Solved!

Can i use a non-HP motherboard on my Pavilion?

HP Recommended
Pavilion desktop tp01-0070
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So, I got a brand new, non-HP, $200 and $50 GPU and PSU, respectively, just to find out that they're not compatible with HP products (thanks for screwing me over, HP. Like you  have billions coming in without it <: /). So now, after 2 hours of rotting my brain trying to figure this out, I'm pretty ticked off at HP and want to just replace the motherboard, since it doesn't even have a freaking 24 pin, just 2 4-pins and another random connecter, with a normal, non-HP mother board. My questions: A) can I use the PSU i have and am just over looking something?; B) If not, can I replace the HP Board with a new, non-HP one?

Hello
my answer will certainly displease you, but I think it would be best for you
If it is this model, I don't know how they are made, but it is practically like that for many models.
You have seen it with the power supply!
So you may have some problems, for some connectors hp motherboards are specific
And it may be difficult to find the same format, but above all, will the bindings match
The case may not be very spacious!
You have understood correctly, a GPU, and a power supply
For a little more expense, you will have a box that will be suitable for a motherboard, and your power supply.
And with certainly enough space, it will be useful to you later, if you decide to change the configuration
Try to recover what is possible, in the HP, or resell it!
