Upgrade GPU Question

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP Desktop PC 880-p0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi

I am currently looking to upgrade my GPU in my PC but before I start to buy a new GPU I would like to know if the graphic card that I am currently looking at buying would be able to fit on my motherboard and in the case. I am not the most tech savvy person but I do know some stuff. So currently I have done my research and from what I found is that it would be able to fit in my PC. But I am not willing to take the decision to buy the GPU before I know that it is 100% that it would be compatible.

 

The GPU in question  is msi radeon rx 5600 xt mech oc. If there is any more information that you need then just ask away. Thanks in advance for help.

Thank you for the additional information, @Dojan!

 

Here are the specifications for the card from MSI:  https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/RADEON-RX-5600-XT-MECH-OC/Specification

 

The card is 9.09" (231 mm) in length.  You should measure from the Back I/O ports to the front of the case to assure that it will fit with space for good airflow.  Airflow is very important with the new powerful cards.  Also, you should check to see if your power supply unit (PSU), which is close to minimum requirements, has a 1x8-pin PCIe power connector.  The MSI card requires this connector.  If you buy a different brand the specifications may be a bit different.

@Dojan , welcome to the forum.

 

What is the Product Number of the computer? I need this information to review the specifications of it. Please don't furnish the Serial # or other personal information. You can find the Product Number at the bottom of the page when you open HP Support Assistant.
