I have the HP envy h8-1590 ea with a gtx1550ti installed. I was wondering if my machine would accept the gtx1660 6gb card?

I cannot find a gtx-1550ti  did you mean gtx-1050ti ?

 

According to this spec your system has a 460 watt power supply.  I recommend you use the Techpowerup database to find graphic card that can be used in a 460 watt system

 

For example, the gtx-1660 has a recommended power supply requirement of 250 watts so it is within specs.  It may not fit depending on physical size or low or high profile, etc. depending on case size and what might be blocking the card.

 

If your bring up the above webpage and scroll the "Relative Performance" dialog box you can select a better (or worse) graphics card that still fits in the 460 watt recommended size.

 

The Gtx-1050 is %53 slower and the ti version of %80 of the capability of the 1660 as shown in "Relative Performance"

 

Going from 80 to 100 is not much of a jump 

The 1660ti is a better card but requires an 8 pin PCIe power adapter.  Does your 460 watt power supply have any PCIe 6 or 8 pin connectors?

@Newtohere,

 

Yes, your HP ENVY h8-1590ea Desktop PC (D7B21EA) can accept/power a GTX 1660 6GB graphics card.  According to: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03747430, your desktop is fitted with a 460 watt power supply, and the GTX 1660 6GB on an average system requires at least a 450 watt power supply according to: https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/msi-geforce-gtx-1660-gaming-x-review,7.html#:~:text=Here%20is%...., which you have.  You'll have to confirm that your existing PSU is providing the PCIe 6(8)-pin power cable(s) required for this GPU.

 

Please be advised that since your Pegatron IPMMB-FM (Formosa) motherboard is ATX 24-pin power-enabled, you could swap your existing power supply with any ATX power supply, just watch its dimensions (LxWxH) for fit.

 

Btw, the fastest processor for your rig would be the i7-3770K and you could fit up to 4 x 8GB of DDR3 PC3-12800, 1600 MHz, Non-ECC, Unbuffered, UDIMM, 240-pin RAM sticks.

 

Hope this was helpful.

hi

I advise you to check all the same some points

i  have an equivalent model, same motherboard, but it with 600w power supply

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-hpe-h9-1200-phoenix-desktop-pc-series/5258492/model...

 

original there is an amd 7950 with 2 * 6 pin connector
therefore available in the 600w power supply box
the box is also not very spacious
make sure to choose a card that is not too big with a good ventilation system, if you do not want to transform it into a pizza oven

@Prométhée,

 

You posted, quote: "So check if your original power supply has connectors and how many, because some of these graphics cards need additional connectors" -end quote.

 

Unnecessary repetition: how is your response any different than what I already mentioned in my previous post, quote:

 

". . . your desktop is fitted with a 460 watt power supply, and the GTX 1660 6GB on an average system requires at least a 450 watt power supply according to: https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/msi-geforce-gtx-1660-gaming-x-review,7.html#:~:text=Here%20is%...., which you have.  You'll have to confirm that your existing PSU is providing the PCIe 6(8)-pin power cable(s) required for this [GTX 1660 6GB] GPU." -emphasis added.

it wasn't really the same meaning wanted in my answer, and I hadn't paid attention to this line probably but whatever, corrected, it's better...
But in any case, one thing is certain, same case, same motherboard, it is absolutely necessary to pay attention to the model chosen, otherwise there is a risk of poor ventilation
I tried a gtx 1070 instead of the original one, and sometimes it gets a little hot!

it is indeed original with an i7 3700 processor, quite powerful
version k, probably not worth it, ratio, price extra performance..
