Solved!

Graphic card or video card.

HP Recommended
HP Slimfit 260-a104na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I have this desktop and I would like to boost it for gaming. When I dismounted it, it looked very small and I don't know where the video card would go. If someone could please show me the video card place please and thank you.

Thank you for answering my question. When I dismounted the desktop, I didn't see any a CPU heatsink and fan so I wonder if it's normal or not. And is anything inside the desktop upgradable?

strange, it doesn't seem likely to me (strange, it doesn't seem possible to me)
I have not had this type of machine in my hands, but of all the computers I have seen, they all have a cooling system.
In addition, we can see on the image, the CPU with its fan!

If something is missing, there should be an error message at startup.
If possible take a photo!
Afterwards in order to check if everything is normal just check the temperature of the computer
you can try this:

for the upgrade there is only this:

  • Dual channel memory architecture
  • Two DDR3L SODIMM (204-pin) sockets
  • Supports up to PC3L-12800 (DDR3L-1600)
  • Supports 2 GB, 4 GB, and 8 GB SODIMMs
  • Supports up to 4 GB on 32-bit systems
    note:
    32-bit systems cannot address a full 4.0 GB of memory.
  • Supports up to 16 GB (unbuffered) on 64-bit computers
    note:
    Maximum memory shown reflects the capability of the hardware and can be limited further in the operating system.

Thank you a lot for the response. So after upgrading all of these , would it be possible to have a better gaming experience? This is the picture of the desktop.

Hello
sorry as i said it is not a computer for gamer!
It is only possible to "add a little RAM!
You can only play very poorly performing games, there is nothing we can do with this model
You can test this site to check if a game is compatible
