My PC has a Mini ITX case and finding a new GPU for it is a pain, however I found this: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07L8MXC67

And I'm wondering if my power supply (or even motherboard) is able to handle this GPU.

From what I've seen, my current GTX 1060 uses 400 watts of power (24 W when idle), while the GPU linked above uses 550 watts (I have no idea how much it uses when idle.). I don't know if my PSU can handle it though. But seeing as the GTX 1060's power usage is 400 watts and my PSU is allegedly 300 watts, I assume 550 isn't that bad...?

The PC is a HP Pavillion Power 580-199ng.

My Specs:
  • Operating System: Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019 64-bit

  • CPU: i7-8700 6 cores 12 threads 4.3 GHz

I shouldn't have wrote this thread at all because I found out why my GPU uses so little power, and decided on what I want to buy completely differently. Check my new thread please.
