Hello, Your computer/motherboard does have:
- 1 PCI Express x16 2.0 slot for graphics card, support video card (1.0, 2.0, 2.1)
- 3 PCI Express x1 slots
- 1 PCI Express x1 minicard slot
You can use any kind nVidia or ATI video card you want, you have to upgrade you power supply, only if going to install high-end graphics card.
Hope this helps?

The specifications for your PC indicate a 250 watt power supply. Open up your PC and read the lablel on the power supply to to make sure that is the correct size.
A decent gaming video card will need a 500+ watt power supply. As for a video card, I would suggest the ATI 6850. This particular card does not support a VGA connection. As a precaution, you will need to do some measuring inside you PC to make sure that the card will fit.
Thes HP "how-to" articles should be helpful.

So I was wondering how high of an upgrade the N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX (Alvorix) motherboard would allow?
GTX -590 dual slot gpu
Six Core Chipset
1000 watt power supply
I don't know if things like the bus is large enough on this motherboard I have and stuff like that. The http://www.foxconnsupport.com/ website didn't even list this model number.

Sorry I am fairly certain that selections that you made will not work in your PC.
Some posters had issues (PC will not power up) with large power supplies. A 650 watt PSU will probably work.
The GTX 590 is a 11" card in length. Open up your PC and tell us how much room you have inside length wise with the PCI-E x16 slot. The slot adjacent to the PCI-E x16 needs to be vacant.
BTW, you do mean dual GPU and not dual slot, right?
The motherboard is a special OEM model made for HP.

Can you clarify what you mean by your statement about the 1100T for my HP Pavilion p7-1010 in regards to upgrading to a six core? I'm not sure what you mean. I'm a little confused - here are the specs for the computer.
I measured my PCI Express x16 and I can go about 12 inches all the way to the case, there may be some wires that need to go under it, and the slot next to it is empty. Yes, I meant dual GPU. Would the following work:
This power supply is the only one I see at 500 watts with a 4-pin, I don't think I can use a 650 watt, 6-pin wire on my 4-pin hard drive. Is this correct?
BTW, thanks for all the help, this has been very useful information.

Look under the specs for the link that I posted for you. You will see the AMD 1100T. It's proabably an error by HP.
The link that your posted (NVIDIA 560TI) times out. The 560 TI is a 9" card and should fit.
You can get an adapter for 6 pin to 4 pin if needed on the power supply. The CX500 is a very good PSU but you will not have much expansion room after the 560 TI.

Ok I still confused. :-( Are you saying my HP Pavilion p7-1010 is not able to be upgraded to a six core becasuse of the specs you link to me on a HP Pavilion HPE h8z series that has a AMD 1100T on it by mistake? The link I send says:
