Hi i was wondering if it is possible to add a new GPU into this specific PC. I know it comes with an integrated graphics card so its not meant for upgrade ability but is it possible to switch the motherboard and add a low profile GPU like a GTX 1050 and a gaming motherboard. If you can, please list if there are any places which can do this for me.

:welcome:   CoolKev101,

 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but what you are asking is not possible and for the following couple of reasons;

 

1: AIO computers use the equivalent of a notebook MB and have no PCI-E X16 slot designed for a dedicated add on video card.

 

2: The power supply for an AIO computer is also akin to a notebook and cannot produce the much higher wattage and amps that an add on video card requires.
