Updating graphics card

Product Name: Hp pavillion HPE series h8-123
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)
I am looking into updating my graphics card to increase the settings that I can run games on. I currently have the stock graphics card that came in it when I bought the tower. Any suggestions that are compatible and would increase its performance?

Hi,

 

Would your model number be the h8-1234?  If yes, then you will need to also replace the PSU to run the higher performing graphics cards.

 

 

The AMD RX 480 is highly rated and costs between $185 and $330 depending on make and model. It supports supports "freesync".

 

The NVIDIA GTX 1060 is in the same price range as the AMD RX 480 but it supports gsync.

 

If it doesn't matter if you don't plan on using freesync or gsync if your monitor doesn't support either technology.
