Hello everyone, i got a new HP microtower pc (quite a shitty pc, i know :wahoo: ) long story short, i cant really change the fact this is my new pc.

those are the spec of this pc (sorry, i didnt find any spec on hp site so i got it from another website):
http://www.cestech.com.au/computer-systems/desktops/hp/...

in general, this is i7 pc with 320W power supply.

what would be the best option for me in this case?
ive researched a little bit around and found out that the radeon HD7750 or the R7 would fit, but im quite unsure about this. can you please tell me what my best option?

also, if there is any way i can replace the power supply to something more powerful, but still fit into the wierd hp systems, i'd happy to hear that too.


Thanks for the support!

Without a PSU upgrade the only thing will be a GTX 750/750Ti

Even with the GeForce GTX 750/750 Ti it needs a jucier power supply, built-in PSU's are garbage, you need to replace it with a much better one.

Yeah they are garbage, that is true, but he is asking what is the best without upgrade, and even though he shouldn't run a 750ti with the 320W, he can run it, and if his PSU doesn't die it will work.

As you said it is a huge recommendation to replace it with a decent one, but if he can't replace the PSU, the 750ti is the ideal GPU for him.

I run a 300W generic PSU and a 750ti SC, and I can play most if not all games just fine, no crashes, no bottlenecks, and on high preset I get always 45+ frames.

750ti definitely. It should work with the power supply you already have. If not, you can get a CX500 for $30.

That is odd, I've never heard of HP-only PSU bound systems before.
If you were to upgrade though, I could help you out if you gave me your budget.
We may be able, depending on your budget to upgrade your PSU and GPU, to something decent on both sides.

well, i didnt know its possible to upgrade the HP's PSU. i own enermax pro 82+ 525W, from my old pc. this is possible to change the PSU to another one that didnt came out from the HP's factory?

beside that, the PSU is from 2009. its working all good. should i try use it or buy new one?
