Upgrade GPU for HP Envy All-in-One PC 27-b0XX

It is possible to upgrade the GPU (GTX 950m) to one that will supporting a better gaming experience - specifically MSFS 2020 since the latest update seems to be beyond the GTX 950M's capabilities?

There is no avenue to MSFS2020 with meager AIO.  

If you have about $3100 to play a $120 game, then please read on:



If you had the recommended CPU:

Ryzen 5 1500X / Intel i5-8400, and 16GB motherboard RAM,  GTX 1060 4 GB Video RAM

If you want the better play,  CPU:

Ryzen 7 Pro 2700X / Intel i7-9800X and 32GB motherboard RAM,  and either the RTX 3080 or the RTX 3070 and a PSU of 750W-850W.    That means do not purchase any of the TP01, TE01, TG01, or M01 series.  All those have an HP proprietary designed PSU, and will not satisfy your needs.  Ask before you leap.

Best style MSFS joysticks are running $240-280


So to play a $120 program you will spend: computer(see below)  $2700+ joystick + MSFS2020 = $3100 USD.

If you wait for an HP 875-1040ST (customized) with a 1TB NVMe SSD, 1-2 TB data drive, RTX 3070 or 3080, and wired mouse/keyboard.  The problem will be the PSU,  IMHO the RTX 3080 in this configuration needs an 850W PSU.   The specification page only shows an RTX 2080 and Shadow 750W.
