Solved!

HP PAVILION 500 PSU and CPU Hardware upgrade.

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 500-513d
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I currently own an HP Pavilion 500-513d.

 

My question is can i upgrade the PSU to a 500w or a 600w so as to power up a discrete GPU to which i am thinking of this GPU or this GPU. But any recommendations to the GPU is welcome.

 

And does upgrading the CPU with a 2nd hand i7 4790 safe and worth it?

 

And lastly, do i need to update the bios?

 

Thank you very much.

@Legatus,

In reverse order.    The BIOS is liked to the original OS.   No upgrade is possible.

The i7-4790 is worth the change.

The GTX 1650 Super should be powered by the 600W, as it will be more efficient at lower loads.
