Graphic card options to upgrade HP Omen 880-109?

HP Omen 880-109
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 I've searched but am having some difficulty determining which video cards my HP Omen 880-109 will accept.  My current configuration has Intel core I5-8400, 2.8 GHz, 8 GB DDR4, 1 TB HDD, and integrated HD Graphics 630.  I like to play games such as Fortnite, as well as games with high quality graphics, but they are not running well with the integrated grahics card. Looking for a list (and suggestions) as to which video cards I can upgrade to with this system.  Also, will adding additional memory help my case? If so, recommendations as to which type and configuration?  Appreciate your help 🙂

Hello @silversong

 

Upgrading all depends on what you want to play, the game settings (assuming a 1080p monitor at 60Hz) and your "budget".

If all you playing is LoL and similar, then all you need is a GTX 1050.

If you play higher end stuff like AAA games then a GTX 1060 would be in order.

 

More memory? If your system is needing the ram while gaming then yes it will help.

Tests from a lot a reviewer have shown a significant difference in using 16 over 8. If its available, your system will use it.

You want to match the timings of the existing stick of ram, when installing a second stick.

Use a utility like Speccy or CPUZ to see what you have currently.

 

Adding an SSD to run Windows from will make the system feel a lot faster also with fast boot times. The games wont play better, but installed to SSD they will load a lot faster. It has one M.2 NVMe slot.

 

Let me know if you have other questions.

Thank you for the response.  The first thing I did was install an SSD, so I'm good on that front.  I found a great price on a 1070 TI, just waiting for it to come in the mail. Hopefully I won't have to upgrade my PSU, but if so, it was still a great deal 🙂 I'll keep a lookout for additional memory, thanks!
