I currently have a GTX 1660 S and I wanted to upgrade to an RTX 2070 S. Is my motherboard able to handle it? I already know my current case would be too small to handle it. What case would I need to be able to fit it?

Welcome to our HP User Forum!
Your HP ENVY Desktop - TE01-1020 (9EF30AA) according to: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-envy-desktop-pc-te01-1000i/32480777/model/35904116/document/..., is fitted with a Baker motherboard (SSID: 8767) and a 400-watt power supply.
Your current graphics card -likely an HP Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 TI 6GB (HP p/n: L34258-001), requires a minimum recommended 400-watt power supply.
However, an HP GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB (HP p/n: L73337-001) requires a minimum recommended 500-watt power supply.
Now, according to: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Power-Supply-Cross-Reference-for-specific-model..., your desktop is compatible with a 500-watt power supply (HP p/n: L05757-800).
You will need it, because an HP GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB requires one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCIe power connection cables, which the aforementioned 500-watt power supply is equipped with.
Here is a link for an HP GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB offered for a very competitive price ($217.46) via Walmart, of all places: https://www.walmart.com/ip/HP-GeForce-RTX-2070-Super-8GB-GDDR6-Graphics-Card-L73337-001/1131800163.
Hope this was helpful.

Be advised that the L05757-800 power supplies are pricey: HP L05757-800 - Google Search. Lest I forget to mention: if you happen to pick a non-HP RTX 2070 Super graphics card, these cards require more power which a 500-watt HP power supply is unable to provide.

Please take a look at this HP Envy Desktop TE01 upgrade, specifically starting at timestamp 10:15 with regard to the 500-watt power supply I recommended: (278) How to Upgrade a HP Envy Desktop TE01 Into a Real Gaming Machine | Before after Benchmarks - Y....
Also, I wondered if the HP RTX 2070 Super would physically fit inside your desktop. Also, given the 500-watt we have to work with, personally -as in: on second thought, I would feel more comfortable getting an RTX 2060 Super, specifically the "mini" version: the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 Super Mini 8GB GDDR6.
This would still be a major graphics performance upgrade compared to your GTX 1660 Super: https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-RTX-2060S-Super-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1660S-Super/4049vs4056.
These particular Zotac cards are still a little pricey, but you can get one for under $260 (used) via Newegg, or starting at $213 (used) via eBay: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=ZOTAC+GAMING+GeForce+RTX+2060+SUPER+MINI+8GB+GDDR6&_s....
