I use this mostly with my VR headset, and have been also wanting to play some other games on steam as well. I want to upgrade whatever gives me a better performance in any aspect! I would extremely appreciate, those who are considered experts or have experience with this tower, post links, to exact parts, that they would upgrade to. Help me out please!

Hello @SPENC23 

 

Looks like you have already upgraded just about all you can that would be feasible for that system by adding another 8GB of ram.

But if you want better performance for VR and higher demanding PC games, you might as well consider buying a better system more suited for that.

You HP Pavilion is an entry level gaming PC. In order for it to be sold cheap, HP configured it to be cost effective for them. In other words, they aren't built to be majorly upgraded like a full custom PC is. The big draw back is the proprietary setup. It already has the limit for a Power Supply which is also proprietary to HP and your Lincs motherboard. So you cant add a more powerful graphics card. Your CPU could be upgraded to an i7 non K version, but I would NOT recommend it for that setup.  Only thing you could do is replace the current drive with a bigger capacity drive, but that wont increase gaming performance.

I'm sorry.
