Is there a way I can upgrade my graphics card into something better compared to what I have now?

Omen by HP: 870-251
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was wondering if there is anyway I can upgrade my graphics card into something better than the AMD Radeon RX 480?  I play Rainbow Six: Siege and it can only go to medium settings because of how much the graphics card can take.

So would the 1070 Ti or the 1080 Ti be too big for that? Or would i have to change my motherboard in order to do so?

Thank you for the additional information, @a_coff.

 

The best way to know if a video card will fit into the space provided is, measure the space from the Back I/O ports to the front of the case.  This will let you assess if it is enough space and if there are other components that will be in the way.  It is necessary to have enough space to allow for good airflow.  HEAT is your enemy.

 

If the GTX 1070 (Ti) or 1080 (Ti) will fit you have to make certain that your power supply unit (PSU) will have enough wattage and any supplemental power connectors that are necessary.  The GTX 1080 Ti requires a 6-pin and 8-pin supplemental connectors.

Hey @old_geekster

 

I have found a NVIDIA Founders Edition GeForce on sale and was hoping that may be a better fit with my money and how cheaper it will be. Where exactly do I find my PSU information?

 

Thanks for all the help!

I like Newegg for product specs.  They seem to have the most available.  Enter the exact model into Google and look for it on Newegg.com.  Then, go to the "Specifications" Tab on that page.  It will have the power requirements and if any supplemental power connectors are needed, toward the bottom of the page.  If you provide me with the model I will double check for you.
