I am still using an HP p6310y desktop I bought several years ago, and it is almost perfect for what I need to do on it. However, I have started doing a little gaming with World of Warcraft being the choice right now. I want upgrade the onboard graphics. Was thinking of a EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470, or something like that. I will have to change the power supply, but will it fit and work on my system.
Thanks for becoming a member of the HP Support Forums. I understand you have questions about video card upgrade. I will be glad to help you.
The Motherboard M2N78-la only support PCI Express 1. The EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 is PCI Express 2.0. It will fit in the computer but will still only have PCIe 1 speeds.
For under $550.00us you can get an Envy 750 with a much better video card, more memory, and much faster processor.
Please keep me informed of how things went.
If you require further assistance, let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help you.
