Inspiron 3650, upgrade GPU and PSU

Jump to solution

I have recently bought a deskotp inspiron 3650 with intel i7 6400 cpu and amd radeon r9360 gpu and 2 tb hard disk. I want to upgrade gpu with a better one but i need to know if the new gpu will fit in case. Are there better gpus than r9 360 that will fit in case with that 240 Watt  psu? If i want upgrade the psu,are there psu available 400 or 500 wat which will fit in case with adaptors?I read somewhere that if someone upgrades the psu in that model might affect negativelly the motheboard ,is that true?

" negativelly the motheboard ,is that true"  No this is false.

HOWEVER you cant use a stock power supply because the motherboard uses a proprietary 8 pin connector.

Moddiy makes a 24 pin to 8 pin adapter.

Regular size psu must sit outside the case.

That PSU is TOO BIG to fit.  The teeny tiny doll house 3650 PSU is SMALLER THAN TFX.

3. That being the case its not upgradeable.  The rear view is bad news.
