Looking for a compatible graphics card

HP Recommended
DESKTOP-B0SSH07P
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The title pretty much says it all, looking to upgrade my Omen's graphics card but having trouble determining what will be compatible with its motherboard. I dont care if its NVIDIA or AMD, just want a better one altogether.

I am currently running this computer with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1030 GPU as that is what the computer came with.

Here is all the system information.

System Name: DESKTOP-B0SSH07P
System Manufacturer: HP

System Model: OMEN by HP 880-p0xx

System Type: x64-based pc

System SKU: 2HJ79AA#ABA

 

Hopefully thats all you will need ^^' If not i can provide more information for you.

Thanks for the help!

@JordyWild , welcome to the forum.

 

The specifications for your motherboard don't list the Generation of the PCIe x16 slot.  All of the video cards are backward compatible.  So, most cards should work.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will tell you what you need to consider when upgrading the video card:

 

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7447100

 

Your motherboard has UEFI.  Your power supply unit (PSU) is only 300W.  It may have to be upgraded, also.  I like Corsair PSU's and MSI video cards.

 

I like to look at the components I buy on Newegg.  They always give the most information on the specifications of their products.

@JordyWild,

Question for you:

1) 2HJ79AA translate makes reference to the HP 880-068

2) no where is the prefix "p" listed.

3) Why did you not list it as HP 880-068 ?

The unit is 2018, the Pro M2 chipset is PCIEx16 Gen 3.

So, in short I just need to measure the length of my current card and check how many pins it has and go from there? Just asking to confirm ^^

@JordyWild,

 

Q:  So, in short I just need to measure the length of my current card and check how many pins it has and go from there? Just asking to confirm ^^

 

A: As it states in the article that I provided, it is best to measure the space where the card will be installed.  You have to know that there will be enough space to allow for good airflow.  The wattage of the PSU is also very important.  You PSU is only 300W.  This limits the card that you can buy.  High-end cards require from 400W to 500W.  You need to check the specifications of the cards to assure which supplemental connectors they require.  I suggest that you find a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your system.
