I'm considering upgrading my GPU to an NVIDIA RTX3080, and yes I know they are extremely hard to find. I currently have a: -GTX 1660Ti - I believe there is room for the 3080
-i7 9700 w/16GB RAM
I'm not sure if the motherboard is compatible and I know the current 500W PSU needs to be upgraded to 750W. Are there any other considerations I need to consider? I have read the 3080 runs pretty hot. I'm not looking to purchase a new rig, just trying to utilize my units upgradeability.
Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will explain what you have to consider when upgrading your video card. The first thing to consider is the size of the card. It has to fit into the space provided with enough space for good airflow. This is extremely important with the newer cards; especially in smaller mid-size cases.
