Can i add an RX 470 to an ELITE 7300 MT with i5-2500

HP Recommended
Elite 7300 MT
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
I want to get a graphics card for my Elite 7300 MT, and o've chose the rx 470, however i'm concerned about the comptability with the motherboard since i've seen many people complaining from gpus not working wheb added to the same type of motherboard in this pc.
The bios doesn't have UEFI.
So will upgrading with this card work or will i have comptability issues ?

Hi,

 

The AMD RX 4xx series is not going to work in your PC.

 

Open up your PC and read the lable on the power supply.  What is the total wattage? Once that is known then look for a legacy graphics card that will work with your power supply. While the PC is open, measure inside so that you know what size graphics card will fit.

Yes o know about the power supply and i'm willing to replace it with a 500w one, and the card will fit in the case.
However my concern as i said is comptability with the motherboard, and after extensive research i found that because hp stop offering bios updates after a short while all new gpus won't work.
The sad thing is a lot of other manufacturers prebuilt PCs don't have this problem.
