I'm needing a 500w power supply, what options do I have with this pc?

I'm going to upgrade my graphics card too, so if you could offer me a suggestion for that, then that would be great! I'd like to keep my graphics card under $200.

Also, I'd like to keep the power supply under $100.

  2. I have used this PSU in HP comptuers and it works great:

    This is a good GPU upgrade - not top of the line - but good for general gaming on your computer:

  3. THanks for the answers guys. Do you think that there would be any size issues with my tower being smaller? More or less with the graphics card.
  4. I have installed an XFX 550W Core Edition Full Wired (Bronze) - P1-550S-XXB9 in an HP Pavilion. It's quieter than the Delta Electronics OEM power supply that was originally in there. It's also made by Seasonic for XFX.

    XFX Core Edition PRO550W (P1-550S-XXB9) for $69.99 ($59.99 after $10.00 rebate card)

    I would also recommend the same EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB that @imomun linked to.
  5. I have similar HP cases - they are all slightly different. Take a tape measure and see how much room is available. The card is 9.49" (length from the back of the case to the tip of the card) and 5.39" (height - this shouldn't be a problem) x 1.67" (wide - this shouldn't be a problem either).

    The PSU is a standard size...they are always a little snug, but they fit.
  6. The HP Pavilion p6-2350 should be able to handle a 9.5" long graphics card.
