Full size Dell Optiplex 980 graphics card upgrade question please...

Hello.  I have the full sized desk top version of the Dell Optiplex 980.

I have purchased an AMD Radeon R5 230 2GB Graphics Card to upgrade; however, I am now worried that it will not work/fit into my Optiplex 980 and whether my power supply can handle if it indeed it will work/fit... 

I would really appreciate it if someone with expertise could school me!

Thank you.

RE: Full size Dell Optiplex 980 graphics card upgrade question please...

What type of Optiplex chassis and what brand was the card? For example, as per the page here this R5 230 will fit in the 980 Desktop and probably the minitower version of your Optiplex. And, being that this card works and lists your system as compatible I would think you should be good with the power supply, but was does the card state are the power requirements?


Best regards,

Brad
