Hi, I would like to run a GTX 1050ti on my PC. I know it will not be compatible but I am not sure what to do to fix that. Do I need to get a new motherboard?
Intel Core i7 2600s 2.80GHz CPU
Radeon HD 6570 graphics card
8 GB of ram is installed

@Looiex , welcome to the forum.
You are correct that your motherboard will not be compatible with the GTX 1050 Ti. The 1050 requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard/Legacy BIOS. HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012. Your computer was released in May, 2011.
There are a couple of problems with upgrading the motherboard. HP has their motherboards made to their specifications. The main problem is with the holes in the motherboard matching the standl-offs in your case. Also, some members have reported having difficulty with the front connectors in the case not matching those on the motherboard.
If it were me, I would save my money and wait until I could afford a new computer. An 8 year old computer is like a dinosaur.
