    GPU:
    AMD Radeon RX 580
    My specs are
    • Windows 10
    • AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Processor
    • RAM: 16 GB / Storage: 2 TB HDD & 512 GB SSD
    • Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 580
    • 500w
    My question is can i put a Nvidia 1080ti in there i seen somewhere you need 600w plus for 1080ti if that's the case how do i know what new psu to get. Is there anything else i need to know. I never put new parts in a pc before.

    First off you need to get the exact model and brand of your PSU.

    If you are new to PCs and bought a prebuilt or a random PSU, likely it's not very good.

    500w will be OK unless heavy OCing on a 1080Ti, but assuming you have a generic/bad PSU I'd recommend something like an EVGA G3 650W

    Why buy a pre built if your replacing the gpu? Just build a total unit save more and no bloatware from HP.
