Hello, not to be rude but i need the most professional answers (u know for sure) because ive been wanting to upgrade my Pc into a small budget gaming pc, but everyone says i cant. i have a HP pavilion P6520y and i measured everything. everything will fit and it is compatible.

I am upgrading my GPU to a Visiontek hd6850 and upgrading my PSU from 250w to 500w.
what i would like to know is, will it work? is there something im missing?

Yes, a 6850 along with a good 500w PSU will work fine (what 500w PSU?). It looks like your motherboard has one PCIe slot so that GPU should have no issues.

And the rest of the specs are good for a decent gaming rig. Those others must not have known what they were talking about. There are lots of others coming on here with a similar rig, same exact hp case and have upgraded just the gpu+psu for gaming with success.

Definately would become a nice gaming pc , a 6870 would push it even further just make sure you get a decent psu for it.

Is that your PC?
That's a decent setup, just upgrade PSU and add a gaming card, you will doubled or tripled your PC performance... :) 

Still using Athlon? You always can upgrade it to Phenom II x4 for more power...


yes its my computer. and i heard the phenom can only improve performance from my CPU by a couple of percentages. I do agree but as this little setup seems like its already breaking my tiny wallet, i think ill save up for that later on.
