Hello,

Well I bought a new computer not long ago and I decided now that I'm going to get a graphics card for it. I don't have any experience adding any cards so I don't know much. After doing some research I decided I wanted the radeon 5770, and that I would need a new power supply for it.

my computer: http://www.amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-P6310F-Desktop-Black/...

Graphics card: http://www.amazon.com/XFX-Radeon-5770-Graphics-HD577AZN...

Power supply: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CMPSU-450VX-450-Watt-Cert...

My question is will all these work correctly together, and will that card and power supply fit in my case.

Thanks for any help!

Yup, I agree with redechelon!

I would suggest you upgrade the power supply to at least 550W or better in order to "future-proof" yourself on the power side of things. I have the 5770 and you will not be disappointed.

Might I recommend a AZZA Modular Power Supply Amazon Link - AZZA Dynamo 650W

Or: Newegg link - OCZ ModXStream 600W (which bought before 6/28 would be 69.99 or 49.99 after mail-in rebate)

With an HP stock case you biggest enemy is going to be heat. I suggest getting a modular supply like I listed so you only use the cables you need and the rest you don't have to leave dangling, obstructing airflow, or impeding heat escape.

Feel free to keep asking questions!

i really think you can build your own for cheaper and i also thing that 6GB of RAM is overkill. If you already have a copy of Win7 64 bit, then build it yourself. if you want, i can post parts for you and total cost. My only concern is that with the HP system, you won't be able to overclock! and where's the fun in that?

Thanks for the replies everyone.

@makwy2- That ocz looks like a really good deal, I think I'm gonna have to jump on that Thanks! lol.

@jonpaul37- I already own that HP, I've had it for awhile. I probably would have been better off building one, I just had no idea where to start lol. I have thought about slowly replacing parts on it though.

Also does anyone have a link to a good guide for installing a graphics card. For the psu, I figured I would take a couple pictures of how mines setup now for reference, but I'm not sure exactly on what needs to be done for the graphics card.

Thanks again!

It's very simple. Just insert it into your PCI-E slot til it clicks, Screw it down at the back of your case on the inside and then plug in the power connectors in the end of the card. You might have to remove two of the plates on the back of the case so the ports can stick through.

Thanks to everyone for the advice and information. I was about to go ahead and order my card and psu, but decided to check here again. And of course I noticed someone had posted this deal for the gtx470 and a power supply for 299.99: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... . That sounds like a really good deal. What do you guys think? Should I spend 70$ more dollars to get that or stick with the 5770?

A GTX470 will eat a HD5770, bones and all and the HPs' Phenom will not be a serious restriction (if any).
If your monitor is 1280x1024 or 1440x900 then the 5770 is more than ample, if the monitor is larger then the GTX470 is going to be a worthwhile investment-a little too much for now but you'll not need to replace it for some time.
