ENVY TE01-0034
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Like many others, I naively bought my HP with the hopes of adding a video card after purchase.  After hours and hours of research on forums, I have sadly come to the realization that this is much more difficult than I originally thought due to the the proprietary motherboard and 180W PSU (lesson learned).  I bought this purely for convenience and it was a pretty good deal for an i7 computer. Full Specs: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-envy-te01-0000-desktop-pc-series/29014358/model/31046765/doc...

 

Based on what I have read, I only have two options at this point: 

1. Upgrade to a 310w or 400w HP PSU depending on compatibility (which still may not meet the power requirements I need for a decent graphics card)

2. Buy a new case, PSU, and motherboard that are made for gaming... and transfer my CPU, RAM, and SSD (which I don't know for sure is even is possible due to issues with HP compatibility). 

 

I mostly want this for enhanced video and casual gaming, but do I want good quality and high frame rate. Possibly a GeForce GTX 1650 Super if I can pull off a double slot ...but I'm a little flexible on the card itself.

 

Thanks!
