Solved!

upgrading video card

HP Recommended
HP TouchSmart 300-1120
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I came into possession of a HP Touchsmart 300-1120. I am not using it for games just browsing and using for watching movies when traveling via Plex home theater. 

 

I have upgraded the CPU to a Athlon X4 605e & maxed out the RAM to 8 GB. I noticed I can upgrade the video card by using the Mobile PCI Express Module slot.  While I know that the onboard Radeon HD 3200 GPU can handle HD video, it does lag considerably. even if I have the movie on the hard drive.

 

So the question is, where can I find one of these cards. And is there a way of upgrading the PSU?

 

Thank you

Your AIO PC has an MXM graphics socket.  The following video card will work. It was included in select models of your PC.

  HP  594505-001 nVidia GeForce G210 512MB MXM DDR3 Video Card

You will have to search online to find a vendor or private individual who has one for sale. I see them on eBay for @$35-50.00

 

Upgrading the PSU is not a viable option.

I have a HP Touchsmart 300-1125, motherboard DAONZ2MB6F0. Upgrades going well, thanks forum members.

Bought a HP 594505-001 video card for the MXM slot. Where is the slot?

Thanks in advance.
