Which model HP do you have? It's usually printed on the front of the case. There are hundreds of HP machines after all... :)

The Pavilion a6305.uk features a PCI-Express slot for graphics so basically any decent PCI-Express card should work.

The Pavilion a6305.uk only has a PCE-E x1 slot. Those cards are for PCI-E x16. There are not very many PCI-E x1 cards out there. Your best bet will be to either get a new board or get a standard PCI graphics card. They are usually not worth the upgrade.

What games to intend on trying to play?

Edit: just noticed that Wooboi isn't the OP.


Wooboi, please create your own thread and I will be happy to assist you. Asking for help in someone else's thread is known has "hijacking" and is frowned upon here.
