Upgrade

HP Recommended
Pavilion 590-P0053 na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can I upgrade the motherboard with a Graphics Video Card for gaming and if so what type?

What will need to be changed?

 

Have been trying to run Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.

Its specs

It has a spare  PCIe x16 slot for a video card that mean you can ADD a video card to your machine. But it only has 180 W internal power supply therefore you also need to replace PSU to be able to drive new video card.

Your computer lacks the basics.  Adding 4GB of RAM. and a GTX 1070 card plus a new HP proprietary 310W PSU will only give you low res basic play.
