What’s the fastest processor available for this desktop? How to install it?

@Jo0402

Welcome to HP Forums,

Let's get straight to it!

 

HP doesn't support or recommend changing the processor of the device, however,  

It should work fine with most applications, that said, to run Netflix & Hulu you'll need to ensure the network speed is intact as here are the basic requirements of Hulu (And most likely Netflix as well)

 

The internet connection speed requirements for Hulu are as follows:

  • Standard Definition: 1.5Mbps
  • 720p HD: 3Mbps
  • 1080p HD: 6Mbps
  • Hulu with Live TV: 8Mbps

I hope that helps!

 

Let me know how that pans out

I will have a colleague follow-up on this to ensure it's taken care off, in case you don't respond in the next 24-48hrs,

Feel free to give me a virtual high-five by clicking the 'Thumbs Up' icon,

Followed by clicking on 'Accepted as Solution' as it would help the community gain more knowledge and have a great day Ahead!

@Jo0402

If you could provide the model name of the device you have, I should be able to recommend an apt graphics card, although, you should be fine with any graphics card that has the power requirements as per the power supply in your computer,

if you need help finding the product information, check this link out: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03754824 

 

Keep us posted.

Thanks for the details,

I've verified that your product has a simple 250W PSU, which means it's not built for upgrades if you wish to upgrade the graphics card, the only card that would work with it, is the Nvidia GeForce gt 730 2gb ddr5

And as mentioned previously HP doesn't recommend upgrades, so you could make these changes at your own discretion!

 

If you wish to upgrade to other graphics cards, be sure to change/upgrade the PSU to either 300W or higher to support the same (personal suggestion).

 

I hope that answers your query,

If it did, simply select "Accept as solution", to help the community grow, 

And if you wish to thank us for our efforts, click on the thumbs up for kudos.

Have a great day ahead.

@Jo0402 yes, the 730 (DDR5 version) is all I could find that may work on a 250W PSU, however, I would personally suggest upgrading the PSU to upgrade to a better graphics card of your choice.
