Upgrade Questions?

HP Recommended
HP Envy 750-624
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I need to replace the graphics card with an upgraded version. Do you know what options I have in this area? As I am understanding I will likely also need to upgrade my power supply. Can someone guide me in the right direction for what I am needing to do? Thanks a ton for reading and replying to my really elementary approach to this topic.

@CoachHoy,

The stock unit had no added GPU card, just the motherboard integrated,

Why?   Is it for an intense game, if so, name it?

Working backwards.  A Corsair CX 650 is the max PSU I would ever recommend. It is an exact fit.  The Zotac GTX 1080 mini is 8.3" long, and costs $859. Is this were you need to be ?  CPU might be OK, but the RAM is maxed out at 16 GB.

It is for Fortnite. 😬

The one included meets the minimums but it IS causing issues when I am playing.

I do NOT want to pay $859. I want something around $200-300 but that is highly rated for that price range.

@CoachHoy,

Shocked you. huh?  OK, for Fortnite

Some GTX 1050Ti 75W cards,  do not have need for a PCIe 6 pin can be used with any 300W PSU.

 

This GTX 1050Ti has the need for a PCIe 6 pin, that the 430W PSU has.  Card is 9" long.  Measure .

  430W (for the future based on price)

Hello
the required configuration is not huge

https://systemreqs.com/fr/jeu/fortnite

vidia GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 equivalent DX11 GPU, 2 GByte VRAM


The first reference given by @wb2001 , allows you to avoid buying a power supply module, this card should be largely sufficient
The one you indicated requires a more powerful power supply
you can avoid this

 

instead in the future you could replace the hard drive with an SSD if that's what you have:

@CoachHoy,

That link is to the GTX 1650 Super Gaming X, as shown here.    Not a 1060Ti.   (Your a tad nervous ?). That is understood.   It is a 100W card, and 9.7 inches.  Good on watts for the 430W PSU. 

Cut a piece of heavy cardboard 4.3" x 9.8" and see if it drops into place.
