Hey,

I want to upgrade my hp pro 3500,

With an AMD RX 570 8gb (https://amzn.to/39xT1YJ),

Kingston SSD 240gb(https://amzn.to/3fU0l35)

And a patriot 8gb ram stick(https://amzn.to/2ONa4vZ).

Will these items work with my system?

Thanks.

@mframowitz , welcome to the forum.

 

The first thing that you have to do is, check to see if the motherboard has a standard/Legacy BIOS or UEFI.  If it is not UEFI the RX 570 will not work.  It requires UEFI in the motherboard.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012 with Win 8.  The dates that I can find on your computer state 2011 and 2012.  There is a BIOS update:  https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-pro-3500-microtower-pc/5270849

 

Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide:  http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03550750

 

There is a list of compatible video cards on Page 27.  The power supply unit (PSU) is only 300W.  You may have to upgrade it.  Also, there is a list of compatible hard drives.  I suggest contacting Kingston's Tech Support to see if they can tell you if their SSD is compatible.  They are the experts on their products.  I don't want to give you incorrect advice.  When adding new technology to older technology it doesn't always work properly.
