Upgrade Video card - Motherboard MSI MS-7826

ENVY 800-030qe
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have the HP Envy 800-030 that came with the Nvidia GTX 660 Geforce card. I want to upgrade it to the GTX 1660 Ti.

 

The GTX 660 is a 6 pin card and the GTX 1660 Ti is an 8 pin card. Will the GTX 1660 Ti work with my motherboard?

Hello @XheVoice 

 

There are several different versions of that model. I assume you meant the 800-030qe CTO?

If that 600w PSU has the  6+2 pin connector, then its the same as 8 pin and will work for your 1660TI upgrade.

All you need to do is measure the available distance or Length available in that tower and compare it to the length of that new card to make sure it will fit.

 

Then you should be good to go.
