Hi, I am looking to upgrade the graphics on my hp slimline 410-009. From what I read online, this computer requires specific graphics cards since it has low power? I'm not sure what to look for, could someone help me out by either telling me what I need to worry about or giving me some suggestions? Thanks.
What is your goal? The CPU chip is an I3, and that is a bottleneck with modern gaming. It's PCIE x 16 is gen2, so you would not have the advantage of gen3 cards. A 300W-500W PSU is viable to support a card, but which? The heat-up will cause you issues.
