Will a EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 be compatible with HP Envy 750-414?

I want to get a new graphics card to play PUBG.

Would you recommend any graphics card?

 

And I wonder if I can change the power supply  and get GTX 1050 TI.

Hi

 

The EVGA may be compatible.

 

The EVGA 1050 and 1050 Ti products require a 300 watt power supply (PS) and a six pin PCIe supplemental power supply connector.

 

You would have to remove the side panel and check the power supply wiring for this connector. If you have this supplemental PCIe PS connector you will not have to upgrade the (PS).

 

If you have to change the power supply, you will have to measure the dimensions of the existing (PS) unit and purchase a power supply that will fit in the chassis and have the required PCIe connectors. You have a uATX power supply.

This fact will have to be factored in when buying a replacement (PS). You also have an Ultra Slim (US) CD/DVD drive. I believe this optical drive has a modified power supply connection. You may have to purchase an adapter to provide power to the (US) optical drive unless the new (PS) (if needed) has this specialized connection to the optical drive.

 

Please provide a specific EVGA product. Some models are around six inches in length. Some 1050 models are ten inches in length.

 

You will have to measure along the PCIe x16 slot to see what will fit. The EVGA 1050 cards are dual slot.

 

Can you remove an adjacent back panel slot cover to install the new graphics card? This requires using a screwdriver to remove this slot.
