Upgrade Graphics card


Good afternoon all. My first post here I bought a used HP Elitedesk 800 G5 SFF i7-9700 16 GB RAM. This pc is to stream on Twitch for my DJ internet radio show, record music (Audacity), & some photo processing. (Adobe Lightroom or Capture One) No gaming. What graphics cards can you recommend I update to without having to change the PSU which is 250 watts? Any insight or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    The 250W power supply really limits you to a gtx1630. You should ask on forums dedicated to that software you want to use if a 1630 is worth it over the integrated graphics. It may not be worth it. HP sells an upgraded power supply for those desktops so you might check into that to widen your graphics options.

    As magarity said above, you would be limited to low power consuming gpus like gtx1630/750ti/1050. Also you would need to look at only low profile video cards as the mini desk simply don't have enough height to put in a regular gpu. Also your desktop would become terribly hot as there are basically no venting in this mini desktop.
