Hi i have the HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0011na and i am looking at graphics card upgrade options but totaly lost around compatability. I guess it would need to be compact but i am unsure about the power supply and what would work with my motherboard ???
installed at the moment is:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050

Those HP models are not intended to be upgraded. You would need to upgrade the PSU but its not viable. Its a proprietary Small Form Factor (not a standard size) that's wired for the HP specifically and there isnt anything powerful enough available to replace it with. You have a 180 watt PSU and you would need something much more powerful to meet the requirements of a video card upgrade over a 1050.
