GTX 1050 ti graphics card for HP Pavilion 550-153w

HP Recommended
Pavilion 550-153w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm wondering if a GeForce GTX 1050 ti can be installed on an HP Pavilion 550-153w?  Per Nvidia you can but I want to be sure. Per other HP articles, I play to upgrade the PSU.   I'm also wondering where the PSI Express x16 slot is located (looks like the 550 has 4 slots on the back), so I'm not sure.  Lastly, BIOS modification is mention, so I'm wondering how this is done as well.   Thanks for any help.

Here is what I did:

Installed Corsair CX550M (550 watt) power supply unit (PSU).

Installed Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050 Ti.  Downloaded and installed the latest drivers for a the Geforce GTX 1050 Ti from Nvidia.

Installed Slimline Sata Power Adapter Cable from CRJ Electronics.  This was needed for the DVD drive to the PSU.  The Corsair CX550M didn't come with a cable for this (regretfully).

This worked.  Everything is working fine.

Thanks for your help.

The long slot next to the coin sized RTC battery is the PSI Express x16 slot.

 

We do not promote or make any BIOS modification recommendations as a matter of practice. 

There is a huge risk involved  with modified BIOS ROM files so we leave that up to you.

Thanks much.  Do you know if the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 ti can be installed on the HP Pavilion 550-153w?  Meaning, it's compatible.  If it is, then I'm good to go.

It should work, but I will stop short of guaranteeing that the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 ti will be compatible with your Pavilion 550-153w.
