    The RTX 2080 Super is the slightly better refresh of the RTX 2080. The RTX 2080 Ti is better than both. The price sounds about right, too.

    ... Just google the model of the computer. Should be able to quickly find out what the PSU is for it and determine if it's stand ATX or if that model use's something different. And further if an adapter is even available.

    If it's something HP only... you may still get lucky and be able to e-bay a higher wattage PSU. Often companies like HP, Dell and Lenovo will have either a higher tier spec of the same model or another model with the same chassis that use's a higher wattage PSU.

    p.s. Might also help for us to know the model as well so we can give better advice :)

    some 2080-ti you can overclock, others you can't. I have an RTX 2080-ti I bought from Nvidia, while I am very happy with it (bought it a couple years ago) I can't overclock, it has no room in the specs. if you are into OC make sure you get one that can. if you don't care, then just play and be happy. IMHO

    I am not going into that stuff. Too much hassle and besides, it is one of the cards that has no overhead. I only stated it has that issue, or not able. I don't care. someday I can upgrade.

    It literally takes a minute, and provides the same or better performance, means less power draw, lower temperatures and a longer lifespan.
