Upgrade (HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0006ns).... WHICH CPU and GPU? IF ANY

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0006ns




I'm looking for possible compatible CPU and GPU to upgrade my PC...


I know there is a problem with the power supply and I have to upgrade it to 500W... But there is a problem: my motherboard which is a "non standard PSU with proprietary wiring"... I DON'T UNDERSTAND...


Can anybody explain to me (CLEARLY, IN DETAIL, AS IF I WAS A CHILDREN) how can I change my power supply to 500W and also: 

1. What model of Power Supply should I use for my specific model (not the one in the other forum link)

2. What GPU do you recommend? Can I use the new GTX  1660 Ti (small  and low power consumption)? Are there any compatible at all?

3. What CPU do you recommend? Is the Intel Core i7-8700 (3.2GHz) the only possibiliy?


Thank very  much for your expertise and insights... THANKS

First of all, you did misrepresent your computer. The HP 690-0006ns has a GTX 1050Ti as the base GPU card, with a 310W PSU, with a Lincs motherboard.  HP has numerous motherboards that do not comply with the ATX PSU standard.  The wiring it NOT the same. The motherboard power sockets are not the same.

The simple fact is that the motherboards ie, Sunflower, Lincs, and Berks all have the same power supply connectors. There seems to be a pattern. There is a correlation between PSU's in different models. At this time, I am unwilling to publish my full data sheet until I get an answer from Taiwan.

What I can tell you is that the Berks has a 400W, L04616-800 and a 500W PSU, L05757-800 available. What is interesting is the fact that the same 301W PSU , L03980-800 is found in the Berks and the Lincs motherboard.


Now a unique tidbit:

The HP 795-0050 has the GTX1060 and a 400W PSU.  The GTX 1660Ti and GTX 1060 are both 120W cards.

On the CPU answer:

The max cpu listed for your board is the I7-8700.  (As shown in the 795-0050 using the I7-8700 chip).


Can you connect the dots?
