Hey guys I have this HP desktop tower http://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c03359137 and was looking into upgrading it's graphics card to something like https://www.mwave.com.au/product/msi-geforce-gtx-1060-gaming-x-6gb-video-card-ab84670#detailTabs=tab... i'd probably need to buy a power supply also with it https://www.mwave.com.au/product/thermaltake-tr2-s-trs550ah2nk-550w-80plus-atx-power-supply-ab80326 could you guys advise me if this would work, or what other options would be better in getting a newer graphics card put into my HP desktop and how i would go about upgrading my current desktops graphics card and what is compatible with it in terms of like BIOS or Motherboard, I'm kinda not so tech savvy in this area, thanks for your time.

This board has certain incompatibility with respect to certain graphics, depending on the version of bios you have, it is very likely, that you find problems when it works the graphic that you want to install even lower graphics, if it is true you should not have problems of Compatibility as the motherboard and socket 1150 is having a PCI-E 2.0 compatible slot that should support all PCIE 2.0 / 3.0 compatible cards. Consider compatible graphics such as Nvidia / Asus / Zotac GTX 960 or AMD R9.

As I indicated this type of equipment have certain problems, you should keep in mind that you may have to disable UEFI bios and activate inherited bios, or I have seen a case of having to do a by-pass if this is the case and have the latest version of bios 8XX + power supply.

One thing I always mention is to take into account the CPU and graphics form factor, in case there are problems to make the return in the store without problems.
