1st. What is the maximum amount of physical RAM supported?  I can't find the maximum memory in the specifications provided by HP.  However, here is the memory that is recommended by Crucial Memory: https://www.crucial.com/compatible-upgrade-for/hp---compaq/envy-te01-1287cb

 

It states in their specifications that the maximum amount of memory is 64 GB.  I know this isn't possible since there are only 2 slots (2x1).  I would say that you should be safe with 16 GB (2x8).  However, before you buy any memory I would contact their Tech Support to see what they have to say.  If they recommend their product it is guaranteed to work.  You should use CPU-Z to determine the manufacturer and timings of the current memory: https://download.cnet.com/CPU-Z/3000-2086_4-10050423.html

 

You will find this information in the section titled "SPD".  Give this information to Crucial's Tech.  This will allow them to know if your memory is compatible with theirs.  If not, you will have to replace it.

 

2nd. What is the highest graphics card supported?  The current PSU is only 180W.  This is not enough to power any new video card.  Your motherboard is HP proprietary.  It has a 4-pin power connector instead of the standard 24-pin ATX power connector.  This means any power supply unit (PSU) upgrades have to be purchased from HP.  The most powerful PSU that HP provides for your motherboard is 500W (L05757-800):  https://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=L05757-800

 

It has 1x6+2 PCIe power connector for the video card.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article to tell you what to consider when you upgrade your video card: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7481981

 

The two main things to consider when upgrading is 1) the length of the video card and 2) the wattage required to operate it properly.  The article tells you how to measure to assure that there is enough space for the card to fit with enough space for good airflow.  Airflow is extremely important with high power cards.  They develop a lot of HEAT! 

 

Once you have read the article you should have a good idea of what will work with your computer.  If you have further questions, please let me know.  I am here every day at some point.

 

I have one very good upgrade for you.  A boot M.2, SSD.  Your motherboard has one M.2 socket 3, Key M, (2280/2242).  This is the least expensive upgrade to improve system performance.  You could use your hard drive (HDD) for storage.  Here is a HP Knowledge Base article to help transition from the HDD to the M.2, SSD: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Upgrading-Desktop-or-Laptop-to-a-SSD/ta-p/73048...
