Hi i wanted to know if I can upgrade my HP Pavilion p7-1210 which has a AMD Radeon HD 6530D graphics card to a ATI Radeon HD 5850 graphics card? My computer has a PCI Express x16 slot (1) and has 6gb of ram. I think it shouldn't be a problem but before buying I wanted to make sure. what u guys think?

The 5850 would be going back one generation and your current GPU is already a generation old. I would say save up and look for something better in the 6xxx series or better yet look at something in the 7xxx series.
