Do you mind if I pick on you?  Well, I will try to be polite !

You did not mention the exact model number.  Why so coy? 

The HP 690 series might have different motherboards, usually the LINCS or Sunflower is the common. That presents a problem for the LINCS based on the fact that "Dual Slot" cards like the RTX 2060 are long, and wide.  These 2 dimensions are problematic !!!   The Sunflower has room, but the issue is the PSU. Both are unique motherboard power headers requiring non-standard PSU.  The RTX will require160W of additional power. Where are you going to find that power?
