HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0024
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Looking to make some necessary upgrades to my stock HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0024. I desperately need a graphics card upgrade and larger C: drive storage, I am pursuing a career in game design and need these upgraded post haste. Please let me know as to any recommendations as to what might I be able to install into my HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0024 with Ryzen 5.

@Jpiedra87 , welcome to the Community.

 

Here is the Product Specifications page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-gaming-desktop-pc-690-0000a/37730935/model/22909853...

 

If you look at the sections titled "Processor upgrade information and Memory upgrade information" you will find all of the compatible upgrades.  The Ryzen 7 2700 would be a very good upgrade for the processor.  The cooler, AMD Wraith, that comes with the Ryzen 7 is very good.  You should not have to add a third party cooler.  The maximum memory is 32 GB.

 

Now, for the video card.  This is a bit more of a problem.  The motherboard is HP proprietary.  It has a 4-pin power connector instead of the standard 24-pin ATX power connector.  You will have to buy an upgrade power supply unit (PSU) from HP.  They have a 500W PSU (L05757-800).  This is the PSU on HP PartSurfer:  https://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=L05757-800

 

You can click on the box next to Add to Cart.

 

Here is a card that  will be a fair upgrade to your current card and should fit into the space provided: https://www.newegg.com/msi-geforce-gtx-1660-super-gtx-1660-super-ventus-xs-oc/p/N82E16814137475

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will tell you more about what to consider when upgrading your video card: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7481981
