Solved!

Will my motherboard support Nvidia 2060 Super and/or Radeon 5700 XT?

HP Recommended
HP ENVY Phoenix Desktop 850-150qe
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am looking to upgrade (among other things) my GPU in my desktop. The motherboard in this model is the Kaili2 with the SSID being: 2B36. I cannot seem to find anything on if either of these graphics cards are compatible with my motherboard. Any help would be appreciated.

@knagy17 , welcome to the forum.

 

HP doesn't provide component compatibility lists because, frankly, the components are changing too fast for them to keep up with the pace.  The PCIe slot on the motherboard is PCI Express 3.0 x16.  I believe this will be compatible with either card.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will help you know what to consider when upgrading your video card: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7481981

 

Your motherboard has UEFI: https://www.howtogeek.com/56958/HTG-EXPLAINS-HOW-UEFI-WILL-REPLACE-THE-BIOS/

 

So, this won't be a problem for you.

 

The two things that you need to consider are 1) the length of the card and 2) the wattage required to operate it properly.  The RX 5700 XT requires a PSU with 600W and 1x6-pin/8-pin PCIe power adapter.  The RTX 2060 Super requires a PSU with 550W and 1x8-pin PCIe power adapter.  It is normally recommended that you buy a PSU with 100W to 150W more that the card manufacturer recommends for peak power needs and future upgrades.  Each manufacturer has their own specifications for their cards.  The length of the cards can vary considerably.  I like to use Newegg.com for the specifications for all components.  They seem to provide more good information.

 

Here is a PSU calculator that you can use to choose the wattage that you need: https://www.newegg.com/tools/power-supply-calculator/?nm_mc=AFC-RAN-COM&cm_mmc=AFC-RAN-COM&utm_mediu...

 

Once you read the article that I provided, you will be able to make an educated choice.  If you have further questions about any of the cards, as stated in the article, a good source is the manufacturer's Tech Support.

first off no PSU watts told and if the 6 and 8 pin PCIe GPU aux cables are present in the PC now,

that be first, power is after fits  and not hits things inside rule time and read GPU spec,  there are 12 makers of card and 1 and 2 and 3 fan cards, some do not fit for sure 3fan, I use a ruler, over the x16 slot , never seen any oEM ever spec this  out

thus the endless posts on all forums this topic, surely endless.  your PSU is listed at 500watts, so my run any card.

  • Fits and not hits, (fan counts etc) use a ruler.
  • PSU handles new card GPU wattage. 500watt will.
  • PSU has 2 GPU aux power cables 6 and 8 or like ATX real uses  6/8 , twin pairs  of cables that fit every GPU on earth.
  • Secure boot disabled. if not some OEM PC will not like your new GPU card,   
  • Bios upgrade the PC. for sure if secure boot problems above.
  • not cause PC to over heat,  case fans help, if there, are they?

2060 is 175watt card

Radeon 5700 XT  = 225watts.

so only the cables missing is a problem,  just one problem cables,  are they missing, I caN SEE ALL CABLES IN ANY HP PC, due to lack of documentation, nor photos of your PSU,  Psu replacement is not covered in HP docs. making this harder.

no service manual on support page.

NO warranty answers by me.
