I want to upgrade my graphics card and power supply but I do not know were to start I asked this question earlier and I got this answer but does any one have any other recommendations for good graphics cards and power supplys that I should use for gaming
It is a very simple answer. You computer will only support BIOS graphic cards. The problem is 2 issues. BIOS cards predate Sepetember 2012, so your asking to find a card like the GTX 660. The HP6000 series predates 2012. IF you could find the card, you need to change out the Power Supply to operate the card. The Corsair CX550 would be my choice.

Nope, not for a system thats as old as yours. That old core 2 duo cpu isnt worth the money wasted on an upgrade. It will bottleneck any modern graphics card, even if you could install one. Its ok for an email machine, but not for gaming.
Sorry, but thats my suggestion.

Welcome back to the forum.
I am not a HP employee.
The previous answer given to you covers the problems you will have because of the age of your PC. I don't know what HP product you have because Pavilion 6000p is not a valid product number but Pavilion p6000 yields four PCs and eight motherboards.
Nvidia 600 series graphics cards are the limit. 600 series cards will be very hard to find. Maybe used on eBay?
The Corsair PSU mentioned is a good PSU.
You may have other bottlenecks to deal with such as the CPU, memory, and DMI. Some newer games may not play well on your PC because of other possible bottlenecks.
I would go to this site (Link). Input the games you want to play. Check the recommended system requirements to see what you need to play the games. Or you can check your PC against each game to see if the PC will be able to play the games.
