Solved!

Replacing the Motherboard

HP Recommended
All-in-One - 20-c225t
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hi, My name is Nicholas Hibbard, as provided as my screen name. 

 

I have a All-in-One - 20-c225t, had it for a bit. And around the time when I first bought it, I realized that it didn't so well with video games. Even the less bit pixelalized games such as Team fortress 2, that's irrelevant though. I only came here for just a question, and somebody probably already put this out, but I just felt obligated to get some own personal assistance from HP employees. I was thinking, is it possible to opt the motherboard in the HP All-In-One Desktop, and replace it with a different brand, such as full set,  Nvidia Motherboard? Basically, can I turn this into a gaming improvisation?
