Question about graphics card upgrade.

#1IlovegirlsPosted 12/28/2013 2:53:52 PM
have a hp pavilion p71157cb with an amd quad core with an amd radeon 7750. It's good but not great. Can I upgrade my GPU without putting in a new psu? Thx

That would depend on how good the PSU is.
I did a quick search on the PC and didn't see anything that mentioned anything about the power supply.
Since it is a HP prebuilt PC the power supply is likely not that powerful and likely would require a new PSU for anything more powerful than your 7750.

Replacing the psu is really simple. you can get good ones for cheap.
