I have an hp omen obelisk 875 0014 desktop. I have a 256 gb ssd as my promary drive, and want to upgrade to the 970 evo or pro..Using it for music production currently, i read hp site, it says the motherboard has expansion m.2 slot, am I missing something or overlooking it?

Welcome to the HP Support Community @Ambitious_Gent
The M.2 slot should be next to the system memory???

Your PC already came with a 256GB PCIe NVMe drive, so you will need to remove it and replace with the Samsung 970 evo or pro. There are no capacity limitations (maybe only the prize) and those SSDs are considered the best.
In these HP videos you can see how to replace the drive (click on solid state drive in list on left)
Hope it helps,
Please click on thumbs up for thanks

As per your specs you have a "256 GB PCIe NVMe TLC M.2 Solid State Drive" already installed.
These Videos should help with any Upgrade and or repair:

Wow the link and videos are completely different.
The old one you posted "That I found" disappeared for 4-6 weeks and just last month came back.
It will disappear permanently like the one before that "That I found" and the links will be no good:
The new link will be there as long as HP is.
