Hello. If you are familiar with the original post then you know that I've been trying to unlock my 6000 pro's gaming capabilities, the problem is after thoroughly looking into the unit (which I am not at all familiar with) I found that one of the many available slots holds a graphics card that I can't run any newer or more recent games without, yes the unit did not come with the graphics card installed (nor did it have the webcam or the wifi adapter) but that's not the problem, the problem is that the replacement part is practically non-existant and the only affordable one does not have the bracket, it seems, that would hold the heatsink down, see here https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008G41X0S/ref=wl_it_dp_
I don't mind scouring the web for the parts but if they are available then they have the price that you scurry away from. Any suggestions? ~Secretely hoping HP has some of these lying around that they're tired of housing and are willing to freely part with lol!~

Is it an HP Compaq 6000 Pro Small Form Factor PC :
It is NOT an AIO machine and swapping everything including its case, motherboard ... you can have a gaming machine.

Yes, it is an AiO which I unfortunately had to swap the motherboard out of, gave an 8gb RAM upgrade and a 3.33ghz CPU upgrade. All that is missing are these few parts, other than that this AiO unit exceeds most pc game requirements.
*Update* It looks as if my "problem" might not be so bad after all, while the missing bracket for the graphics card should be on heatsink that would be needed to hold it down. All replies are still welcome. Thanks!

It won't be enough of a gaming machine to run the latest games with high graphics requirements unless you can find an MXM3 card that works.
The graphics card (MXM3 type) is probably going to be the biggest obstacle to overcome. AFAIK, the BIOS your PC has is the legacy.
type, and not UEFI
Here is a link to the Maintenence & service Guide for your AIO PC.

MXM3 video cards
There is no guarantee that the cards will be compatible with your PC. It will be a bit of a gamble. Fortunately, the cards are not, for the most part, so expensive.

Hello as it turns out I have managed to come across some of the missing components from my device and there were plenty, in replacing the motherboard I managed to acquire a wireless card, I still have no webcam but I did find the mxm graphics card and matching heatsink, everything was a-go until I installed them just to find out that my power supply wasn't enough for the card to start from but once I have that replaced I should be ok.
