well your motherboard has a pcie x16 slot so you are good on that front....the only thing is I cannot find the psu specs for that machine on hp website. can you open your case and find out what wattage your psu is? and a 550ti would be a nice upgrade for that rig.

Well, without even looking at the website, I'm going to say the 550Ti is not going to work.

Besides, there are much much better options than that anyway. You've got an HP, which most likely has a 300W PSU. The most you could run is a HD7750.

But I would much rather recommend a power supply upgrade and a better card. Do you have a budget?

The 7750 is much better than the GT430. Even if you wanted the GT430, there are much better options at that price range.

You don't need 2G on that card. Waist of money. ( if they exist, i dunno actually )

^^ Cards not working in 1.0 are few and far between...I have never heard of anyone having issues with a 7750 working in 1.0 slots I always thought it was even lower end cards that had issues like that

They are few and you could be right with the 7750, i dunno, 7770 is a different story maybe.http://www.overclock.net/a/the-final-answer-to-the-cont...

Only stating that there seem to be no 100% guarantee.

Tom's should make a database of known working combinations of mobo/gpu's, would save a lot of hassle.

yea for sure you are right there is no guarantee...but the chances are slim...really there is no guarantee that any computer components will work together perfectly. there is always small isolated instances of certain combinations of parts not working together
