    Hi anyone who may be able to provide an answer. I currently have an HP Pavilion Desktop PC. There is no Tower, all of the power and processors are within the monitor itself. Thus being said, the graphics and ability for it to run games is not the best quality and was wondering if it was possible to buy a tower connect the two to each other and make the overall performance better. The PC itself runs very very well from a technical and internet based standpoint, just desire it to run and process game FPS at a higher level. Thanks!

    You will not be able to connect 2 towers together as each individual piece of hardware needs to be inserted into the motherboard. You will have to get parts that supports the motherboard in the 'HP Pavilion Desktop PC'. To convert a standard PC into a Gaming PC, you will need to buy seperate hardware such as a decent Graphics Card (Nvidia 1060+ or AMD Rx+) and you may need cooling accessories and a new CPU (Intel i5+ or AMD Ryzen+). The addition of a SSD will benefit by a massive increase in performance and your computer will start faster, but this is not necessary. Do you mind posting the technical details of your computer so I can give you a better reply?
