I'm looking to upgrade the graphics card on my PC. Yes I know the first obvious problem is that I BOUGHT my computer but it was my best interest at the time. So I apologize for that.

I'm planning on buying this PSU http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=76035&vpn=CP-9020047-...] to replace the stock one and I'm interested in getting either a AMD HD 7750 or 7850. Will all of this be compatible? Would I also face any CPU bottlenecking with my AMD10-5800K? Thanks for the answers.

Sorry totally forgot to include a system link http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Docume...

Hi.
PSU will work, and 7850 will work in your rig. Don't worry about bottleneck. There will be none.

7770 would be good choice also since it can run most games on med to high settings. 7850 is of course much better.

Best regards :)

Thanks for the quick response Feldmarschall! I'll let you know how it goes when I get the gpu and psu. I was just worried that the motherboard wouldn't provide enough room or something for the GPU.

It will fit.
uATX boards are just shorter than ATX boards. Witdh is same and placement of slots is pretty much same so you won't have any problems with motherboard :)

Agreed with Feldmarschall^ The HD 7850 is a great price/performance card! in the link for your rig it shows that you have a pci-e 2.0 so you can absolutely support a gpu. The only problem that you may run into is the fact that prebuilt computer cases are not really designed for airflow, however if you are looking into the hd 7850 they do run cool and are not very power hungry so you should be good. :)
