What video cards can i use to replace the gt-530 on an HP h8-1160t?

HP Recommended
HP pavalion HPE h8-1160t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have upgraded many things since this desktop purchase, and the next quest is the video card as the fan is dying.  I already tried to use a gt-710 and gt-1030 with no luck as the bios cannot be updated due to the windows 10 upgrade.  Besides a more expensive card like the gtx1150ti, what other options are there to replace it?

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


The 1160t was released for sale in 2011.


You have a Legacy BIOS. You cannot update to a UEFI BIOS required by Nvidia 700 series or higher graphics cards.


You need a Legacy Nvidia 600 series or lower graphics card.
