a dedicated graphics card if I found the integrated unit not up to the task. We are now realizing we should have invested in a higher grade GPU, but I am not clear what my upgrade options are. It looks like I would have to upgrade the PSU, but I am also reading that some HPs have proprietary PSUs that require a licenses service technician to replace. Can I upgrade the PSU on this machine to an after-market product? The machine clearly has a slot for a graphics card, but I am at a loss to find a card that can work with a 180W PSU. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and would like to help

 

If you are Technically savvy you can go ahead and put in a new Graphics Card yourself. Adding an extra Graphics card is up to customer's choice depending on the budget and why exactly they want a Graphics card. You have lots of Graphics card available in the market and if you want a real good powerful Graphics card, then you might have to upgrade the PSU since 180 W won't be sufficient enough to handle the latest Graphics cards.

 

Again it all depends on how much you are willing to spend for upgrading the computer
