This msg is for the technicians that are capable of answering this. I bought an alienware x51 r2 about 3 years ago in Singapore and i am looking to upgrade my card from the gtx 760 Ti OEM to a gtx 960. Which models of the 960 am i able to fit into the computer, and is it compatible with my PC? Thanks

These are the validated (reference) cards for your system:


nVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 645 (Standard)
nVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 660
nVIDIA® Geforce™ GTX 670 (with 330W adapter)
nVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 745
nVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 960
nVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 750 Ti
nVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 760 Ti
AMD Radeon™ R9 270
AMD Radeon™ R9 270x
AMD Radeon™ R9 370x


So yes, the GTX 960 will work with a 330W AC Adapter and just keep on mind these Maximum dimensions:
