Graphic Card Upgrade for HP - h8-1360t

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion h8-1360t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Wanting to upgrade existing Graphic card (AMD Radeon HD 7570 w/ 1G memory) to a faster graphic card that is compatible with this system.  I do "Autocad Drawings" and the 3D imaging is very slow - need a graphic card with min 4G memory.

Have looked at Graphic cards online - but, don't know what will work with my system spec's.

Can you enlighten me with your knowledge ?

 

Product #  is B4J27AV#ABA

@Dave6610, welcome back to the forum.

 

The major problem that you face is compatibility with the motherboard.  The newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a Legacy/standard BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  The BIOS can't be upgraded to UEFI.  The last cards not to require UEFI are the GTX 660/670 series.  You may have to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU) depending on the one you chose when you ordered the computer, (300W, 460W or 600W).

 

My suggestion is to choose a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your system.  I like EVGA products.  Their Tech Support has always been very helpful.

 

Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Thank you, for your suggestion (s)

I'll continue checking out my options - Have no Idea of what power supply is - I'll have to try and find my original printout of the system.

 

Or I may just take it to a local computer repair store & have them look at it!

You are welcome, @Dave6610.  Thank you for the additional information.

 

You should be able to find the wattage of the PSU on a label on the side of it.
