@ActorMike , welcome to the Community.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will tell you how to measure the space for the video card: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7481981

 

There is no maximum size for the card as designated by HP.  The main thing with the new 3000 series cards is space for good airflow.  They will develop a lot of heat.  This will cause damage to the card and the other components.  You can no doubt get a longer card in the space than is safe, but if you do, you should monitor the temperatures of the card and system carefully.

No Maximum size? Looks to me like there is from my photo above.

 

To save people time, your link says to measure "from the Back I/O ports to the front of the case".  How does that determine the maximum size? That tells you what size your existing cards is, which we already know. 

 

Seems like with the photo I provided above, someone could give a more specific answer.

HP will not publish any limits on upgrading the video card because that is not their business.  Selling computers is their business. 

 

I don't know how I could be more specific than what I posted.  The limit is the distance from the back of the case to the front of the case with space for good airflow!!  You can fit any card in the space that you feel is safe.

hi

obviously you cannot exceed a certain limit
Just look at the size of your graphic card , and if possible use a map of the closest size, you should have a small margin
Either way, check before the power supply and pci connector requirements required, ex:

550 w 

depending on the manufacturer

you can look for examples

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-880-100-desktop-pc-series/18695893/product-info
we find for other models with your motherboard this

Dimensions: 12 Layer / (4.4 in x 10.5 in)

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (8 GB)

11.2 cm x 17.3 cm (4.4 x 10.4 in)

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (11 GB)

 

  • Form Factor: Full height PCB with ATX dual slot bracket
  • Dimensions: 26.7 cm (10.5 in) FH

Welcome to the internet where you get many answers that don't actually answer the question. Lol 

 

If anyone knows the maximum GPU SIZE,  especially length, please let me know. Once I upgrade the card I will also post my findings. If you don't know,  don't answer. I already posted what size is in there which is irrelevant. You can clearly see from the photo a larger card will fit.

sorry if you don't understand, but we answered you
I gave you examples

now try as advised @old_geekster  not to take a card too big either, it will not be cooled efficiently because there may be space

Since nobody actually knew the answer, I removed the support brace, which I suspect is largely for show, and there is quite a bit of room left for a longer card, assuming the cords underneath do not serve as a problem. Since the PCI slot is taller, I suspect they won't. If anyone has any actual first hand specific knowledge, feel free to respond.  There is a good 12" space there.

 

Also regarding cooling, newer cards are often more efficient and you can always remove the side of the case which is a good practice anyway. You can also control the max temperature with afterburner. A newer card does not inherently mean a hotter card.

@ActorMike

 

Before you criticize those of us who volunteer hours of our time to help others in the Community, you need to know the circumstances!

 

Unfortunately, most of the members that come here for help don't have the expertise that you and I do!  When we give advice it is based on the least knowledgeable who read it.  We don't always know how technical the members are who are reading it.  If we give incorrect information HP gets a bad reputation.  The warnings that we offer are not necessarily based on the latest, greatest, components.  Not every member can afford them.  Also, we don't recommend third-party apps, such as, Afterburner and Intel XTU to the members.  In the wrong hands they can cause a lot of damage.  I have been using and building computer for 30+ years.  I had a HP motherboard fried by XTU without doing anything extreme.

 

Thank you for the pictures of your computer.  I am certain they will help others.  This is why we are here.

@old_geekster- nothing helpful was posted here except by me. I asked a real simple question and it seems like people just respond to get their post count up,  I own and operate one of the word's largest automotive forums, and I would have deleted most of the replies here because they absolutely don't answer a simple question and instead give vague information, some of which was already in the OP. I even said not to reply unless you knew the size and someone replied anyway saying I didn't understand.

 

I think a few people need to stop answering questions they don't know the answer to.
