OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 870-210
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm wanting to upgrade my GPU and CPU, and was wondering if these items were compatible with my PC, I've already added an additional 16GBs of RAM
CPU: 

$26/mo - Finance Intel Core i5-12600K Desktop Processor 10 (6P+4E) Cores up to 4.9 GHz Unlocked  LGA...

GPU:

$49/mo - Finance Sapphire 11310-01-20G Pulse AMD Radeon RX 6600 Gaming Graphics Card with 8GB GDDR6,...

If not, could anyone recommend some similar alternatives that are compatible?

Your OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 870-210 (Z5M40AA) according to: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-870-200/13687063/model/15789213/document/c05380402, is fitted with the Thimphu-K motherboard (SSID: 2B4B), which has an LGA 1151 processor socket, and is only compatible with Intel's 7th gen processors, the i7-7700K being the best one you could install. The Intel i5-12600K you referenced requires an LGA1700 socket, btw.

 

As far as the AMD Radeon RX 6600 GPU is concerned, this graphics card requires at least a 500-watt power supply according to: https://www.sapphiretech.com/en/consumer/pulse-radeon-rx-6600-8g-gddr6, whereas your desktop came with a 300-watt stock power supply.

 

However, your motherboard is 24-pin ATX power-enabled, so you could swap your 300-watt power supply for a 500+ watt ATX power supply, and then the RX 6600 would work just fine for you.

Hope this was helpful.
