Hi:

 

The specs state that your PC can come with either a 180W or 310W power supply.

 

HP 285 G3 Microtower Business PC Specifications | HP® Customer Support

 

Do you know which power supply your PC has?

 

If it has the 310W P/S you can install any of the supported graphics cards listed in the specifications, plus the Nvidia GT 1030 and the Nvidia GT 1050ti.

 

If it has the 180W power supply, I recommend the Nvidia GT 710, Nvidia GT 730 or the newer Nvidia GT 1030 which even has a slightly lower power draw than the GT 730.

Thank you.

Its a 180W PSU. I could upgrade it for 300W, however, it seams its not a standard PSU.
