The current GPU I have is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 and it maxes out on some of the games I play, mainly VR like Into The Radius, Ghosts of Tabor, and H3VR. Any recommended upgrades? Pretty much everything is stock from an HP Pavilion (link below), the only things changed are an SSD and extra RAM.
I'm happy to try and help. Could you provide the serial number on the device? I'd like to check its exact motherboard according to HP so I can confirm compatibility for new GPU options.
Upgrading the GPU in a pre-built like that can be tricky because the PSU generally doesn't have enough wattage to power a different GPU, or if it can power a new GPU it might not have enough connections to do so as well.
Thanks! Its: 2MO1443QM0
Sorry for the delayed reply!
Zuua is right. It looks like it has a 400W Power Supply that will likely struggle to support an upgraded GPU and would likely need to be upgraded as well with the GPU.
As for the GPU, it looks like the i5 10500F and the 1650 are pretty balanced together for full utilization. With that said, the VR games do tend to push the GPU harder. A great option for an upgrade would be a 4060.
This would provide a modern GPU at a decent price point while still hugely upgrading your current graphics.
Recommended power supply for use with a 4060 is around 500-550w. Getting something a bit higher like a 750w or 850w would leave plenty of room for other future upgrades for your pc if you want to go that route.
HP doesn't list what size card can be supported in the case. I recommend bringing the PC into the store to help ensure you get a card that will be able to physically fit (aka not be too long).
I hope this is helpful!
