HP Pavilion Elite HPE-210y - upgrade power supply and graphics card?

You just bought a new computer that I am generally satisfied, but it is not fit to play top games I like (for example Metro 2033).  I was looking into upgrading my graphics card and discovered that I have a 300W power supply.

I heard that HP computers are notorious for difficulties in upgrading equipment thanks to the compact design the area.  What power supply and graphics card I should be able to use?  Information links and price would be very appreciated.

I use my LG HDTV 32 "as a monitor and my current graphics card allows me to connect using an HDMI cable and play movies blu - ray via my PC.  I want to keep this feature.

Thanks for any help!

You need to open your PC and measure the physical dimensions of your diet.  Here is a list of the things to consider:

  1. Specifications
  2. Total power - important
  3. amperage 12 + v - important
  4. Modular - is not required, but I like the flexibility
  5. Warranty
  6. I7 and SLI ready
  7. Efficiency rating
  8. Cost
  9. The physical size - standard ATX PSU is 5.5 "by 5.9" by 3.4 "give or take a few tenths

www.Newegg.com has many choices of power supplies.  Corsair, OCZ, Rosewill, Thermaltake...

The amount of amperage + 12 volts is important when choosing a video card.  Depending on the size of the Cabinet from HP a 550-600 watt PSU should be plenty.  The NVIDIA GT 460 should be a good choice.

    Hi guys

    I have a HP-Pavilion VD012AA-ABU m9753uk with OS windows 7 ulitmate and I want to upgrade my graphics card to a Nvidia GTX 560Ti and I was wondering if this card would hold on my motherboard. I know that the motherboard has a PCI Express x 16 slot and be ok 1, but I don't know that I need to look at, I know there are several variants such as ATX and others because I have only a 300 watt power supply, I need to spend at least a power of 500 watts power however im don't know what connectors my computer has to power supply and what kind you provide and also is here a chance to overcharge me my other components such as my processor or CPU due to the increase in power as I currently have a graphics card Nvidia GT 220 installed if that helps at all

    Here are the specs for my graphics card (http://www.geforce.co.uk/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-560ti/specifications)

    Consult this publication document for more information.  Open your PC and measurement.  The NVIDIA 560 TI type is 9 "long.

    I don't see a problem with the NVIDIA TI 560 and the m9753uk.

    You will need a power of 500 watts.  The Corsair CX500 is an excellent choice.

  • Power supply and graphics card update


    I own a HP p6610f desktop computer and want to upgrade my power supply and graphics card.

    Power supply:

    I saw recommended Corsair CX500 and I found a CX500M of Corsair for sale. I'm fairly certain that it will work with the graphics card, I'm considering the purchase. The CX500M would work with my device?

    Graphics card:

    I have need later in the technology of graphics card but I still want to improve my current AMD Radeon HD 4200. I plan an AMD Radeon HD 6570 because it meets my needs and fits my budget. Would this work with my p6610f and a PSU Corsair CX500M?

    If it helps, I want to update the graphics card to play some place the modern games (Assassin Creed Revelations and maybe Assassin Creed 3 on low heat) and possibly install a Blu - Ray player.

    I ask because I can't seem to find an answer clear enough to calm my fears to ruin my computer if I go with these two options.

    Thank you!

    Food: The CX500M of Corsair is a great choice and will definitely enter the computer.

    Graphics card: you can get a Radeon HD 6670 for the same price as a Radeon HD 6570 and on a faster card of 20 to 25%. Or a little more money, you can get a Radeon HD 6770 and about 125% faster. In all cases, measure from the rear of the case further along the PCIe x 16 location plan. Just shy of an obstacle comes as long of a card you want.

    How to replace a video card.

    Corsair power supply (psu) I used can be mounted with the fan facing upwards or downwards depending on where fresh air is available from. Some PC cabinets have mesh ventilation where the PSU Monte so the fan should face the ventilation mesh so that fresh air can be brought into the power supply and then exhausted at the rear. Some HP computers have slots to air ventilation through the upper edges of the flanks and in this case, the PSU is mounted to the top fan. Otherwise, the Assembly of the fan should be such that the PSU will draw air from inside the Cabinet.

  • HP ENVY 700-527c: upgrading of power supply and graphics card, need help

    You just bought a NVIDIA - GeForce GTX 970 4 GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card - silver/black for my HP ENVY, but the food I have in my computer does not support this graphics card. So I was wondering if I bought the Black Corsair - CX series modular CX750M 750W ATX Power Supply - if it could fit in my computer and function properly with the graphics card and all the rest of the computer.

    Almost thought you made a mistake, but you do not have BIOS rev 8 because this unit originally comes with WIN 8. The GTX 970 attracts only 145W. Corsair CX750M is3.39"x 5.91"x 6.30".  It is profoundly in your case, without connectors.   You have so much room between the existing power supply and connectors for DVD?  NVidia recommends a 500W, I would say the 600W modular version.   Its depth is 5.51 ".

  • Pavilion 6540y: the upgrading of power supply and graphics card

    I need to update my graphics card. What is the best inexpensive card graphics and power supply to buy for my HP Pavilion 6540 Y. I use it mainly for work and graphic design. Currently, the stock video card doesn't have enough memory to effectively run Photoshop and painter with three monitors. Photoshop's request at least 512 M of memory for what I do, but I'd like to at least 1 GB. Sometimes I will have Photoshop and painter running at the same time.


    I love the Corsair CX500 or the 520w Seasonic because they adapt to the physical dimensions for your PC.

    Your first consideration should be Support HP or HP sales during the consideration of upgrades or replacement of memory. If you want to consider other manufacturers of the best way to avoid memory problems is to contact one of the leading manufacturers of memory. I would recommend that you try the tools of these manufacturers: Corsair, Kingston andCrucial. Once you have determined the DIMMs that you need, then contact commercial or technical support to check that you have selected the correct DIMMS. If you buy directly from manufacturers, then they will stand behind their products.

  • The upgrading of power supply and graphics card


    I just bought a new desktop PC HPE-020it

    appreciate any suggestion

    Thank you


    Forget the increase in ram.  The improvement of the performance would be negligible.

    Look at the power supply Corsair CX600 .  This power supply has enough amperage to run the NVIDIA GTX 570 and most NVIDIA cards less than the GTX 570.

    Review the specifications of performance ATI and NVIDIA . Look at the specifications of strip memory bandwidth and level of DirectX support.

    The graphics card will be fine, but the power supply may cause problems of space because of the type of power supply (non-modular).

    The OEM case, you should look at modular PSUS. With modular units, you don't have to figure out what to do with all the extras, the unused connectors and wiring. Modular units you come a connectn those needed.

    This OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Newegg should be perfect. I used power supply, OCZ for years and never had a problem. It is actually less expensive than the Corsair you asked.

    Your choice for a power supply will fit, but he does not meet the requirements system AMD which is 400 watts.

    The ASUS AMD 6670 that you referenced to adjust, but it is always better to open your PC control and measurement.

    This Corsair CX430 meeting the recommended minimum AMD power supply wattage size and it's actually a bit cheaper because of the available discount and delivery costs.  All the amperage 12 Volt is on a rail, so you won't have to worry about 12 volt rail for balancing.

    Yes, I have two questions about my PC.

    First, on the technical card for desktop HP Pavilion Elite HPE-210y PC, it shows a power 300 watt yet looking at the minimum requirments for the video card from the factory it require a 400 Watt power supply and the fact of the data sheet does not show the power suppy manufacturer he was wondering has.

    Second, I'm looking to upgrade the video card and I was wondering what the card would be a good replacement for a game without having to replace the power supply but if I have to adapt what power? (With a ceiling of $ 200 - $350 on power supply)

    Yes, the power is 300 watts. Minimum 400 watts are for full power to retail graphics cards. The map provided by HP was custom designed to meet the requirements of power weaker and is is not the same as a retail card. HP has traditionally used Bestec and Lite-on original UPE.

    To install a gaming grade graphics card, you will need to replace your power supply. The Corsair CX500 and CX600 are highly recommend and forum favorite. Further, these power supplies are only slightly larger than a block of power SUPPLY HP stock and are known to adapt. Power supply Idleness will put you back on the $50 - $75.

  • HP Pavilion Elite HPE 547c: upgrade graphics card for HP Elite

    I tried to replace/upgrade to update my graphics card for my desktop PC. I tried several video cards, but with each one, once it is installed and the computer turned on, the image does not register with the monitor. Everything else seems to work, but the monitor gives no answer. It was only a problem once the original video card has been removed. The current video card, I am trying to install is the NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 730.

    In the course of the years, I added a memory and the power supply has been upgraded, but all the rest are always original parts (http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-Elite-HPE-Desktop-PC-series/5035344/model/5074426/do...

    Is this a problem with the other parties, who will need to be replaced or is there something else I forget?

    Thank you.


    You're dominant, in your case, the most important factor-BIOS compatibility... more recent maps, like the gt730, require the UEFI BIOS to run... you have a LEGACY BIOS system, and cannot do anything, unless you change your motherboard... your pc is a model of early 2011... UEFI standard HP in their systems of end of 2012...

    You can watch other maps, if... the 700 series card youre looking at is a maxwell model 2014... There are in this region that come with a feature of hybrid bios which offers wider compatibility on legacy systems... or you can look at maps more old pascal/fermi architecture that work exclusively on legacy BIOS systems...

    Hope this helps
