Video Card Upgrade

Pavilion Elite HPE-380t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a HP Pavilion Elite HPE-380t  and am looking to buy the 'EVGA GeForce GTX 950 2GB GAMING (DP, HDMI, DVI-I), Silent Cooling Graphics Cards 02G-P4-1952-KR'. Do you see any compatibility issues with this? If so, what would be the best gaming video card I could add to this system?

Video Card Upgrade

@cdshotz, welcome to the forum.

 

The GTX 950 requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS.  Your motherboard does't have UEFI and it can't be updated.  The last video cards not to require UEFI were the GTX 660/670's.  The power supply unit (PSU) will be slightly under powered, also.  Most newer cards require at least 400W to operate properly.  The 460W PSU in the computer is close.
