Hi,
So I bought an Acer Aspire TC-330 at christmas, and am now looking into getting a new GPU & CPU. I realised that i'm using an awful APU, and am wondering if I can remove the APU and put in the CPU (AMD RYZEN 3 3300X) & GPU (GEFORCE GTX 1660 SUPER). I know very little about PCs, but cant find a straight answer online,

Thanks

Your best bet is to sell that TC-300 as is for whatever you can and get something new.

It uses an FM2 socket, which you cannot use a Ryzen CPU in

It uses a proprietary case and PSU, aftermarket boards won't fit and the PSU is too small to run that GPU.

You need a motherboard, case, PSU, ram, and the GPU, so basically other than the hard drive/SSD a whole new system.

the board might use a socket ft4 so your on limit to upgrade aven cpu and gpu same for psu since they might use a proprietary psu with is own connector post all parts name and model in the case also made sure it does not need a low profile gpu in .

We usually use imgur, and then copy the .jpg ("Direct Link" option If I remember correctly) and paste it here using the "Insert Image" icon.

If you can, take and post some pics of the psu and the inside of the PC case too.
