Im trying to see if it's possible to upgrade my current PCS graphics card to an Rtx 3060Ti, or what the best upgrade is available for my PC. Never upgraded a PC before really new to all this thanks for the help.

@Jungnickel , welcome to the Community.

 

Welcome to the world of upgrading computers. 

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will explain what to consider when adding or upgrading a video card.  Once you have read the article you will have a better idea of what can be done.

 

Here are the Product Specifications for the computer.  The motherboard has "Two PCI Express x16 physical slots (Gen 3.0), each slot with x8 bus lanes".  Here are the specifications for the 3060Ti.  You should click on the "Specs" in the upper right corner of the page.  It requires a minimum of 600W and 1x8-pin supplementary power connector (adapter to 1x 12-pin included).  This means that you will have to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU), also.  The current PSU is only 500W.

 

Personally, I would suggest that you look at a RTX 2080.  It should be less money and will give you great performance.  I have one in my custom computer and it plays any game that I through at it.  I am playing Sniper Elite 5 at the moment with great success.

 

I am certain that you will have more questions once you read the information that I have provided.  Just ask.  There are no dumb questions in this Community.
