Nope.

 

Unfortunately, it will not boot if installed in your PC.  You will have a black screen.

 

The reason is that all of the NVIDIA GTX 1000 series cards have only support for UEFI BIOS motherboards. Your BIOS is a legacy type.

 

Take a look at the AMD\ATI Radeon Video cards that have legacy BIOS support if you want to upgrade successfully.

 

Sapphire technology manufactures powerful AMD\ATI Radeon Video cards that have legacy and UEFI BIOS support.  See the following link at NewEGG.com

https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&IsNodeId=1&N=100007709%2050001561

The Radeon r9 300 series cards have legacy\UEFI BIOS support. The Radeon RX Gaming series cards have only UEFI BIOS support.

Hello

 

Please excuse my asking one question. Very sorry, only try to help. :Crying:

 

Is your pC model envy 700-481no? I cannot find envy 700-481 model.

 

Envy 700-481no made by HP  starting in November 2014.

 

The Envy 700-481no has UEFI BIOS. This model (700-481no) also has 500 watt power supply.

 

Big problem is will card you like to buy fit in tower if you have Envy 700-481no. This card is 10.98 inches (279 mm) long. It also need a six and eight pin PCIe connection from power supply.

 

Again, very sorry to jump in thread.

 

I apologize.

 

Grzy

Look for the BIOS updates under Windows 8.1 for your PC if you have the HP ENVY Desktop - 700-481no.

You should read the how to select a video card sticky authored by @Big_Dave to understand how to measure for the upgrade video card. The link is below.

Hello everyone

 

Thank you very much for your help. I was not seeking help but trying to see if Envy 700-481 was correct model given by Kakkaa.

 

I could not find this model. An HP search only gave Envy 700-481no. Also checked 700-400 series HP Support and could find only Envy 700-481no.

 

My point was if Kakkaa has Envy 700-481no then it has UEFI BIOS unless HP Support site detals are not right (or I am doing something wrong when searching).

 

Grzy

Hello

 

You can if the 1070 will fit in your tower. Pretty sure the 1070 needs 400 or 500 watt power supply.

 

I have a similar tower. Long graphics cards may hit the HDD cage in this HP chassis. I could not use a graphics card longer than ten inches (254 Mmm).

 

Grzy.
