New psu for HP Omen 880-025na

HP Omen 880-025na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I got myself a HP Omen 880-025na and the specs are 

 

Windows 10

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Processor

RAM: 16 GB

Storage: 2 TB HDD & 512 GB SSD

Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 580

500w

 

I would like to buy Nvidia 1080 ti but they say you need a PSU of at least 600w to use it and mine is 500w. Whats the best PSU to get and what size would i need. I will be using it for high graphic gaming. I've been looking at PSU but not sure on the watts needed. would a 650w or 750w be good? I've never upgraded before that's why i got this pc as it's upgradable.

@Richardav, welcome to the forum.

 

Just take your time when upgrading and you will do fine!  I enjoy the feeling when I boot my computer after making changes and seeing how much better it runs.

 

I suggest at least 750W if you are going to play AAA games.  They are very graphics intensive.  I like Corsair products.  If you have questions about any of their products, you can contact their Tech Support for help.  They have always been very helpful when I have contacted them.

 

Note:  Taking pictures of where the PSU cables connect to the motherboard and components will save you problems when installing the new PSU.  I learned this long ago.  There are numerous videos online to help you with the removal and installation.

The computer takes a standard ATX PSU.  It should have the necessary supplemental power connectors if required by the video card.  The PSU in my link to Newegg has all that you need and it is modular which means that you only have to use the cables that are necessary.

 

Note:  Measure the existing PSU and compare the measurements to the one that you choose.  This will assure that it will fit.

Does this OMEN not have a proprietary PSU?

I have the 880-160se and it does not appear to use a propretary PSU, rather a full ATX PSU.

Upgrading should be no problem that I can see.
