HP Pavilion 590-p0202a PSU and CPU Upgrade

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 590-p0202a
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, recently i just bought this used HP Pavilion 590-p0202a that comes with a GTX 1650 in it. i mainly play CS:GO and i notice that the fps is not as high as i expected it would be. After doing some research i found out that i need to upgrade my CPU to AMD Ryzen 5 2600 / 3600 in order to have better fps ingame. Additionally, in order to possibly upgrade my GPU in the future i need to upgrade my PSU aswell. My questions are :


1. Is it possible to upgrade the 180W PSU, if yes what are my options? I've been surfing the forum and found out there are some options to upgrade the PSU for another HP Pavilion 590 types but i'm unsure whether it can be used for my particular model. 

2. Is it possible to upgrade the CPU from Ryzen 2200g if i upgrade my PSU?

Thank you!!

Hello @wil_saman 


That model didn't come with a 1650 from factory. I assume who ever sold it to you upgraded it themselves.

The 180w PSU isn't enough to power it. You should be running a 350-400w PSU, but your motherboard is HP proprietary and can only use a special kind of PSU. You need this one... L04618-800  Power Supply - GNRC PSU 400W SFF Entl FR.


But the HP Parts Surfer is showing its not available through HP in Australia, only USA. You would need to find a 3rd party seller online somewhere.


Yes you could upgrade to a 2nd gen R5 or R7. But I would try the power supply first. You would probably benefit more from a ram capacity upgrade to 16GB for gaming rather than the CPU for a lot of games.
