Description

This was a pre-built from HP back in 2012 and i fixed it up and upgraded it. The case, psu, and CPU cooler aren't exact because the real ones are not on the market. I upgraded the ram and added a 120gb SSD as a boot drive, i also added the GTX 570 which i got on discount. The reason i didn't go with a better GPU was because the motherboard isn't compatible with GTX 600 series and higher.

Looked on the website for that PC and damn, its got a **** ton of customization for a prebuilt (https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03136520). No way it couldnt support anything above a GTX 500 series.

Looks like the mobo only has pci-e 2.0 x16 slots. The gtx 600 series cards and above all use pci-e gen 3.0 I think. So they’ll work, but you’ll lose a lot of performance.

The UEFI on the card might be too new for the system. It's happened before. Radeon VIIs don't boot on P55 systems from my recollection.
