Is it possible to install a GTX1060

HP Recommended
Prodesk 490 g3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

Before I buy this workstation, I am curious of the power supply of this PC has a 6-pin connector for a graphics card (as example the GTX1060), and is there an amount of space for a graphics card?

 

Best regards,

 

Anne

That is a microtower PC.

 

A GTX1060 won't fit in the case. The card is way too large.   I am not certain the card will fit.

 

If you are looking to upgrade to a gaming card, I suggest that you look art the full sized Pavilion PCs with UEFI BIOS.

Hello and thank you for the reply.

That's strange because the Pavilion 560-P043ND has a GTX1060 but the case of the Pavilion is even big as the Prodesk.

I stand corrected. I have corrected my previous post.

 

HP published a document that stated it was a micro desktop PC. See the title of the document in the link below.

http://www8.hp.com/emea_middle_east/en/products/desktops/product-detail.html?oid=9260537#!tab=specs

 

It does have a PCIe - x16 v3.0 expansion slot.  

 

The dimensions of the PC case are quite small, however, at 6.49" X 14" X 13.9".  

 

The dimensions of a GTX1060 card are 9.92" x 4.4" x 1.52"  and It is a double-slot card.  It might fit. 

 

The chipset passive cooler might be in the way of the installation of the card in the second slot.

The original PSU is 300W. That is not enough current supplying capacity for the GTX1060 card. It requires a 500W PSU.

 

There is no six-pin PCIe power connector on the original  PSU.
