So I went and bought a HP Pavilion Gaming R5 1650 Super, 8GB/256GB Gaming Desktop Tower after owning a 1TB PS4 for years, but the storage and RAM seem to not be enough for what I want out of a Gaming PC. What is preferred I replace them with and how do I know they're 100% compatible for this PC.

Note: All I know is to stick with DDR4 RAM


Thank you all in advance!

RAM can be iffy when you mix and match, but if you're just wanting to add another 8GB, then this should be fine;

or if you just want a new 16GB kit for any reason;

As for storage, depends on your budget really. If it were me, I'd add another SSD of larger capacity and probably an HDD alongside the 2 x SSD's. Either way though, it's most likely going to be worth grabbing an HDD.
2TB Seagate Barracuda
1TB HDD is only like $10 less, so it really doesn't make sense to get less than a 2TB HDD IMO.
