The Rebuild of HP Pavilion Gaming

by Khoi T Posted on: 2/2/2022

Build Description

I got this HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop a year ago, well I know OEM rebuilt is very bad but because I need a computer with good specs that can run AAA games but there was no option than buying a rebuilt that time because GPU price was sky rocket high. The build has a 1660 Super with Ryzen 5 4600G (Ryzen 5 3600), it decent for 1080p gaming with medium-high settings. After a year, the computer works fine and really well, all I need is better power supply because it only 400w and new ram (it having 2x4gb 3200mhz ddr4) because recommended ram nowadays is 16gb, and I can see it myself that sometime I get some lag spikes. But this prebuilt HP is not easy to upgrade since the motherboard and power supply are OEMs, it has different design from normal custom build, so I have to get rid of the case, motherboard, power supply and get a new one and put the gpu, cpu, ram and storage in the build. I also have 512gb + 256gb ssd so I don't really need a storage upgrade.

Favorite Feature

The computer run fine and cool, it really quiet too. It also very compact.
