Solved!

Upgrade to a RTX 2060, do I need to change PSU and is it possible?

HP Recommended
Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0039nl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello.

I have a question. My Pavilion desktop has GTX 1650 4 GB and i want to get a RTX 2060 (i don't know, a SUPER or a stock).

I read in the PC hardware description that there is installed a 310 W PSU, that is not enough for the RTX 2060 GPU.

So, I want to ask, on my PC, can I change PSU and GPU or the PSU is not upgradable?

Thanks to anyone for a kind reply 🙂

Yes. The PSU can be upgraded.

 

You will have to use an HP PSU because of the proprietary header on the motherboard.

 

Take a look at the spreadsheet at the link to see which one will work for your desktop PC. Your PC has the Lincs motherboard

Thank you for your reply!

 

I found only one seller in Germany (I don't trust these sellers too much) that sells the HP 500w PSU.

 

My motherboard (lincs), has 6 pin, while a normal psu (ex. Corsair) has 24 pin.

I found on Ebay this adapter: 30cm ATX principale 24Pin a 6Pin Adattatore Di Alimentazione PSU Cavo 18AWG Fit for HP Z220/Z230 | e... can it help me using a normal amazon PSU and having much choice and guaranteed product form Amazon?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

I can't say that I recommend using that.

 

It is completely up to you and the risk is all yours if it does not work.
