Buying a Graphics Card

HP Pavillion 510-p199na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

(my pc: https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c05282878)

I'm buying a graphics card and I was going to get a GTX 1050Ti, but I'm worried about heat and the size.

What other cards can I get? I mainly play Overwatch. I also do some light video editing.

Thanks!

 

CPU: AMD A10-9700 

RAM: 8Gb, 1 of 2 slots

Motherboard: Willow (HP 822A (P0) Version 00)

Buying a Graphics Card

@myqwerty, welcome to the forum.

 

Here is a video card that will fit nicely into your computer and shouldn't block airflow.  However, it requires a minimum of 300W to run properly.  The power supply unit (PSU) in the computer is only 180W.  This means that it would have to be upgraded, also.  I recommend at least 550W to give you more power for peak needs.  You should measure the existing PSU and compare the measurements to the one that you choose to assure that it will fit into the space provided.  I like Corsair products.

Thanks, but this is the card I was worried about fitting in my case because the PCIe slot is close to the RAM.

I have tried to measure the length and I don't think it fits. Tell me if I'm wrong though!

Plus, if it doesn't fit, I might not be able to return it.

Thank you for the additional information, @myqwerty.

 

The card is only 5.70" in length.  The flat side of the card will be toward the memory slots which should allow it to fit.  You may have to remove the card to remove the memory, however.  I suggest that you contact the manufacturer's Tech Support to see what they have to say.  I don't want you to be stuck with a card that won't work for you.

Thank you, is it bad if the card touches the RAM? And can I move it over to another slot?
I can send a picture of inside the PC if you wish.
Thank you though!

You are welcome, @myqwerty!

 

Ya know, a picture of the area around where the card will be installed would give me a better idea of the situation.  Make it close enough to give me a good view.  Also, give me the measurements from the memory slot to the card and any others that you want to include.

@old_geekster
Ok, I can send a picture in a bit as I don’t have my PC with me at the moment. Thank you for all the help!
If I imagine it, it looks like it will be a very tight fit, but that’s no good imagining it!

@myqwerty, I will be gone for awhile.  So, I will come back later.

 

I have seen some very tight fits which has not caused any problems.  If there is enough space for good airflow it will work.
