Hey there! I'm curious if the AMD Ryzen 5 1600x 6 core Processor can work and fit with my computer. I'm looking for a upgrade, and I'm pretty interested in this card.


My computer specs are as of the follows;  Hard Drive Capacity = 2 TB

                                                                            Processor = AMD A10-Series 3.60 GHZ

                                                                            Graphics = Integrated AMD Graphics

                                                                            RAM = 12 GB

                                                                            Power Supply = 300W

                                                                            OS = Windows 10


My motherboard can be found here = HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - motherboard specifications, Orchid3 | HP® Customer Support


If it cannot work/fit/etc, what processors would work and be considered a upgrade?


Thank you if you help me out! I'm definitely not a computer expert!
