So, I have recently got a new computer, which is the HP Omen 870-2XX. I have got an i5-7400 CPU, a GTX 1070 GPU, and 8 GB of ram. The motherboard I think is an Odense2-K. Is the computer big enough to upgrade to a GTX 1080 ti in the future? And does the motherboard support that? I have found out that the motherboard does support i7-7700 CPU, and 16 GB of ram, which is what I am going to upgrade the CPU and RAM to.
Can anyone help me with the 1080 ti? As I don't really know much about motherboards and the ports that are needed for stuff.

You can swap the 1070 for a 1080ti, but every mfg and card is different. You will need to get the dimensions of the card itself, then measure the space inside the case to see if it will fit.
You didnt say which model you have specifically so I dont know what power supply you have, but you can get the requirements for that from the mfg of the card also.
Most likely, you will also need at least a 600w PSU and the connectors needed for the card.
I don't know your reasons for wanting to upgrade from a 1070 to 1080ti, but unless you are trying to drive a 4K or 144 Hz monitor on AAA games at high settings, I would just hang on to my money.
Let me know if you have other questions.

The computer is the:
OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 870-270no.
I'm not going to upgrade the card for at least 1-3 years. I'm just curious, to see if I'm actually able to put in a 1080 ti - You mentioned something called an "mfg" what is that? When I measure the space in the pc, is it then just height, width and depth?
Thank you for your answer!
