Omen Upgrade

HP Recommended
Omen 870-224
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hey everyone, I've just bought this Omen 870-224 and I was wondering if I am stuck with the internals I have or if an upgrade was possible. I would to replace the motherboard, the processor, the graphics card and add on some more RAM. Is this at all doable with this product or do I just have to make do as is?

Just to clarify - "I've just bought this Omen 870-224 "  According to the spec page, that PC came out in 2017.  The components are from that era.  Not much room for a CPU upgrade but the Intel Core i7-7700 is approved for that motherboard.

 

The graphics card is listed as NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (3 GB), so a fairly decent card.  What did you have in mind for an upgrade?  If you get too aggressive, a power supply upgrade may be needed.

 

Memory - you have 8GB or memory.  It can support 16GB

Listed is:

 

  • Dual channel (one DIMM per channel) memory architecture
  • Two DDR4 UDIMM (288-pin) sockets
  • Supports PC4-17000 (DDR4-2133)
  • Supports 4 GB and 8 GB UDIMMs
  • Supports up to 4 GB on 32-bit systems
    note:
    32-bit systems cannot address a full 4.0 GB of memory.
  • Supports up to 16 GB (unbuffered) on 64-bit computers

According to the HP Spec Page  page it is 64 Bit not 32. And it shipped from HP with 8 GBI found that to be odd a Gaming system that is 32 Bit and 4 GB. If you are going to replace the board why not just replace the case and power supply?
