hi,
the HPE h8-1170uk is advertised as being able to take x16 GCs but it doesn't. 
i am trying to replace the NVIDIA GeForce GT545 with a GTX760 and it's mobo won't take it!
it's mobo is the IPISB-CH2 (Chicago). in the uk this is a basic 'trades description' violation, and HP should really send a free mobo to replace it, but i'll settle for paying for the right mobo to replace it if it can be found.
any suggestions welcome

Hi, it's not the mtb. It's the PSU: http://www.geforce.co.uk/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-760/specifications
It says min PSU 500W and yours is only 460W. You have to upgrade the PSU..
