Optiplex 745 power supply

Jump to solution

I want to upgrade to a VisionTek Radeon 256M X1300 video card, but 300w power supply is suggested. I think I saw somewhere my PC came with 250, but now I can't find that info again. Will this card work ok in my machine or will I need to upgrade the power supply emoticon.Confused.title ?

Hi,

You can find detailed information about VisionTek Radeon 256M X1300 video card from the link: http://bit.ly/QlKAPd

As per the specifications, this card supports 250 watt or greater power supply.

Optiplex 745 has three variants: Optiplex 745, Optiplex 745C and Optiplex 745 FLX.

Optiplex 745 and 745FLX has a power supply of 220W. Optiplex 745C has a power supply of 305W.

If the computer is shipped with 305W power supply, you will be able to use this card. To be able to check your system specifications, I would need the Service Tag of your computer.

The X1300 is not an upgrade due to how old it is.

ATI No longer supports the X1300, X1400, X1600, X1800, X1900 series

A radeon HD5450 or better is recommended.
