Im currently looking to be able to run higher demanding games much smoother (not looking to turn my computer into a beast) but if these are not compatible with my PC can anyone reccomend affordable(under 250$ for both power supply and Graphics card) upgrades to help run games smoother.
-Looking to run games like Black Desert Online, Elder Scrolls, Dauntless
Let me take a moment to thank you for posting on the HP Support Forums.
I understand that you have an HP Pavilion Desktop - 550-153w ad would like to know if the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked P/N: 02G-P4-3753-KR would work on your PC. Also, if the EVGA 500 W1, 80+ WHITE 500W Power Supply( 100-W1-0500-KR - Power supply would work with the PC. I'll surely assist you with this.
I did check the product specs for the video card and the video card looks good fro your PC. However, the minimum power supply for the video card is 300 Watt power supply. Presently, your PC has an 180 W uATX aPFC internal power supply. The power supply mentioned by you does not indicate if it is a uATX aPFC power supply. This is the form factor and this will determine if the new power supply will be compatible with your PC or not.
I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if you have any questions. Cheers! 🙂
