Can I upgrade my HP OMEN 870-244 to an RTX 2070?

HP OMEN 870-244
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

MY PC SPECS: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05380412

 

Is it possible for me to upgrade to an RTX 2070 with my PC, minus the PSU. Is my case big enough to fit the card and/or provide adequate cooling, or do I need to transfer to a new case. 

 

Please and thank you.

Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

It is possible to upgrade to a 2070. 

 

The 2070 requires one six pin and one eight pin PCIe PSU connector. The typical 2070 also requires a 550 watt or greater PSU.

 

You would have to check the prospective 2070 card length. EVGA (Link) has a 2070 which is 10.6 inches in length. Other OEMs make 2070 cards in longer lengths. Some 2070 cards may extend beyond two slots.

 

You would have to do some measuring; the chassis, the PSU. and can your PC and motherboard (MB) accept a dual slot or greater graphics card.

 

It is not possible to answer your question on cooling. You may need an additional exhaust fan if the chassis supports this. You would also need to verify your MB has available fan headers.

 

Regards
