I went with the Corsair MP510 for my SSD, but there are plenty of other good options from which to choose. You definitely want to make the SSD your operating system's primary boot drive, so keep that in mind when selecting the size of the SSD you will install... I went with half the size of the HDD that came with the machine, so 500 GB, which is probably about double what I reasonably need. While you're fiddling around inside your new machine's guts, you may as well go ahead and fill the empty RAM slot with another 8 GB for a total of 16 GB of DDR4 RAM.

After these simple updates, you have converted a budget/value box into kind of a monster of a machine for what is still a very reasonable price. You can also pretend like you built your own computer when the effort involved is far less than a complete build would require and if you're like me, you'll learn a few things in the process. If you're reading this review, you already know an NVMe SSD is compatible with this machine's motherboard, which is more than I knew about solid state drives before I purchased this machine.

Oh, I should mention that Amazon does provide people to help you work through the endless departments you will be hot-potatoed between any time you endeavor to contact a human being with actual technical knowledge at any of the large computer manufacturers. I literally was under the impression that HP only offered AI technical help until Judith with Amazon's concierge tech support team confidently assured me she would find the elusive human technologist amongst the ocean of machines who work over at HP. She did too... Thanks Judith, you're the best!

I got this on prime day for $480 with $80 back in rewards points so for $420 (nice 420 lol ) bucks it's worth every penny even for $500 it's still a good deal if you can pick it up for under 500ish it's worth it anything more and I recommend building one but it runs overwatch at MAX settings with ZERO lag or framerate issues it'll run MOST games on high-medium settings point blank really nice pc it's very small and quiet and looks good

Purchased on Amazon Prime Day for $479. For an extra $100, I added a 500GB NVMe M.2 SSD, and a second 8GB RAM stick. The RX 580 video card isn't top tier, but it's plenty good for all of the games I want to play at 1080p. The AMD Ryzen 5 2400 (4 cores, 8 threads) can be upgraded to a Ryzen 7 2700 (8 cores, 16 threads) as they're socket pin compatible, but that would be an additional $200 and I don't think I need a Ryzen 7 for gaming. But it's nice to know that I can if I were to want more horsepower for image editing. Very happy with this system as I haven't seen anything comparable in this price range.

first off you can not over clock the GPU with MSI afterburner or any other software that i know of. but for less the 600 you get a very capable gaming PC. i play Escape from Tarkov around 90-110 FPS 1080P with some dips to 80 on highest setting. i did add 8GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD. i have seen some reviews that talk about the 400W power supply not being big enough they are wrong, the i5 9400F only takes 65W and the 1660 TI is 120W. i have never seen the PC pull more then 226W when gaming. yes the MOBO is not the best but it does have a H370 chip set. if your looking for a cheap good PC to game on this is the one.

This computer is a great beginner option. The only problem is that the ram will be 5.9GB out the box because the integrated gpu takes up 2GB of ram. After the bios update, my ram increased to 6.9GB. I later added an 8GB stick of ram and it immensely helped the performance of this PC. 16GB is the perfect amount for multi tasking. I would also update the hard drive to a SSD. In terms of GPU It is not upgrade friendly since it is compact in size so you may be able to use a mini graphics cards if you want to upgrade. But the stock graphics card is more than capable of gaming. Other than that, 470 dollars was a steal of a deal.

The specification of this computer on paper looks great for it price. The way the company has configures the system is heavily restricting the performance potential of the hardware in the computer. 1. RAM: This has 8GB 2666Mhz with the 2 problems with the RAM is it is only single channel instead of dual channel which, especially on AMD Ryzen processors, has a considerable performance impact in CPU performance. The second problem I have with both the memory and the CPU is the 2400G is an APU and it has a permanent hardware reserve of 2GB out of 8GB of the RAM. This cannot be disabled with its very limited BIOS settings nor with any software. The problem here is it already having dedicated graphics and it still reserves 2GB of RAM that I can't use unless they make a fix where the APU memory can be disabled. Until then, this does not have 8GB of RAM it only has 6GB which causes problems with stuttering because games don't have enough available memory. Another problem I have with the computer is with the GPU. The GPU that is in this computer has big performance handicaps because of its design. The card only has 1 FAN AND 1 SIX PIN POWER CONNECTOR. An RX 580 which has a TDP of 185W has 1 fan and one 6 pin power connector. I checked using GPU-Z that HP has limited the board power of this card to only 150W 35 watts less than a normal RX 580. This can be solved by using MSI Afterburner and increasing the power limit and adding a custom fan curve. One thing I do like it it has a 400W 80+ Platinum power supply which fan runs silent most of the time. This only cost $479 on prime day so for the price you can't go wrong even with all the complaints I have with it.

This review is for the intel i5, 8gb, version with the 1660ti nvidia card.

I got this PC specifically for setting up a virtual lab where I could have several virtual machines running at the same time. Ive had it for two weeks now and it has performed perfectly!

One thing to note, 8gb of ram is likely not enough if youre going to be gaming or running VMware often like I am. So i added a stick of Crucial 2666 8gb ddr4 ram ($30) and i really couldnt be happier with the performance im getting now. The extra ram was recognized immediately, and without the need for me to do anything other than pop it in and turn it on. Windows 10 is a welcome improvement over the previous iterations, and the ssd in this bad boy allows it to boot up in a matter of seconds. Runs fairly quiet, and stays cool. Ships with a basic keyboard and mouse which do their job.

For those complaining about this PC....its a $550 computer!!! need to manage your expectations. And honestly, for this price it has far exceeded mine. Youd be hardpressed to build your own PC using these same components for any cheaper. The graphic card alone runs $200!

I ordered the pc with the i5-9400f and Gtx 1660 ti. It was smaller than I expected but works really well. I was able to add an additional stick of ram and mount another ssd without much issue. So far it has run all my VR games exceedingly well.

This review is for HP Pavilion Gaming PC Desktop Computer, Intel Core i5-9400F, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti, 8GB RAM and not for the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G system.

Good when I got it. Q2 2019. (690-0020)
An NVMe SSD and 16gb Ram upgrade made it real great.
PSU and motherboard is proprietary so upgrading those is not easy.
It’s an AMD processor, but the holes in the motherboard for the CPU cooler are Intel LGA115x, first for everything huh?
L05757-800 500w HP PSU is the best, but not perfect option out there I can find to upgrade from the 400w stock.
FYI, 690-0073w is the better option now if you can find one.

Wow! I challenge you to find a build with an i5 and a GTX 1660ti at this price anywhere else. What a deal! I applied any bios flash/firmware updates from HP for this model and installed all windows updates with no issues. I also swapped the ram for 16gb of corsair RAM ($69.99) and swapped the NVMe SSD for a Corsair 1Tb for ($129.99) and everything went smoothly. This was a gift for my son and we just finished Farcry 5 in coop at 4K with very respectable FPS. So, if you're looking for the best bang for your buck for a mid-level entry gaming PC which can handle high to ultra settings in most games on a budget, look no further. Thanks Amazon!
