@Prince196,

 

Welcome to our HP User Forum!

 

Your HP 280 G2 Microtower PC, according to page 5 of the manual: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06182575.pdf, has been fitted with a 180-watt power supply -please verify.

 

In order to power a GTX 1660 or a GTX 1660 Super, you must at least have a 300-watt power supply (see: https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/geforce-gtx-1660.c3365 and: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER Specs | TechPowerUp GPU Database).  Here is a User benchmark link of an HP 280 G2 MT fitted with a GTX 1660 Super: HP 280 G2 MT Performance Results - UserBenchmark.


HP made a 300-watt HP power supply for your desktop, with p/n: 759766-001. However, another option -that is, assuming your desktop has a 180-watt power supply, is to swap it out for any ATX power supply because your motherboard appears to be 24-pin ATX power enabled -please verify:

If you choose the latter (ATX power supply) option, you'll have to watch the ATX's dimensions (LxWxH) for fit inside your case.

 

[EDIT:] As long as you pair a graphics card with a sufficiently powerful PSU as recommended, you can fit any graphics card you want (as long as it will physically fit inside your case AND your power supply provides the PCIe (6/8-pin) PCIe power cable(s) as needed), such as an RTX 3060 as seen here: HP 280 G2 MT Performance Results - UserBenchmark, which is likely powered by a 500-watt power supply.

 

Hope this was helpful.

 

Kind Regards,
