Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

Two items to verify are:

 

1. The maximum graphics card length your chassis can accept

2. The minimum 1080 Ti power supply required

 

Retail 580 cards usually require a 500 watt power supply. But HP modifies some graphics cards to run on lower power requirements.

 

I don't know the specific HP 690 PC you have. But I am pretty sure HP only offers up to a 400 watt power supply in this chassis. This power supply and your motherboard have proprietary connections. A standard retail power supply will not work in your chassis or connect to your motherboard.

 

The 1080 Ti requires a 600 watt power supply.

 

The upgrade does not look promising at this time.

 

Regards

So is the power supply the ONLY thing I need to look out for? and like what parts can I keep and not keep.

Hi,

 

All other components such as RAM, CPU, storage devices are okay.

 

But the power supply is a problem. The HP 400 watt PSU does not have a standard 24 pin ATX motherboard (MB) connector.

 

And the Nvidia recommended minimum 1080 Ti power supply is 600 watts.

 

HP does not sell a 600 watt power supply that will work with your motherboard. I don't know of any retail power supplies that have the MB connections you need to power this HP MB.

 

Regards

Will I have to get a new motherboard too?

Hi Heburius89436,

 

Yes, because the HP MB has proprietary power connections.

 

The HP MB is also a custom form factor. A standard uATX retail MB may not fit in the 690 chassis.

 

You would have to replace the chassis and probably buy a new Windows 10 product key.

 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

 

Regards
