Upgrading RAM, GFX and possibly SSD for Hp Omen 870-090

HP Recommended
HP Omen 870-090
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi. I purchased this machine last year with all the default specs. I’d like to do architectural visualization services and gaming, therefore I’d like to upgrade:

 

16GB of RAM to 32GB

Nvidia GTX 1080 to maybe a 1080ti 

and up the SSD. 

 

Thing is I’m not a PC literate type of person. 

 

Any advice?

Hello @lpz87

 

The ram can be upgraded to a max of 64GB if you wish, so yes you can increase it to 32.

You should add matching memory though, to insure stability. Use a tool like Speccy to see what the timings are of the existing ram. Should be DDR4-2133.

 

You can upgrad to a 1080ti or a 2080ti. But do make sure whatever  you go with, you find out the power requirements of it.

You will most likely have to change the power supply also. And take a tape measure and make sure you arent installing a card thats larger than what you have already. Make sure there is room to fit it.

 

You can upgrade the SSD also. You can replace the current sata SSD and/or you can add an NVMe M.2 SSD to the mobo.

Here are the specs.. .https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-by-hp-870-000-desktop-pc-series/11084748/model/13378664/do...
