Re: Can i upgrade gpu ?

Hi @Alberto98,

 

Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community! I came across your post and wanted to assist you. I understand you are looking to upgrade the graphics card on your PC and you would need assistance. Don't worry as I have a few suggestions which should help you resolve this issue.

 

After reading your post, I did go through the Product Specifications and found that you have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 graphics card installed on the PC and this is on PCI Express x16 slot.

 

Please find the specifications of both the cards listed below:

 

GTX 460 - Click here

 

GTX 1060 - Click here

 

After going through the specs, I see that GTX 460 Bus support is 2.0 where as the Bus support for GTX 1060 is 3.0. You can go ahead and upgrade it may work but at reduced speed.

HP Does not recommend any upgrade or downgrade of any parts, however, you can go ahead and do it at your own discretion. 

 

I hope I have answered your question, let me know if you need any further assistance. I'll be more than happy to help.

 

Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again.

 

Feel free to post your query for any other assistance as well,

It's been a pleasure interacting with you and I hope you have a good day ahead.
