Hi, I have HP 656933-001 motherboard with a intel i7-3770 CPU. Is it possible to add a separate video card to this motherboard? Thanks for any help you can give.

I assume this is in the corresponding 8200/8300 Elite Small Form Factor case? You'll need to use a Low Profile card, in the style of this example, which a purchaser reports successfully utilizing in an 8200 Elite:

It is possible but i will agree if this is small form factor there may be issues.

If you have a saw or a dremmel you may be in business though :P

Good chance you will also need to update the power supply, OEM units usually are minimal at best.

Thanks for the responses. Yes, it is a 8300 SSF.  So either one of these would work?

And would you happen to be able to tell me the differences in these two cards? They look very similar to me. Thanks for your time, it is greatly appreciated.

You better look at the specs for your machine, I have a Gforce 1G it requires 350 watts.  I use a 400 with it!  I very much doubt your system has the snot to run one of those cards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Based on searching for your HP 656933-001 motherboard, I found the following from HP:

 

HP Compaq 8300 Elite Business PC Small Form Factor (you'll want to verify that this model is an exact match to yours)

Yes, it has a 240w PSU. I believe the Nvidia K600 has a maximum draw of 41 watts. I'm not sure how to calculate how much the system is drawing now but I was hoping that 41 watts would not be to much.. Thanks for the links, this is all great information! And BTW, I'm not sure where my saw is at this time, but I have an acetylene torch and I'm not afraid to use it!  :woot:
