Will the GTX 1060 work in a XPS 8700?

Jump to solution

I'm looking to upgrade my XPS 8700 with a 1060 3gb. In theory, if I remove the current video drivers, update the bios to A10 and slap that baby in everything should be working fine?

card : EVGA GTX 1060 3GB

i7-4790

16gb RAM

GTX 745

460w PSU

Yes, the 10x0 cards work well with BIOS A10 for Win7/81 or A11 for Win10.

I prefer a fullsize card with two fans like the MSI Computer GTX 1060 3GT, or the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Dual-Fan OC Edition, or the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 Windforce OC 3GB or EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB FTW DT GAMING ACX 3.0.

Also, I think I'd spend $20 or $30 more and get the 6GB version.

My preference has been the MSI Gaming TwinFrozr style cards.

And, you can sell the GTX 745 for $30 to $50 on eBay.

good luck.
