Adding a graphics card

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Desktop 590-p0057na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Recently I've been wanting to upgrade to a dedicated graphics card and not integrated so I chose the 1660 super graphics card ,the only thing I'm worried about is if I can actually fit it in / if its compatible with my pc. I already found a good power supply so now I just want to know if the graphics card is compatible with the pc. Product number : 6RU46EA#ABU

P Pavilion Desktop 590-p0xxx (why tell xxx)  I have no idea at all what CASE you have(for room and card height allowed)

6RU46EA#ABU ( what is this) sure Product ID # of what? the PC. OK is

HP PAVILION 590-P0057NA

here is what you did not tell, 57NA (not xxxx)

that PSU does not fit the 2 MOBO power jacks so that  is failure  (ask first buy 2nd?)

 

12 makers of cards,  and vast submodels of each card each make , and nobody can guess

post URL your card,. or its SKU. OMG you did, how rare and so nice to do that thanks. Gigabyte.

but is the wrong card, oops gigabytes calls  H, wrong it is depth, and W is now wide is HEIGHT and is high profile card

low is 64.5mm so not that.

 
L=225.65 W=122.02 H=40.5 mm

L- is next using a ruler in the PC,

 

here is how to do this.

called using  ruler. and RTM

HP does not spec the x16 slot space Length ever, , heck no OEM does, (but my DIY PCs)

so we use a ruler first, then write that down.

then at your unstated 1660 sellers page RTM read the manual see length there, all makers of all cards show that in there  spec an their manuals.

 

Is your PC case low profile or high?

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER OC 6G Graphics Card GeForce GTX 1660 Super

 

the best place is not to read ebay or amazon, the best way is at Gigabyte.com  is is there card , made by them

and real manuals that sellers never offer (PDF)

https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N166SOC-6GD#kf

you UK me USA

for use silly imperial measurements, it is 8.8": long that is very short and fits most PCs made real tower desktops.

 
L=225.65 W=122.02 H=40.5 mm

first google hit, and the the manual states.....

 

i  measure here. first. (53x seen) it has to fit and not hit things,  only a ruler works and nobody specs this, just you  , see?

Unplug AC cord, and use plastic ruler or wood never use metal rules, here. keep left hand grounded to steel.(RH persons)

answered 100s of times this, one more.

  • must fit  and not hit.
  • not overload PSU ,
  • PSU ATX DO not work here I BET. (wrong power jacks for mobo see?) HP alien PSU right>? hp  does not spec them.
  • And the bad spectre of UEFI in secure boot will not like this card, and cure is , reload OS, if present.
NO warranty answers by me.
