Can I run this

Example: Pavilion Gtx 750Ti
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a HP Compaq 6200 pro sff with an i3 2100 and 6 GB RAM.  I’m wondering if the motherboard will provide enough power for a GTX 750 ti (it needs 60W)

 

So, will the GTX 750 ti work on the 6200 pro sff?

My main concern would be that your video card would need to be low profile to fit. To answer your power question, yes, the motherboard can supply enough power for that video card through the PCIe slot.

@MD4212 , welcome to the forum.

 

I don't believe that the 750 Ti (Low-profile) will be compatible with your motherboard.  There are two main reasons:

 

1) The 750 Ti requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard/Legacy BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  According to the Maintenance and Service Guide your computer was released in 2011.

2) The power supply unit (PSU) in your computer is only 240W.  The 750 Ti requires a minimum of 300W to operate properly.  The 240W PSU is simply not going to be enough.

Old_geeksteer, good point about the UEFI. There are some 750 Ti video cards that have a hybrid BIOS that allows them to work with both UEFI and Legacy BIOS motherboards. But a high percentage of 750 Ti cards lack that feature.

 

In regards to the power requirements Nvidia states, I have a feeling that is a CYA figure. HP sometimes totally disregards Nvidia. See HP 580-023w which pairs a GTX 1060 3GB (400w minimum according to Nvidia) with a 300w power supply. Nvidia has no way of knowing the quality of a power supply someone will be using.

 

OP, what is your goal of upgrading a 9-year old computer?

@randomname1, you are spot on, also.  I have seen instances where the manufacturer told an OP to buy the 750 with the switch and it still didn't work.  I know the CYA aspect by the manufacturers when it comes to power requirements.  However, since I don't want to give the OP's incorrect information, I always provide the information provided by the manufacturer.  I learned the hard way when I first started helping back in 2002.  Upgrading PC's is not one of HP's primary businesses, so the answers I give reflect on my credibility.
