Graphic card for Optiplex 7070 MT

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I just bought an Optiplex 7070 MT 210-ASEEOptiPlex 7070 MT BTX

On Dell document I found that it can handle up to a nVidia GeForce GTX 1050, is that correct? Because the system has 260W and that card looks like it needs a power supply of 300W.

Thank you for the help.

Regards,

Jose

I would go with the GTX 1050 Ti AERO ITX 4GT OC.  It's 6.1" long and will fit.  2GT = 2GB VRAM and 4GT = 4GB VRAM.  The 6.9" long GTX 1050 ti 4GT OC would also fit.  The AERO ITX is a little newer and better.  Here's a comparison.  Any other specs can aslo be Googled.

LP = low profile and isn't a requirement for your tower.  Sometimes the LP version of card sacrifices something to get it down in size.

As for a photo of the doc I asked for - Turns out I have a copy of the spec sheet and the GTX 1050 ti is on there.

Could you upload photo of the Dell document?  Just in case, make sure no personal or identifying info is on it, including service tag #.

I believe the 260w PSU can power the GTX 1050 ti.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=22inTVR4P9o  I don't believe Dell would suggest you can run a GTX 1050 ti just so that you would have to buy a bigger PSU that would have to sit outside the case.  Also, the blue PCI-e x16 is for 75w cards.

During the course of the last couple of months, I've quite routinely linked YouTube videos for the 7010/7020/9010/9020, various sizes, PSU's ranging from 240w to 290w, powering 75w cards, including the GTX 1050 ti.  Optiplex 7010 + GTX 1050 ti + YouTube List  I went this route because 7070 videos were harder to pull up, hence the link for the 7060 above.  In that list, sizes and PSU's vary, starting at 240w.

Another might bear down differently, which is why I linked videos and asked for doc photo.  One could claim that the PC's quit after videos were made.  There's too many videos to just be coincidence.  That other one likes to link videos too.

Since there are 75W cards listed  for the TOWER Model there might be an optional Power supply. 
I would check with @DELL-Chris M 

My Guess would be that the
260W typical 92% Efficient PSU (80 PLUS Platinum) power supply is required for that.

I have seen that there are different types of cards:

- 2GT OC

- 4GT LP

- Aero ITX 4G OC

Which one is the correct one?

Thanks again!

Hello, I have an Optiplex 7070mt, the original graphics card is a GT 730, it’s a horror! I tried to install a GTX 1650 but the computer crashes after 1 minute.

My power supply is 260W, your power supply is 260W or 360W because apparently there are optional 360W power supplies, if you have a 360W could you give me the reference so that I am trying to find one, a photo of the label will be great.

@stof22 ,

Please know that I did some digging and could not find a 360w PSU for the 7070 for sale.  I could only find one listing on ebay that was sold out.

Hello, thank you for your response,

concerning my Optiplex, is that the "service tag" number you are asking me ?

I would never ask for your service tag.  It's not public info.

On occasion, @DELL-Cares  or @DELL-Chris M (moderator) might ask for it via private message to further assist.
