Will The Bios of my Omen 870-224 Support a New Nvidia RTX-2070 Super?

HP Recommended
Omen 870-224
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an Omen Desktop ...Omen 870-224.

I purchased a new Nvidia RTX-2070 Super card to use with the new MS Flight sim.

I installed the new card and all was working well. One day while using it I got some

video distortion then the screens went blank. Shortly there after the computer rebooted.

From that point on all I would get on Bootup was a dark screen.

I removed the Nvidia Drivers 452.06 using the Nvidia removal tool.

Upon Reboot it installed the Default Microsoft driver and I was able to get 1 screen working.

I then removed the RTX-2070 and re-installed the old Nvidia GTX 1060..it worked perfectly.

I reinstalled the 452.06 drivers and the GTX continued to work as it should.

I then had Nvidia look at my data. They are asking if the UEFI Bios (F.26) will support a 20 series card?

Does anyone know? I really would like to get this card going. I miss my flying time.

@jrkson,

Your system is way under powered to support MSFS2020.  Your margins are in RED,

1) The CPU is below specs

2) Motherboard RAM is wholly insufficient at 8GB

3) Existing GTX 1060  3GB at (120W) was adequate for the 500W PSU.  The stress of the RTX2060 (175W) is just too great. There is no reserve power.  A 650W would be correct, IMHO to allow less than 85% power draw.

 

MSFS 2020 requirements are as follows.

Just to get it running:

Ryzen 5 1500X / Intel i5-8400, and 16GB motherboard RAM,  GTX 1060 4 GB Video RAM

If you want the better requirements:

Ryzen 7 Pro 2700X / Intel i7-9800X and 32GB motherboard RAM,  8GB Video RAM  RTX 2080  (215W).

RTX 2060 Super vs RTX 2080    RTX 2080 is $950 (10.8" card)  and a new CorsairCX650 runs $86

 

So to play a $120 program you will spend a lot of money.
