Hello @Stormsxshadow20 

 

The best way to tell if a particular new card will fit, is to simply take a tape measure and measure the existing card and the rest of the available space and compare that number to the length of the new cards specs.

Other thing to look at is the power supply. See what the new card requires for a power supply and if your 500w isn't enough wattage, you will have to buy a new one. Make sure the new PSU will have the correct power connectors for the new card also. Pretty much all new higher wattage PSUs will, just double check when shopping.

 

Let me know if you have other questions.

@Stormsxshadow20, according to the Product Specifications the computer came with a GTX 1070-8 GB of memory.  You should review the section titled "Video Graphics".

My card is an hp Nvidia gtx 1060. Which is perfectly fine for my 75 hz fhd monitor at high settings, however I see 144hz at similarly high settings recommend at least a 1070. My 500 watt PSU is capable of handling a 1070 possibly even more I was just looking to see if anyone had the max gfx card dimensions for the PC.

Thank you for the additional information, @Stormsxshadow20!

 

This isn't the first time that I have found a difference in the specifications.  HP uses the same motherboards in many different models with many different components.
