No, DDR4 RAM is not backward compatible with DDR3 RAM, physically won't fit.

@FEMY, welcome to the forum.


No, you can't use DDR4 memory in a motherboard that comes with DDR3 memory.  The best upgrade that you could do is install a SSD.  The SSD would boost system performance a lot.


Here are the memory upgrades and SSD's recommended by Crucial Memory.

I was going to check product specs for this system.


Gaming is usually improved by upgrading the graphics card.


Is HP Support changing how one accesses general and detailed product information?


There are no links for system or MB specifications.


No links to drivers.


HP provides a general system information scan option which will not work unless you access support using the target PC.


This will make it very hard to help forum members if you can't access specific PC system details.


Or am I missing something?


It looks like HP is now requiring an account and registered products to access product information.

Just a quick note, yes the website was having problems over the weekend. Its working now.


Here is the specs page...


As the others have mentioned, you will increase performance best by adding a graphics card and SSD.

Which graphics card depends on what games you play. I assume its mostly eSports so a 1050/1050ti would work best without having to replace the 300w Power Supply.

Your motherboard also uses an M.2 Sata SSD port.


If you have other questions, ask. One or the other of us will help as best we can.
