HP Omen Desktop 880-120 - Upgrades (SLI, PSU)

HP Omen Desktop 880-120

Hello!

 

I'm interested in the new HP Omen Gaming PC 880-120.

 

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/hp-omen-by-hp-desktop-intel-core-i7-16gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1080...

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05814074

 

It's unclear to me whether the motherboard supports SLI configuration (if I wanted to add a second GTX 1080 for instance). The chat agent could not help unfortunately.

 

Also, how upgradable are PSUs on Omen Desktop PCs?

 

Thank you!

@SkyLego, welcome to the forum.

 

While the motherboard has two PCI 3.0 x16 slots, I don't believe that it is SLI compatible.  I don't see anything about it in the User Guide here.  This would be a major option and I believe that it would be mentioned.

@old_geekster

 

Thank you for your reply. That's what I was concerned about that and I tend to agree with you. SLI should be mentioned in the motherboard documentation if it was supported.

A little off topic but have you looked at the Omen 870-213W? It is a little cheaper and specs out pretty close. Could save you a little money so you could in turn drop an upgrade in it? Just a thought.
