Sorry this has probably been on 100 + posts, but search didn't find my system.
I am looking for advise on upgrading my systems graphics card; Dell XPS7100 AMD Phenom II x6 1035t ; 2.6 ghz ; 6GB of RAM 64 git windows 7. Currently for gaming have a HD 5460 card would like to upgrade to a GTX960. Can my motherboard handle this without issues (ie BIOS changes etc) and the heat if I toss in a 500W power supply to run it? I think the CPU can handle it for the most part or am i missing something?
Would appreciate all of your advise. Thanks.
You will need a corsair CS750M power supply and a specific GTX 960.
The various models seem to be VERY VERY VERY Picky about which ones work or not.
Thats why I wanted to nail that down.
In older dells like Precision T3400 BIOS A09 I've used an EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC ACX 2.0+ 2GB GDDR5 128bit, 02G-P4-2966-KR
