HP Pavilion Gaming - TG01-0023w

Hey, just wanted to ask what Graphics card can I upgrade to with 400W PSU? I want to upgrade my PC for better performance..

I currently have a Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 Super with a AMD Ryzen 5 3600X (i think) and 16GB RAM.

I’m thinking of also upgrading my CPU so it can work well with my GPU. 

 

I was thinking of getting an ASUS RTX 3050 and a AMD Ryzen 7 5800X… will they work? If not recommend me ones that do.

 

I can’t upgrade my PSU, so I just want to know the best options for my CPU and GPU. PSU has 400W

@Ahmed_B4dr,

 

Welcome to our HP community forum!

 

Btw, your HP Pavilion Gaming - TG01-0023w (6YR56AA) as fitted with an Erica motherboard (SSID: 8643), can be upgraded with a 500-watt power supply (p/n: L05757-800).

 

Anyway, with your 400-watt power supply, one of the (if not the) best graphics card both in performance and affordability to pair it with, would be a smaller-sized (two fan) RTX 4060, such as this purchase example for under $300: Amazon.com: MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 4060 8GB GDRR6 Extreme Clock: 2505 MHz 128-Bit HDMI/DP Nvlink TOR....

 

The best compatible processor for your desktop would be the Ryzen 7 3700X:

You can purchase one of them via an eBay Seller for around $100: Ryzen 7 3700x for sale | eBay.  Make sure you buy from a "Top Rated" or "Trusted" Seller who allows for returns.

 

Hope this was helpful.

 

Kind Regards,

Thanks a lot!  @NonSequitur777

Are there any wires I must get with the GPU? And what is the recommended thermal paste I should use?

 

Oh right, by chance what is the best Hdd Hard drive can I put in my Pc? And what wires will I need for it?

@Ahmed_B4dr,

 

Your 400-watt power supply should have one 6+2-pin PCIe power cable -please locate it, which is all you need to power an RTX 4060.

 

The best HDD? As in hard disk drive?  -One of the best hard drives customers like best would be the Seagate BarraCuda 2TB (3.5 Inch SATA 6Gb/s 7200 RPM, 256MB cache, ST2000DM008/ST2000DMZ08).  Your PC should already be equipped with both SATA data (p/n: L71951-001) and SATA 15-pin power cables (p/n: L68308-001) to hook up a drive like that.

 

I assume that your primary (boot) drive is an M.2 NVMe SSD, as your motherboard has a slot for that.

 

Kind Regards,
