Hi guys.
Thanks for your time.
I have a HP ENVY 750-150 i7-6700 with GTX 970.
I feel some slowness when i play game on 4K monitor.
I'm wondering can i upgrade the graphic card to RTX 2070 or GTX 1080 Ti?
Does it fit for the motherboard or power?
Please advise.

Your motherboard is of Form factor: uATX, and it also has one 1 PCI Express x16 (Gen3.0) slot for the GPU. You can use any GPU, but whether it will fit will also depend on the size of your ATX cabinet. Problem is, some of those high-end RTX 2070 and GTX 1080 Ti models, not all, might be slightly bigger to fit inside that HP envy cabinet.

You need to check the GPU before buying, as to whether it will fit easily in your HP machine. Regarding the PSU, that HP system comes with an internal 500Watts unit, (100V-240V), which might sometimes work, but I won't advice you to use this prebuilt PSU to power up any of those cards. Upgrade your current power supply unit to a min 550-600 watts high quality PSU from reputed brands like Seasonic, EVGA, Corsair, FSP, OCZ, Antec,and other similar brands.

As you can see from this database, most of the RTX 2070/1080 Ti cards are having a min length of 8 inches, and it goes all the way to 12/13 inches in length as well. Most of these cards are dual slot in width though.

Hi

Thank you very much for the reply.
That is the cabinet i have. It seems like a regular size case right ?
Do you think it will fit 2070 or 1080 ti?

According to the specs posted on HP's website, these are the exact dimensions of the chassis. You need to check whether there is enough room inside the cabinet, starting from the PCI-express slot till the rear of the chassis. What about your current card, the GTX 970 ?

Does it fit easily, and which branded model is that card ? Reference, or one of the custom AIB models ? But I think any of the new cards might fit, though don't buy those cards which are more than 11~inches in length, if the space is less. Can't you buy a bigger cabinet instead, because you also need to buy/upgrade that HP power supply unit with a new one ?? This PSU might as well work, but it would be much better if you can get hold of some other quality PSU to power any of those high-end GPUs.

  • Height: 40.11 cm (15.79 in)
  • Width: 16.51 cm (6.50 in)
  • Depth: 40.49 cm (15.94 in)
