Any feedback or advice as to whether or not an X51(R1?) can be safely upgraded to an Nvidia 750 Ti?
The specs on the machine are as follows:
i7 (2600) 3.4gHz
230W power supply
My impression is that the 750 Ti card requires less power than the 545, so the original 230W power supply should be sufficient.
I would also like some advice on which "style" of graphics card I should purchase (assuming it is a safe and reasonable upgrade). Thanks in advance for your time and input.
The NVIDIA GTX 750Ti is not a validated upgrade for this computer so we can't guarantee it will work at a 100%. Below you'll find the list of validated Video Cards for your system.
According to NVIDIA this card requires a minimum 300W power supply, so I recommend you get the 330W AC Adapter if you decide to go for the upgrade.
Validated Video Cards for the X51 R1:
|NVIDIA||AC adapter||AMD||AC adapter|
|GeForce GT 545, 1GB||240W||Radeon R9 270, 2GB||330W|
|GeForce GTX 555, 1GB||330W|
|GeForce GT640, 1GB||330W|
|GeForce GTX 645, 1GB||330W|
|GeForce GTX 660, 1.5GB||330W|
Hope this information helps!

I have just noticed the same issue with my order. An Alienware x51 with geforce gtx 750ti and its being delivered ( will arrive this Friday) with a 230 W power supply eventhough Nvidia suggest 330w.
What should be done if it arrives with 230W.
In addition to that I have just received my Dell U2415, what cable should i need to use with GTX 750ti.
