  3. i wouldnt put that card in a hp computer, if you can afoord that graphics card you should just build a new rig from scratch and go with this psu http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CP-9020056-UK-Series-Modular-Supply/dp/B00FG9FZS2/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1407240819&sr=8-14&keywords=psu
  4. You'd be better off with this gpu http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-035-IN

  6. The computer is for gaming, I new nothing about computers when i bought it and don't know enough about computers now to start from scratch maybe next year i will know enough to get a new case. thanks for all the help everyone and the quick reply's but if my computer can take the PSU and GPU that i asked about then i will stick with buying them thanks again.

    Sorry if its a bit too late to respond, but there is no way you are gonna put those components in there without having problems with heating. I tried the same thing with a different hp model in the same case with just a 650ti and a 500w corsair modular. The power supply died from overheating and the graphics card has been having trouble ever since. Just because it fits in there doesn't mean it will run just fine and dandy. Wait for when you know enough to build it from scratch, then go back to it. And as for the 780, unless our doing over 1080p gaming or multi monitor, the 780 is way overkill. Also, the processor in the hp will definitely hold back the graphics card.
