Solved Is my Graphics card compatible?

Specs: Windows 7
I have a HBA008-ZA1GT 350. Is a GTX 1050Ti compatible in any way? The metal siding of the graphics card doesnt allow it to fit into the slot. Is there anyway around that?

The HBA008 is your power supply unit right? I dont see how that would impair the installation of your graphics card? What case are you using? Can you upload some pictures to a file hosting site such as https://postimage.io

You provided the model number of your power supply, not your computer or the motherboard. Without additional information we can only guess.

Additionally, that power supply is a no name and only 350 watt, so it might also present a problem.

✔ Best Answer
I believe you intended us to treat the PSU model and the fitting of the graphics card as two separate issues - right?

If the thickness of the graphics card prevents it fitting in to the slot, there is no way around that. It's a "dual slot" card which means it's takes up two slots on the motherboard. If you're motherboard can't accomodate it you will have to choose a regular, single-slot card instead.

According to my research, I don't think a single-slot 1050 Ti exists.

If you post more information we wouldn't need to guess.

What is the card hitting on that won't allow installation? Is it another expansion card, the memory, what?

Maybe he's trying to fit a PCIe card in an AGP or standard PCI slot? The only thing we know for sure is he has a crappy AcBel 350W power supply that isn't even capable of 350W. Oh wait, it says "Peak:350W (Last for 30 second)". LOL.
