If you are referring to the OG Pavilion 500, then no., its not. Even the newer 5XX series only comes with a GTX 1050 graphics card at most. This is passable, but only barely. Which model in particular do you have?

Hate to break it to you, but I think youre out of luck. You could upgrade your processor to an i7-4790, upgrade the power supply, add some memory and drop a video card in it, but at what you would spend, you could almost buy a more modern PC that would do better in gaming.

What are the letters at the end of the model, such as, no, nl, cn, nc, nz or qe CTO (Configure To Order)?  There are several models in the 520 series.  Some have Intel and some have AMD processors.
