What Graphics Card can I use with my HP PC that has a 310W PSU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an HP Desktop that has an Intel Core i5 8400 processor, 16GB DDR4 Ram, an RX 550 2GB Graphics Card, and a 310W PSU that I'm pretty sure is proprietary. Currently, I can run most games fine, but if I try to run a game like FFXV at 720p low, then the FPS drops to about 20FPS. Currently, I'm thinking about getting a GTX 1650 4GB card that is powered by the motherboard, but I'm wondering if there are any other (better) graphics cards that I would be able to use in my PC. I'm not looking to underclock or overclock the card, I just want a card that'd be able to run FFXV at 1080p Low at the least

A GTX 1650 is going to be your best option unless you go for a PSU upgrade as well, that said there may be no standard upgrade option as the PSU could be proprietary in that HP pre-built.

just remember that prebuilt motherboard bioses can be fucky and the system may not boot with the new card.

 

If this happens you will need a new motherboard, case, power supply and maybe a cpu cooler.

I second this. I had a HP prebuilt years ago and learned the hard way when I tried upgrading the ram. The PC didn't want to boot after that.
