Upgrading GPU

HP Envy 700-209
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I've been considering upgrading my GPU for quite some time. The Nvidia GTX 645 is decent for what I need, but I would like to upgrade to something considerably better, and was looking at other Nvidia cards, and was quite taken with the 980 ti (my choice in upgrading is not up for debate for the record).

But, before I go ahead and purchase the hardware, I have 1 burning question: Is my motherboard compatable with the GTX 980 ti?

 

I've been trying to do as much research on the topic as possible, but alas I've had to ask for assistance (it's also very hard to with having to do life stuff). The motherboard for my PC is the Memphis-B (full board specifications can be found by googling: hewlett packard 700-209 motherboard [first link]).

Upgrading GPU

Jeremy, welcome to the forum.

 

I have two concerns with the card 1) it is 10.5" in length and 2) it requires a minimum of 600W to operate properly and needs a 6-pin and 8-pin power connector.  Your PSU is only 460W.  You can measure from the back of the computer the length of the card to see if it will fit.

Thank you for the information. Is there a different Nvidia card you would recommend that would fit, like possibly something in the 700, or even 800 series?

If you want to get something powerful I am sure a 970 would be a huge upgrade over your 645, I'd recommend the small Zotac 970 if you have the money to spend on a new power supply.
