I want to know how much memory can I upgrade to?

HP Recommended

I have a Omen Obelisk Desktop 875-00201zCTO/64bit/ Installed Memory 8GB. It says Memory Slot 8GB Kingston 2666MHZ. My Processor:AMD Ryzen 5 2600 six core 3.40GHZ. System board 84FEoo. I have a D drive  with 931GB available. I don't know a lot about PC's so I need help with additional memory. I play The Sims 4 and I downloaded a LOAD of custom content. I am running out of space. Can someone tell me if my system can handle it and what memory do I add? Thank you.

@PC4slightdummy,

First of all, what is the exact model # of this unit.  HP 875-0xxxZ (you have too many numbers).

You have a glaring difference of definitions.

1) Downloads are stored on the hard drive.  The D drive is void of any files, you never saved anything to it.

How to fix that: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/change-default-save-location-windows-10

2) Memory is called memory,  or RAM. It is not stored, it is not saved.

@PC4slightdummy 

To expand on the excellent advice that @wb2001 already gave you ... you are confusing MEMORY with DISK SPACE -- they are not the same.  The MEMORY is the 8GB you mentioned; the DISK SPACE is what you are running out of on the C drive.

 

You installed to the C drive, which is done by default, and that is why you are running out of DISK SPACE.

 

You can not MOVE an existing application from C to D, so instead, you would need to follow the directions that @wb2001 provided and reinstall to the D drive.  That will free up considerable DISK SPACE on the C drive.
