Will a 1660 Ti work well in a Z620?

HP Recommended
Z620
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently purchased a Z620 with a E5-2660 processor, 32GB of memory and a Nvidia Quadro 4000 video card.  While it works with hashcat for a simple password (15 minutes) the GPU is running flat out at about 88 degrees.  Doing a more difficult password might take 3 weeks.  My constrained budget idea is to buy a GTX 1660 Ti.  Other than a 6 to 8 pin adapter being needed will this work well in my system?

@oldserverguy,

Does it have UEFI       test it by going here.  The GTX 1660Ti requires UEFI.

HP initial news brief was March 2012, before UEFI.

It has UEFI.  The system only has 2 6 pin connectors - one which is docked and the other is attached to the Quadro 4000.

 

I really want to know if the card will work correctly as I've got an XW8400 where I can no longer install a fresh copy of WIn 10 due to driver problems (long story).

@oldserverguy,

With an adapter for the PCIe 6 to PCIe8, that 130W card should work.
