Re: Gaming PC upgrade

OK thanks. You have an OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 880-068.

 

To upgrade to the GTX 1070, you will need to replace the full sized ATX power supply to at least 500w minimum.

Check the requirements for the card your are going to purchase. It will most likely require an 8 pin connector (or 6+2 pin will also work).

 

Let me know if you have other questions.

Re: Gaming PC upgrade

Lets start with one question at a time...

"Is there a better card i could go with that doesnt require such an upgrade at this time."

 

What is your goal with this upgrade specifically?

Ergo, what games are you playing and on what kind of monitor specs?
