Will a EVGA GTX 960 4GB GPU fit and work with my

HP Pavilion HPE H9-1187
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Wanted to upgrade my graphics card and wondering if the card would be compatible, no BIOS problems, etc, and if it will fit. Measured inside and it should fit.  Here are the specs for my PC, I upgraded the Power supply to a CX 750M Corsair.

Andrew, welcome to the forum.

 

You should measure the space between the Back I/O plate and the front of the computer.  This will allow you to see how much length the card can have and check to see if any components are in the way.  Also, I suggest that you contact EVGA Tech Support (1-888-881-3842) to assure that the card will work in the computer.  It requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  I don't believe that your motherboard has UEFI.

I measured the length and it looks like i have at least an 1inch extra. I will email EVGA and ask them about the bios, thank you for the reply :)

You are welcome, @Andrewmals

 

Also, you can do some cable management to allow for better airflow.  I have spent as long as 2 hours getting the cables where they don't block airflow.  This is important with a powerful video card.  You should make certain if the card requires extra power connectors.
