Possible HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0083w upgrades?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0083w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

(I dont know much about upgrading PCs - keep that in mind.) So i was wondering what i could do for a case upgrade so i could have more room for more upgrades (since the case is rather small) and what i could do for a motherboard upgrade as well as a new gpu.

@unpopularperson , welcome to the forum.

 

Upgrading your computer is difficult.  HP has their motherboards and other components made to their specifications.  The motherboard has a proprietary 4-pin power connector; instead of the standard 24-pin ATX power connector.  This means that you will have to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU) with one made by HP.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will explain the things to consider when moving your motherboard to another case:  https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Moving-HP-Motherboard-to-a-new-gaming-case/ta-p/...

 

You can upgrade the processor to a Ryzen7-2700 without changing the PSU.  Also, upgrade the memory to 32 GB.  Here is the memory and SSD's that are recommended by Crucial Memory:  https://www.crucial.com/compatible-upgrade-for/hp---compaq/pavilion-690-0083w

 

A SSD boot drive is the least expensive system performance boost that you can add.  It will improve boot times and all other functions tremendously.

 

Upgrading the video card will require a PSU upgrade, as well.  Here is a Power Supply Cross-Reference chart to help you with choosing a PSU:  https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Power-Supply-Cross-Reference-for-specific-model...

 

While your computer is not listed, it is in the 690 series.  You can use any of the PSU's listed in the chart.  I believe that you have a 180W or 310W PSU installed.
