HP Desktop PC M01-F1000a (2W898AV)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was wondering if my Hp-m01 was upgradeable for gaming all the specs are the same as when I bought it, I was wondering if I can just upgrade my graphics card for slightly better fps with like a amd 6000 series. Currently I have a amd cpu with amd intergraded graphics.

@Matt218,

 

Yes, you could upgrade your HP Desktop M01-F1000nb PC Product Specifications | HP® Customer Support. Your Erica5 MOBO has a PCIe Gen 3 X16 slot you can use to install a GPU, but your PC only has a 180 watt power supply. From what I gleaned online, there is a 400 watt HP power supply that is supposed to be compatible (HP p/n: L04618-800).  However, even a 400 watt power supply limits what graphics card you could install.

 

In combination with said upgraded power supply, a low profile/low power graphics card option like the MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB is something to consider, IMO (Example: Amazon.com: MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GT LP 4GB GDDR5 HDMI/DL-DVI-D PCI-Express Video Card : Elec...).

 

Other HP Forum community members may have other suggestions.  Take your time.

 

Kind Regards,

hi

if we use the given number, 2W898AV it gives this page

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-desktop-pc-m01-f1000a/37921112/model/2100381841/product-info


So is this the model indicated, because it could be any here:

 

 

You say, for games, except it's very vague, which is the most efficient, resource-intensive used, or in sight?
Graphics card listed may be suitable, but not for all games
moreover the rest of the original configuration, is it suitable or not ..
If you have the erica5
 500w power supply is possible

you should know what the budget is, is it worth spending too much money on this model, maybe not ..

Depending on your budget, it might be a wise decision to get a whole new system.
There are plenty of deals on current systems out there, and their prices are dropping by the week.

That's because a new line-up is coming end-of-the-year, a huge shake-up to the GPU market and a whole new motherboard chipset from AMD. That and the fact that mining profitability is down immensely should mean that getting used components or new components for a custom built is now cheaper than getting a pre-built!
