Solved!

Upgrade with GTX 1050

HP Recommended
550-122nl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone, for Christmas, I decided to upgrade my computer with a powerful graphic card (GTX 1050). Can you guys tell me, which model is compatible with my setup? Also, would my actual PSU support the new GPU? If not, which should I buy?

Thanks 🙂

P.s: (Is THIS model compatible?)

@GamingOrbit,

 

Thank you for showing your interest in HP Support Forums. It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel. I understand you are looking to upgrade the graphics card on your PC and you need assistance. No worries, I'll be glad to help you.

 

I did go through the Product specifications and found that your PC was shipped with NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 (Aries M1 - 4GB).

 

After reviewing the  Motherboard specification which shows there is One PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.0) slot available on your PC.

 

and Here's the specifications of the graphics card - https://www.nvidia.com/en-in/geforce/products/10series/geforce-gtx-1050/

 

you should be able to go ahead and upgrade the graphics card only thing that you would need to check is the power supply.

Currently on your PC, you have 180 W uATX Energy Star 6.0 internal power supply

 

Where as the recommended power supply for the graphics card is 300 W. So please check the power supply and its form factor.

 

Disclaimer: HP Doesn't recommend any upgrade/downgrade of any hardware parts or software that is bundled with the product. It may affect the manufacturer's warranty and performance. You can change the configuration at your own risk

 

Hope this answers your question.

Good luck and keep me posted about the developments. If this helps, please mark this as “Accepted Solution” as it will help several others with the same issue and give the post a Kudos for my efforts to help. Thank you and have a great week ahead. 🙂
