You can go for Retail Plus 600W ATX Power Supply (PS60-600W) which is better for system and for video card you can go for AMD Radeon HD A6450PE31G 1GB GDDR3 PCI-E, which will be best and you can get on bestbuy, so search and get it.

HP N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX motherboard


The motherboard which is been used is been custom made by HP and you will not able to get in any of retail store. The power supply which above user have told may fit system, but can't tell properly without having dimension of it and AMD Radeon HD A6450PE31G 1GB GDDR3 PCI-E graphics card is not for gaming at all. If you go for it then you will not happy at all. I would suggest that you go for Corsair CX500 and CX600, i can't tell you about graphics card as i do not play so which will be best for you.

Re: Thinking to upgrade HP Pavilion p7-1010

The above mentioned video card and power supply unit should work properly. If you thinking to play all the latest games then would tell that you go for XFX, BFG, EVGA, Sapphire and PNY video cards which will be best for all new game. If you go for any of those card then try to purchase 9" in length card. Below is one suggestion for video card and power supply unit which might be useful and best for gaming. I have gone through review of Video card and those people have commented who have installed it and they have simply love it. So for gaming it needs clean and stable power. So for that Corsair and OCZ will be the best and made for gaming purpose. both of them provide better power for gaming.
  • XFX HD-667X-ZHF3 Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Video Card
  • OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom - Power Supply Unit
