Fingers crossed (s)he is using the original hp 850w power supply.Edit: Hopefully this will help others in the future - I went out and bought a Radeon R9-380 video card. The original 850w power supply runs it just fine.

Quote from: denj on January 13, 2017, 10:45:41 pmmy CPU is an X5675. I don't know if this matters or not but the GTX 1080 has a TDP of 180W. The R9 290X has a TDP of 250W. I'm assuming your GTX 1080 is only using the 8 pin or 2 x 6 pin since PCI interface provides 75W, 8 pin pci provides 150W and 6 pin pci provides 75W. Question for you all: Is it possible for me to run a 250W GPU (like my r9 290x) on 850W?
QuoteA few of the times the PC turned on, it immediately shutdown and the molex connector with two (12V + ground) was extremely hot to the touch.
QuoteMy old card the 7850 would post and load up the bios after a little bit of delay which I assume is for checking the system stability
