@Brian70140 , welcome to the Community.

 

You can use any standard ATX power supply unit (PSU).  The motherboard has the standard 24-pin ATX power connector.  The first thing to do is measure the existing PSU.  Then, you can compare these measurements to the PSU that you choose.  This will make certain that it will fit into the space provided.  A fully modular PSU is good in small cases.  They allow you to use only the cables that are absolutely necessary.

 

Here is an example of what you will need: https://www.newegg.com/corsair-sf-series-sf600-600w/p/N82E16817139155

 

The PSU is the backbone of the computer.  It is not the place to try to save money.  Your components need clean, stable, power to operate properly; especially, with the new high power gaming video cards.

 

If you don't want to go with a modular PSU, here is an example: https://www.newegg.com/corsair-vs-series-vs600-cp-9020224-na-600w/p/N82E16817139266?&quicklink=true

You are very welcome, @Brian70140!

 

Q: I ran a performance test on my computer and it came back as telling me I am missing an SSD. It's telling me if I move my system to an SSD it will yield far faster boot time, better system response and fast application load time. I am not sure what an SSD is.

 

A: This is some of the best advise that you could have given!  A Solid-State Drive (SSD) is  a board with memory chips on it.  Because there are no moving parts, like a Hard Drive Disk (HDD), it is far more reliable and much faster.  The latest version of the SSD is a M.2.  There is a M.2 socket on your motherboard.  Here is the description: One M.2 socket 3, key M.  There are numerous guides online to help you understand what a M.2., SSD is and how to install them.  Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will help you with the transition.

 

I hope this help your understanding of SSD's.

@Brian70140 

 

I am beginning to question if you have a M.2 socket on your motherboard.  Crucial Memory only lists standard SSD's.  Look at the link that I provided at the bottom of the page to see what I mean.  They normally list both the SSD's and M.2's if they can both be used.

 

Here is the Motherboard Specifications page.  You should find the M.2 socket on the motherboard diagram and open the case to see if you can find it.  Please let me know.

Thank you for the help!

 

I was able to find a slot right next to my graphics are that read M.2 SSD  

 

I was also able to find one that said M.2 WLAN - but it had a broadband wireless chip next to it or in it?

 

 

I was also looking at this one - It states its 100% compatible with my model

 

Your thoughts.....

 

SAMSUNG 870 EVO 1TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-77E1T0B/AM)

 

 

I really appreciate your help!

You are very welcome, @Brian70140!  I am always glad to help.

 

The Samsung SSD that you listed should definitely work with your motherboard.  However, it is a standard SSD and not a M.2.  You can still use it for the boot drive and use your HDD for storage.  It would be a shame to have a SSD and not use it as the boot drive.  Samsung provides their Data Migration software to clone the HDD to the SSD.  Also, they have their Magician software to tweak the SSD for the best performance once it is running as the boot drive.

 

Good luck!
