upgrade video card

Elite 8300
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to add an nvidia quadro card to the system, but there are no available power plug-ins available from the power supply.  What are my options?

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

The answer depends entirely on what kind of power connector the video card requires -- and what kind of connectors your power supply has.

 

The older cards often used a 4-pin connector known as a Molex and the solution there would have been to get power Y-cable that splits the 4-wire power lead into two, so you can have a second power connector.

 

But the newer cards tend to use 6-pin, or even 8-pin, connectors and if your power supply does not have a lead with that connector, you are out of luck.

it's a 6-pin and I was pretty sure that would be the answer, but thanks for the reply so promptly.  I'll just have to find a different video card that's not so demanding.

HI.

 

If this is your CPU format, which gives you very limited, compatible graphics would be low profile or half height, it is recommended to change power supply:

 

-MSI GeForce GT 720 12 API
-MSI GeForce GT 730

You should always know that HP / BIOS motherboards are known to have problems with cards that are not in their vendor list. Many of the graphics are not recognized by UEFI BIOS and must be changed UEFI BIOS inherited to be recognized, some graphics count With button to be changed manually.

It is always good to know where to buy, in case you have problems at the time of being recognized and thus able to return it without problems.

 

Regards.
