Hi,

 

Read this posted document for background information. Do some measuring inside so that you know that the card will fit.  I don't know the dimensions of the ASUS card that you are considering but the EVGA GTX 460 should fit as it is 8.25" in length.

 

Additionally, you will need a bigger power supply.  This Corsair CX500 is an excellent power supply.

 

These HP 'how-to" articles should be helpful.

 

 

BTW, you have bios 5.07?  5.05 is the latest bios posted under VISTA for your PC.

Tanks Big_Dave, your advice was very helpful & will help me determine & configure a compatible Graphics Card Upgrade for my HP p6109uk Desktop PC. As to the Bios setting (5.07) this was set 2 years ago by a HP technician, should i revert to the 5.05 Bios setting? Liverpool 8

Hi,

 

HP might have pulled that bios version or it was never posted. Maybe it only addresses a particular issue and it was a limited release.
