upgrade video card

Pavilion P6210t
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I need to add an HDMI output to a Pavilion P6210t so I can connect a 40 in TV for my Monther who has limited vision. I think adding a video card with HDMI is the best option (as opposed to using a VGA to HDMI converter) for best resolution. Graphics performance isn't an issue for her. Is this a good approach and are there any suggestions on a basic video card with HDMI and low power (the PSU is only 250W)? What about driver installation, BIOS setup, etc?

Thanks

upgrade video card

It is going to be a problem finding a video card that will work with the 250W power supply unit (PSU).  Also, newer cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS.  Your best option would be to upgrade the PSU to at least 400W.  I like Corsair products.

 

Here are the video cards that are shown that will work with the computer:

 

Must select one of the following options:
  • GeForce G210
  • Radeon HD4350
  • GeForce GT220
  • Radeon HD4650

Here is a card that has HDMI and should work in your computer.
