HP M01-F0024 Upgrades

HP Recommended
6YQ59AA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just purchased this but the GPU is bare minimum to play RE2. Doing some research, I need a better Graphics card and a bigger power supply which apparently is proprietary to HP.

 

1. Am I able to upgrade to a 500w power supply, if so which brand(s) are compatible?

2. Which discrete GPU is compatible with my motherboard (Erica2)

3. Do I need more RAM (12GB currently)

@Ranier26,

Really like your ability to get to the point.  Here is some help.

The RAM question is interesting as your unit has (1) 4GB and (1) 8 GB in dual channel mode. It should be matching pairs to keep that dual mode.  It will use 8 GB across the 2 modules, then revert to single  channel mode for the last 4 GB. Not my ideal.😦

Now if you were list the performance tab (Task Manager) for the CPU and Memory.

1) Idle --nothing. No loaded SKYPE, programs, nothing opened.  The value will bounce to a low.

2) Open browser, then it is stable.

3) Open 3 other programs to load up system.

You would have some values of how much RAM is being used.
