    Hello,
    I am considering to buy a new graphic card for my HP Compaq DC5850 Small Form Factor.
    I have one PCIe x16 port that is not used and that is for graphic card. But when I was looking for documentation for my or my PC I found this sheet. URL: https://www.support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-compaq-dc5850-small-form-factor- /3658106/document/c01587146
    There is one box which contains names of graphic cards. I searched for it and I found that those are only 512MB. To be honest this is quite small amount of memory, so I searched for something larger. I found GIGABYTE GeForce GT 710 2GB graphic card. It plugs into PC via PCIe x16 and has great 2GB of memory. But I do not know if it will be compatible with my PC (it was made in 2008).
    Specification for my PC:
    RAM: 8GB Dynamic RAM 800 MHz
    CPU: AMD Athlon Processor 1640B, 2,7 GHz
    Graphics: Integrated ATI Radeon 3100 Graphics (256MB)
    PS/2 Mouse, Keyboard

    That is all I could find,

    The card you are talkig about is compatible with PCI Express 2.0 X8. I think it means it should work since PCIe versions are supposed to be intercompatible and you can certainly fit a x 8 card in a x 16 slot.

    Chances are your computer is using PCIe2 (which matches the card) but even if it isn't, it should work. Just keep in mind that if the computer has a lower grade PCie spec , the gpu will work faster than the computer bus and therefore you will be wasting money.
