Looking to upgrade graphics

HP Recommended
hp slimline 410-009
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

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.

@watt2,

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.

The issue is that every time I try to play certain simple games like hearthstone I get all kinds of graphical errors.

What I've been told in the support for those games is that my issue is with my graphics driver.

I tried upgrading the driver, but the hp website has the latest driver update for my model being from 2015. Couldn't figure it out. So I just though screw it, might as well just get a new one.
