Welcome to HP Support Forums. 🙂 I came across your post and would like to help.
I understand that you have an HP Pavilion 550-109 Desktop PC and would like to know if it is possible to upgrade the GPU without needing to upgrade anything on the PC.
I did some research on this and found the hardware specifications of the PC. Click here to view the motherboard specifications.
- I checked the product specifications for the GTX 1060 graphics card and it should fit into the PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.0) slot of the motherboard. But it has a recommended power supply requirement of 400 Watts. Whereas your HP PC has 180 watts power supply. So the power will not be enough for the GPU to work and thus you will need to upgrade the power supply.

Whichever GPU you might want to install, first, please check if is a PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.0) compatible or not and also check the power supply requirement of the graphics card.
I hope this answers your question. Keep me posted for any further questions. Cheers! 🙂
