HP Pavilion Gaming - TG01-0160xt CTO
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Okay so I bought a hp pavilion a while ago and want to take out the gpu and cpu and use it towards another pc I want to build.I want to know if it is possible or if I can’t do it I know certain pc parts have to be compatible but I’m wondering if I am able to take the gpu and cpu out and use it towards another pc. I messaged some other people about it they said they don’t know or it’s not possible at all which is why I came here to get opinions from experts/workers

@SylentGamer , welcome to the Community.

 

Your computer is a Configure To Order (CTO) model.  HP doesn't provide the Product Specifications for the CTO models because they don't know the options that you will choose.

 

The processor will either be AMD or Intel.  You will have to choose a motherboard that will have the appropriate socket, AM4, etc. or Intel sockets are LGA 1155, etc.  The GPU slot has to match the version, such as, PCI Express 3.0 x16.  The 3.0 versions are backward compatible.  You won't get the benefit of the upgrade if you don't have the 3.0 slot.

 

I know this can be confusing, so if you have further questions, please ask!
