Hi Sjh124,

Since the Dell Precision 690 goes with 750 watts Power supply and it has 16X PCI-e slot, the GTX 550 ti works on your computer.

For more information you can also refer this link mentioned below.

let us know if this helps.

Thanks and Regards,

The following nVidia gEfiorce cards i have tested with the 690 workstation

560

570

960 gtx

1050 ti

1060 gtx

most all variations too.  the 570 is barely enough to be worth it  but now that the price on the 1060 has came down that is one badass card all considering for the 690

I have ran 980 GTX cards which are not supposed to be installed due to PCI-e specification but the do backslide to work.

memory has never been an issue like in some desktops as long as your 690 dark posts or posts with another card it will work.  darkpost = you get proper post beeps and the all clear but no video normally this would be considered a no post no video error in the 690 i have received the double post beep after a while of waiting and the all clear diag lights and we call that a dark post in other words a sucessful post no video condition that i have only ever seen in the dell 690.
