Question about Compaq Presario SR5710Y PC Desktop
I am trying to upgrade my video card and was looking into a Nvidia GeForce GT 520 and want to know. 1) if it is a PCI Express slot. 2) If I can use this card with my pc as in the description of the new card it says PCI Express 2.0
The motherboard has two pci E slots. An x 1 and an x 16
The gt 520 is pcie 2.0 x16 so you can do it. The only difference is that a v2 card in a v1 slot wont perform as well as it could. In otherwords the card out performs that slot. The slot cannot feed it as fast as it can take it.

It is possible the power supply is now too small for the number of loads you now have.Not sure what your CPU is ,but I bet it is 80 watts just by itself. The minimum wattage requirement or the video card by itself is 300 watts.Add the drives,ram,fans and mobo and you way underpowered.

A ram upgrade could help, however you may need to think about upgrading your CPU also. First check if you can upgrade your CPU. Your best option may be to upgrade to a new computer altogether.

There are four slot types for video cards.
ISA: (except for certain industrial units, this has been obsolete for about 15 years).
PCI: This standard is used for almost everything except video cards; the bandwidth of the bus is just not adequate for present video cards. In the mid-1990's video cards were all PCI.
AGP: This standard was developed specifically for video cards when PCI proved inadequate, but it too has been superceded. AGP cards usually have a "foot" cut into the board at the end of the connector tabs. It was used for desktop systems built between 1998-2007 or thereabouts.
PCI-E: This is the current standard for video cards. It is an enhancement on the original PCI standard, but needs to have a different connector.
Besides these there is on-board video, with the graphics processor soldered to the motherboard and "borrowing" part of the main memory for its operation instead of having its own graphics memory.
AGP and PCI-E slots are always placed closer to the processor than the other slots because the distance makes a difference at the speeds used in present-generation video processing.
I could not find any information on your model on the HP website. The Evo 5xx series uses a number of different form factors, including a compact desktop that apparently won't support anything other than on-board video or PCI. The PCI cards in this model are limited in size since they must fit in a small adapter ('riser") card. Would you double-check your model number? There are several Evo 510 models.
