I am planning to buy this pc and will be my first gaming pc. I am also planning to buy Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 to replace the GTX 960 of the pc. My main concern is I don't really know if its going to fit in the GPU card slot, if its gonna fit in the case with no problems and if I need to change the 500W power supply of the pc. Also all I have to do is shut down pc, remove 960 and just slot in 1060 or do I have to something else? I will really appreaciate all answers and thank you in advance.

There are many HP Omen 870-xxx around, please buy a proper one for your requirment because upgrading may
(a) ending up more expensive than pre-built,
(b) more headache.

I'd edited/deleted my original comment after having received my refurbished 870-119 yesterday. There is plenty of space for a 970 GTX and the 500 watt power supply should be plenty - the 870-119 uses the lower-powered i7 CPU so power should not be an issue. I have a 'spare' GTX 970 lying around and will switch out the GTX 960 this evening. If I have any isses I will re-post.
Best of luck.
