@Jasen734,

In order to properly comment,  you are asked the model number of the HP, and the card name. Example, I own an HP 875-p0030qd, and I just got a  GTX 1660. But you did not do that, your inquiry is rather vague, but the answer is not.

If a graphic card requires additional power, the cable is called a PCIE power cable, as shown here, it comes in 6 pin, 8 pin, and 6+2 pin.

According to HP 875-0030qe (RTX2060)  as shown here.

1) External power cable: One 2x3 (6 pin); One 2x4 (8 pin)

2) 500W PSU

The RTX 2060 Super is supposed to be a single 8 pin connector, and needs an additional 15W.  If your existing PSU has the PCIE power 8 pin plug, you OK.  Likely you can squeeze another 15W.

Again we have an impasse, as RTX 2060 cards and the "Super" are as varied as models of Fords. Which manufacturer?  Truly I am not picking on you, just using this dialogue as a learning tool for other inquiries.😀😉
