More about : pavillion p6510y video card ko888 a c 502 U Graphics card December 10, 2010 5:11:02 AM What are you planning to use the graphics card power for, gaming, 3D rendering? The p6510y has only a 250 Watt power supply. If you're not planning on upgrading the power supply then that will limit what graphics cards can be recommended. apocalypticazn December 10, 2010 1:38:42 PM I'm just going to use it for new gamer, like Black Ops, Crysis, and Startcraft 2. I've already found a great deal on a 600 Watt Psu. Any recommendations?

If PhysX or CUDA support is important to you then that limits your choice to the nVidia GeForce GTX 460. The 600 Watt PSU should be able to handle the cards listed above. apocalypticazn December 10, 2010 4:31:56 PM Thanks for the reply! I was thinking about getting the GTX 460 1G but I noticed its configured for PCI Express 2.0 I know that is backwards compatible with a PCI 16x, but how big of a performance hit would it take? apocalypticazn December 10, 2010 4:38:13 PM Best answer selected by apocalypticazn. ko888 a c 502 U Graphics card December 10, 2010 4:43:23 PM The H-RS880-uATX (Aloe) motherboard in your HP Pavillion p6510y has a PCI Express x16 2.0 slot so no loss in performance. apocalypticazn December 10, 2010 4:44:24 PM Once again thank you!!!
