I have been utilizing my Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming Laptop with a NVIDIA GTX1050 graphics card for about three years now. It was time for me to get improve my PC gaming power with this HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop Tower. This tower comes with the NVIDIA GTX 1650 graphics card, which is an improvement from my laptop. I connected my Samsung 40IN LCD TV (LN40C610N1F) via HDMI to utilized it as my monitor (not bad going from 15IN to 40IN!). I have attached a picture to show the different options you have to connect monitors, tv’s, etc on the back of the tower. To improve the sound that was coming from my tv, I utilized my Anker Soundcore Motion+ Speaker (A3116). The Motion+ Speaker was connected seamlessly through Bluetooth. I also enjoyed having the multiple USB Type-A & the USB Type-C in the front of the tower. This allowed me to leave a lightning cable attached to the front to charge my iPhone 11 while I’m on the computer. The HP Pavilion gaming desktop comes with a standard USB-A mouse and keyboard right out of the box. It comes with 8GB of memory, which can be swapped out for up to 32GB. There is also 2 internal 3.5” HDD expansion bays available for expansion. With the stock components this loaded Troy Total War so much faster than my Dell gaming laptop. I could definitely tell the difference between the two.
Overall, this is a great PC gaming tower. It provides you with what you need to be able to play PC games. The best part though is that it has room for expansion to improve on that even more if you want/need to. I’m also a sucker for the green LED lights, since I like to game in the dark. I would recommend this gaming tower.

A:AnswerI have read that when it comes to their power consumption, the GTX 1650 Super can pull up to around 130W, while for the GTX 1660 Super that’s around 150 W, so 20W more. Other than that you'd need to have the correct drivers. I'm not sure it is a practical upgrade for the improvements you would get, so it depends on your situation.
