I'm planning on getting a optiplex 9020 (refurb.) for a decent pc, better than my current one. I'm also planning on getting a MSI Dual Fan 4G NVIDIA 1050 TI gaming graphics card and slapping that card into the Optiplex. First, is this plasuible aka - is the Optiplex READY for gaming? and two - Does the graphics card even fit? I would really like to know this so i don't waste my money.
No Optiplex is READY for gaming or Designed for Gaming. Only Short Cards work and ONLY in the MINI TOWER and ONLY with SECURE BOOT OFF and LEGACY CSM ON. The video slot is cut off by the hard drive mounting area. The power Supply uses proprietary connectors.
