Video card for HP pavilion P6000 series (Model #: p6605f) desktop (W7 64bits)

[ Edited ]

I've read some postings saying thePower supply wattage would limmit or restirct the type/brand/model of video card you can install in your PC?


According to the specifications, the PS included on this PC has a Total wattage of 250W.

The integrated video that comes with the motherboard is: Integrated graphics using Intel GMA x4500

And it also supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards.

Does anybody knows of a recommended "good" video card that would work fine with this motherboard ?


Thanks in advance for your help.

Most desktop video cards require a 300 watt power supply and your PC only has a 250 watt power supply,


HP does supply specially designed video cards for slimline PCs with 220 watt power supplies but unfortunately these card are not the right form factor for your PC.
