Alienware auroa R4 Graphics card upgrade

Hello, am looking to upgrade my graphics card from a sli gtx 555 to a gtx 770, but the website only says it supports gtx 690 and below.

Is this true? how can my pc NOT support any type of graphics card like a gtx titan or gtx 770. i have the the space calculated and it has more than enough, does it mean its not supported as in does not come with the drivers? or can i not get a gtx 770 and place it into my computer? that would suck.

Hi Silentmistake,

The 700 series was released in April and we haven't tested them on our rigs. The only validated video card family is the 600 series so far.

Thanks for the reply, but even though you haven't tested it, it should work? i understand what you mean just am wondering that it should work even though you haven't done any testing on it.

Yes, it should work normally. Just make sure you connect the proper power cables to the video card.

Hello, am looking to upgrade my graphics card from a sli gtx 555 to a gtx 770,

 
It should work fine, but this user did run into a glitch:
 
 
High-end Video card compatibility does appear to be an issue these days (In Alienware and XPS anyway) ... not sure why. Likely PCIe v3.0, UEFI and vBIOS, power amps, something like that.

Hi Alexander,

Will GTX titan be a configuration option for Aurora in the future? I have been waiting for Alienware to include GTX titan into their products.
