Can I install a geforce gts450 into an hp p7-1019. I have it in place but there is a spot for a six plug that I don' think is on my computer.

Check if your powe supply has a 4 pin connector if not you can buy a 4 pin(molex) adaptor also check if your psi meets the minimum wattage require by your video card

You are a little to technical for me. Sorry. I am new to this. There are two plastic plugs with 4 pin holes. Is that what you are talking about?

Could you post a photo of your powersupply's label? It's the box to which you connect your PC to a power source on the wall.

There are 3 prongs on the power adaptor from the graphics card and a 4 hole plug on my computer. There are two of these.

Works great! I was confused about the pluhs because of the 3 prong plug and only a 4 sloy receptor. plugged it in anyway as this was the only option. Then finally realized RAM got dislodged and wasn't properly seated, so computer wouldn't power up. All fixed and graphics look great.
