I have a HP Omen 880-032nb which has a AMD Ryzen 7-1700 processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB and 16GB DDR5 RAM.
I was wondering if it is possible to upgrade these to:
- AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Processor,
- Nvidia RTX 2060 Ventus XS 6G OC or Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti Ventus XS 6G OC
and add another 16GB of DDR5 RAM with my current Higos Motherboard.
If not, what is the best possible upgrade, or is it possible to replace the motherboard so I can fully upgrade everything?
