Hi JaredB97

 

You are good to go.

 

Your PC has a UEFI BIOS, a 460 watt power supply, and a PCIe x16 3.0 slot on the motherboard.

 

Verify the new graphics card will  fit in the chassis (length).

 

Before installing the new card you you need to uninstall current graphics driver. You also need to enter the BIOS, disable Secure Boot then enable Legacy Boot.

 

Exit and save changes. Now enter the four digit on screen code to confirm the change.

 

Grzy
