@franciscommm , welcome to the Community.

 

The power supply unit (PSU) is only 310W.  Therefore, it will have to be upgraded to use any of the newer video cards.  Here are the Product Specifications for the computer.  The motherboard in your computer is HP proprietary. It has a 4-pin power connector instead of a standard 24-pin ATX power connector. You will have to buy any PSU upgrade from HP.  You should contact HP Customer Support to see if they have any information on which of their PSU's will be compatible with your motherboard (BakerMS).  I would recommend one with 500W if it is available.  Once you have this information I will try to help you find a good video card.

Hi @franciscommm   @old_geekster 

 

if it' s  this model @franciscommm  ?

 

if you have no more idea than that for what needs to be added
please specify which type of games, some examples
It is possible that the graphics card is not your only weak point, in which case @old_geekster  can tell you what more to do can be

Memory
8 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB)
 
256 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD

little memory
low disk space
