I recently purchased a new pc for gaming and the video card on it is horrible. At the moment, I have a amd radeon hd 6450 but i want to upgrade to at least a 6850. My motherboard at the moment is a foxconn 2abf and i want to know if the GPU is compatable with it.

You have an hp motherboard; please list your hp model number to locate the spec page. Your board isn't listed on foxconn's website.

The hp model number should be somewhere on your hp case unless you've changed cases. It may also be somewhere in cpuz on one of their readouts.

Yes; assuming the video card will fit. I would do some measuring for the length from the ports on the motherboard to the edge of your hardrive or any other device in the front that might touch the card.
