Hey. Just wondering if anyone has tried the hp omen 870-224 with a rtx 2060 super card in it. Aside from a psu did you need anything else? Any fabrication to case? Any info would be great.

@Ddelgado109 , welcome to the forum.
Here is a HP Knowledge Base article about upgrading your video card: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7447100
It will help you decide if the card will fit into your case leaving space for good airflow. Good airflow is extremely necessary with these newer high-power cards. Here are the Specifications of the card from nVidia: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/graphics-cards/rtx-2060-super/?ncid=afm-chs-44270&ranMID=44270&...
You can check different manufacturers to see if they have a card that is shorter. Your motherboard is 9.4" x 9.4": https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-870-200/13687063/document/c05355651
This information is in the section titled "Form Factor". Also, you should buy a power supply unit (PSU) that is 100W to 150W more than required by the card, as stated in the article. I like Corsair products. A fully modular PSU would be good in your smaller case. It will allow you to use only the cables that are absolutely necessary.
I don't recommend trying to modify your case to make the card fit. This will change the airflow in the case and may cause damage to other components.
