I know I already asked this question before, but just to be sure, I was wondering if I could upgrade my Dell Inspiron 3650 Gamer Edition's graphics card to something like this
and if I can't could you tell me why? Also if you could tell me any other graphics cards that I can upgrade to.
I'd wondered about the low-profile comments, because, just looking at a photo of the machine, it seems like it'd take regular-profile video cards (it's not narrow the way the 3647 machines are), and your GTX 950 is even a double-height one...
How much longer of a video card than yours would fit? Or is the one you purchased pushing the limits of space available?
It is narrow because its not a full size tower and its not a full size case. MINI ITX cards fit but require a new power supply. Low profile cards do not use additional power aka 75W is fine but they cant be too long. 12 inch long cards will NOT physically fit into the case. even 10 inch long cards are TOO LONG.
It is possible to hack it working by removing the power supply entirely and using adapter and placing power supply OUTSIDE the case.
Dual slot SHORT cards(GTX960/970) are fine but I do not think 12 inch long cards fit.
A MODDIY adapter is needed to convert 24 pin to 8 pin.
There was also a user that Got an RX460 working without needing to MOD the system.
The card in the video is Gigabyte
