Solved!

ram

HP Recommended
HP 790-0109
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I JUST ran a crucial ram test on this computer, it has 16GB.    Crucial tells me i can put 128GB of ram in this computer for $500.

Would the price be worth the increase in performance

@buzz1256 , welcome to the forum.

 

Here is the Motherboard Specifications page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-gaming-desktop-pc-790-0000i/20395823/document/c0600...

 

If you look at the section titled "Memory upgrade information" it shows supports up to 32 GB (unbuffered) and 64GB unbuffered (with 16GB DIMMs) on 64-bit computers.

 

I have found that Crucial Memory has been stating the maximum is more than HP, lately.  You should go by what HP has in their specifications.  I would say that 16 GB or 32 GB would be far more than you will need unless you use CAD design software.  The fastest memory is DDR4-2666.  I don't believe that you would see much difference by going higher than 16 GB.
