Question on what I can upgrade

HP Recommended
HP Desktop - M01-F1006na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I will be getting a HP desktop and I was wondering what I can upgrade later on, like power supply, RAM and what I can get for it like graphics card.  I was also wondering if I can use a different case for it

@Skiddies , welcome to the forum.

 

Here is the Product Specifications page for the computer: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-desktop-pc-m01-f1000i/32482405/model/37719673/document/c0668...

 

Also, the Motherboard Specifications page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-desktop-pc-m01-f1000i/32482405/document/c06432435

 

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

 

You could also upgrade the hard drive (HDD) to a M.2, SSD.  This would increase system performance considerably!

 

If you look at the sections titled "Processor upgrade information" and "Memory upgrade information" it gives you a list of compatible upgrades.  The processor information seems a bit strange since the specifications state that it comes with a 10th generation processor and the list is all 8th and 9th generation.

 

The maximum memory is 32 GB of DDR4-2666.

 

The motherboard is HP proprietary.  It has a 4-pin power connector instead of a standard 24-pin power connector.  The power supply unit (PSU) is only 180W.  This means to upgrade the video card you will have to upgrade the PSU.  You can only buy PSU upgrades from HP.  I am not certain the maximum wattage PSU that is compatible at this time.  The BakerMS motherboard is still rather new.  I believe that it may be 500W.

Hey Old Geekster,

 

Just read your article on upgrading the graphics card - 100-150 watts over the rated power consumption. Interesting - yeah, I just got my HP, and was blessed with a 310 watt PSU including the 6+2 connecter for a more robust graphics card (slightly more robust, it still is but 310 watts).  My calculations with a particular card got me to around 50 watts or less from the rating. My interpretation would be to go for a 400 or 500 watt PSU prior to going with the graphic card, based in that info. Thanks.

 

Oh, and nice avatar. Giggety.

 

Tom

You are welcome, @Tom_W2!

 

The 100W to 150W is only a recommendation.  Normally, this would apply to a computer that had a lot of room for upgrading.  Sometimes we simply have to settle for what we have available.
