810 Envy graphics board question

I am preparing to order a customized HP ENVY Phoenix 810st Desktop series from Costco since I like the security of 90 day return policy and it includes home service. In ordering graphics board it lists a 1.5GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 760. Never heard of a 1.5GB, a 2GB yes. Is this right? What do you think of this option for Photoshop work? Also anybody have specs on the 256GB ssd drive that is used? i am thinking of that with a hd. Many thanks.

Steve

Hi Steve,

 

The HP 800ST offered by COSTCO is an excellent PC.

 

OEM products are supplies to HP from many different manufacturers.

 

HP uses OEM video cards that often times have different specifications compared to the retail products.

 

There are many variations of Photoshop but I don't see why the NVIDIA 760 would not work.  You'll  have 90 days to find out.

 

I don't see any specifications posted for the SSD but I suspect that it is a SATA 3 SSD.

Thanks Dave,

What is the difference between the 810se and 810st? When I configure them identically the st is more, but I can see no spec differences on identical memory, ssd, hd, ps, graphics, etc.

Hi,

 

Someone out here long ago mentioned what the last designations stood for and if I remember correctly it's the supply source in some cases. (i.e wb=Walmart)

Re: 810 Envy graphics board question

Good idea. But in this case Costco offers both.

Oh well. Thanks for replying.
