What is a "Hewlett-packard 1998"?

 

I have discovered, by way of internet search that "Hewlett-packard 1998" is actually the code name of a motherboard for an HP EliteDesk 800 G1 small form factor. ( this is your PC)

 

In that small form factor (46.03 x 16.43 x 2.44 cm (18.12 x 6.47 x 0.96 in)  PC enclosure , a Radeon xfx rx 580 8gb, will not physically fit.

8GB video cards are relatively large cards. Your PC only accepts half size cards that are not very high and that are low power because of the PSU limitations  (320W)of the SFF PC.

I upgraded to bigger case and Coolermaster elite v3 80+ 600w PSU. I don't know is my motherboard compatible whit that GPU becouse i've read that it's limited to a 75w power consumption GPU's and RX 580 has 140w power consumption. I don't know is that true or not. That is why im asking.

With the PSU upgrade you just described and powering the video card with the PCIe 6/8-pin power cable, it should not be an issue.

 

The previous power limitation is because of the OEM PSU.
