Hi,

I guess the upgradation of  VGA may not be successful. In Dell Optiplex 780 MT specs it says that it supports only MT.

Kindly go through the link given below:

EVGA 450W is too small.  Not enough power on the 3.3V/5V rails.

You also REQUIRE a connector adapter.

RE: Dell Optiplex 780 MT Upgrade PSU and VGA

Yes, you'll be fine, I fit a 500W EVGA PSU and a GTX 460 in my 760. The 780 is a newer revision so you'll be fine.

This is actually a 760 with a 780 SFF motherboard (images are pre-swap), 8GB of DDR3, and a GTX 460 with a 500W PSU. I sold it for $500US.

I ripped out the useless drive cage, slapped some better fans in (namely the Arctic F9) and a GTX 460 with a cut PCI brakcet and removed shroud.

It can play Skyrim maxed out and Fallout 4 on Medium.

The 760 780 and 980 etc use a smaller than standard 24 pin connector.  The MODDIY adapter is REQUIRED.  The 24 pin connector is BLACK not White because its SMALLER than the Standard EPS12v connector.

The issues with 750TI are that it must be single slot card,  it requires MINI TOWER and that its a SHORT version of the card.

This is why the Zotac 1050TI mini ZT-P10510A-10L is a recommended card.
