Dell XPS 9100 Compatible With Nvidia GTX 980/970?

To make it simple, maybe they were thinking, since the 460 needs only a 450w ps, why put into bios anything higher then a gtx460, as the stock ps would not It's served me pretty well for a circa 2010 pc but it's showing its age in some of the other games I play already and, as I'm not likely to get I know for sure i would if i was stuck with a 460w ps. Thanks so much!. (i used to be a big geek with pc's, but then i had my son to watch over..daddy day care..lol, so it limits my reading up on everything http://fixmyacer.com/dell-xps/dell-xps-15-9550-w-intel-530-nvidia-960m-cannot-force-use-of-nvidia-960m.html

Nearly double the fps(hopefully), lower load heat, and i'm sure a fan that won't be annoying(like this 560 is), and it fits in this Dell pos..lol, as well. Thanks again. You said you put the 600w ps in and a 460. If motherboard is upgraded I'd want one that my current ram would fit in. http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/19613505

Then I'd say go for a 970. Provide any additional details you wish below. All rights reserved.REDDIT and the ALIEN Logo are registered trademarks of reddit inc.Advertise - technologyπRendered by PID 115642 on app-787 at 2017-03-22 09:33:45.147853+00:00 running d63839a country code: US.

I would like help choosing wise upgrades that will set me up for further upgrades down the line when funds are available. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? The PCI-E 2.0 vs 3.0 is a non-issue. Also this 560Ti has always run at high temps..some close to 88 degrees C., and the fan is always at 90% when at load(BF3/Crysis 2..both maxed out).

I know for sure i would if i was stuck with a 460w ps. I don't know much about that power supply, but if it powers a 560TI fine, I don't see it having trouble with the 670. btw: I'm real sorry to hear the 670 would not work with your XPS 8300. Most of the time you can't overclock a xeon, but in this case you can.

Add to that lower heat distribution, and that another huge plus. check my blog The case I have wasn't listed but can be seen here: http://mans.io/item/Dell/Studio-XPS-9100 It's pretty much stock I guess except for the RAM. The 560 needed a 500w, so that would not work with that xps 8300. What was Dell thinking?

FWIW: I was stuck in late 2010 to go with Dell, as money was extremely tight and was in process of buying a new house. I only booted up the Dell once with the stock PSU to make sure it worked and then put the 600W & a GTX 460 in it. What a ripoff!. http://fixmyacer.com/dell-xps/dell-xps-9100-system-memory-failed-stress-test.html I know the 660 is set for release soon and for sure will have a lower ps requirment, but you'll need a gpu that requires a ps of 450w.

I remember when looking in late 2010' and seeing the Dell 8300 lineup..but with it's smaller ps, wow...i knew that i could never add more then a gtx 460 into it. Thanks for your reply and the info..as it sure helps to know PCI-E is indeed a non-issue.(as far as it working..i don't mind tiny losses in fps) I must have spent What exactly are you suggesting there?

My concern is that I believe overclocking is not possible with this machine currently.
