Dumb question alert...what are my graphics card upgrade possibilities for the XPS 8900?
Presumably, that's limited by the motherboard and other factors?
Enlighten me! :-)
Why is it that when I buy a 1500 euro pc on the French Dell site, I can't have an easy upgrade path PRESENTED TO ME when I log on? I mean, I want to buy their products - does Dell not want that?!
Don't understand it. It should be part and parcel of the pc-buying experience.
6th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.2 GHz)
24GB Dual Channel DDR4 2133MHz (8GBx2 + 4GBx2)1SR
2TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive + 256GB M.2 Solid State Drive
NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GTX 960 2GB DDR5
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can upgrade to any of the GTX 960/970/980/980ti or GTX 1060/1070/1080 cards.
At some point a power supply upgrade is needed.
There is debate which cards need a new PSU.
My opinion is a GTX 970 or higher 9xx card or a GTX 1070 or higher card needs an upgraded PSU.
Others have reported 970 and 1070 have worked with the stock PSU.
I don't trust a $400 graphics card on the factory PSU so I upgrade them.
I run Seasonic X-650 PSUs in two 8700s ( same case and nearly identical power demand as the 8900).
So the choice is somewhat budget driven.
A GTX 1060 is a great card for 1080p gaming, but a 1070 is better.
970 and 980 cards are falling in price so there are good deals to be found.
hope this helps.
Superbly helpful, thanks very much for your time - I'll get looking at that in the new year...Titanfall 2 awaits! :-)
