I'm getting into pc gaming, but my gpu and cpu are lacking quite a bit with modern titles, I want to upgrade my cpu and gpu but I dont know what I can upgrade to. What is compatible with the sunflower motherboard?
I upgraded mine with the same components to Ryzen 5 2600 and the GPU to 1660TI, but I also tested it with up to RTX2070.
So if you are not afraid of getting a second hand GPU I would say go with the maximum one that you can buy for the money you have.
R5 2600 is $140 new, R7 2700 is $200 new, consider upgrading the cooling as well to something better, I have Big Shuriken 3, so another $45-50.
So if the CPU and Cooler is $200, use the rest to get the best GPU that you can get, obviously make sure that is smaller that can fit in the case, no longer then 9.2''. That's it, I have a big library of videos on those specific Pavilion desktops, do a quick search on YT.
