I would like to know what is upgradable and replaceable in the hp p6654y desktop. I have a strix Rx 470 graphics card and I'm wondering if I can put it inside the tower, switch out the power supply, motherboard, and CPU.
The p6654y is a circa 2010 Windows 7 based OS, with what is called a "Legacy BIOS". It will not support the newer UEFI vBIOS cards like the rx 470.
Changing out the motherboard creates a NEW computer, so you would be forced to purchase a new version of Windows (ie 7 or 10), and then new RAM, PSU, etc.
