Hi Frostbite73,


I would suggest that you consider NVIDIA video cards. The NVIDIA video cards seem to have better compatability with older HP PCs. The NVIDIA GT 440, GT 430 or GT 545 should work with the 300 watt power supply that normally comes with the HP p6127. Look over at the mentioned cards at and the type of video output that you require.  This PNY GT 440 is a good price/performance buy for the money.


Review the NVIDIA performance specifications. Look at the memory bandwidth specifications and the DirectX level support.


Go to Crucial or Kingston and use the memory tools for your PC.  Once you have selected what you think are the correct memory dimms then followup with call to sales or technical support to confirm that you indeed have memory dimms that are compatible with your PC.
