Interested in Upgrading Computer just want to know if I can


Hi I have an HP Pavilion Desktop that I bought from the micro center a couple of years ago

  • This is the direct link - oop didn't let me post a direct link, just look up Pavilion Gaming Computer Microcenter AMD Ryzen 5 2400G 3.6GHz Processor
  • AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB GDDR5
  • 8GB DDR4-2666 RAM
  • 256GB SSD
  • 10/100/1000 LAN + WiFi 5 WLAN
  • Windows 10 Home
  • SKU: 0
  • UPC:
  • Mfr. Part Num:

It has an RX 580 and AMD Ryzen 5 2400g

I've upgraded the RAM to 16gbs but I feel like the performance is beginning to slip

What are possible good upgrades, as I think both the CPU and Graphics are something that I want to invest in, I'm also conflicted on the case because it is smaller and I'm not sure if this would limit my ability to upgrade, it says that its



6.69 in. (169.93 mm)


11.02 in. (279.91 mm)


13.30 in. (337.82 mm)

Box Dimensions (WxDxH)

19.65 in (L) x 15.35 in (W) x 11.46 in (H) approx

So I'm not sure if I would need an entirely new case just to upgrade what I currently have, also I'm not sure how to use the PC Part builder since this computer has parts that I can't look up from HP
