Lenovo H50-50: graphics and memory upgrade

I note that my computer is already under warranty (bought 2015, the warranty expired in 2017).
I am mainly a gamer, I have a product H50-50 Desktop (Lenovo) - Type 90B6.
The i5 processor in the configuration has a good reputation and relatively good parameters for today's reality.
I have 8GB of RAM memory - can I add additional RAM memory? If so, which one? does it have to be DDR3 as already installed memory? Can I buy DDR4 for the motherboard - if so, can I use DDR3 and DDR4 at the same time? Can I disconnect DDR3 and give DDR4 2 times?
I have a MSI Geforce GTX 745 2G / A / DB / H VGA card - can I exchange it for a better one? At least I'm interested in GeForce GTX 1060 Ti  6Gb or better - can I install it myself?
Somewhere I read that Lenovo computers have locked motherboards in terms of installing other components.
I'm kindly asking for advice in this matter

Search engine is in the upper right corner:


H50-50 i3-4170 Maximum Memory and Strategies    Kingston memory is another good option:

Re: Lenovo H50-50 upgrade

Hi GieKa,




Product specifications shows:

16GB max, PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3, two 240-pin DIMM sockets 


It has to be DDR3 since the slot is different for a DDR4 and basically would not fit. Two 8GB DDR3 12800 will maximize it.


For the upgrade on the graphics card, you can review this post as it also gave links to some upgrades done by fellow members that would surely answer your GPU upgrade options.


Here is the hardware manual for you so you can check how you can do it yourself as I am confident you would be able to do so.


I hope this helps answer your query.
