install GEFORCE RTX 3090 in Poweredge T440

I have a Dell PowerEdge T440 with 64GB of RAM, 2 Bronze CPUs, 2 1100W power Supplies and NO add-on cards.

Can I install a GEFORCE RTX 3090 GPU?

If I install the above card, can I also install the ASUS STX II (7.1) sound card?

Both require direct power supply connections but 1 of the 1100W power supplies is more than enough.

Detailed answers are greatly appreciated.

TY In Advance.

As much as I would like to provide details for you, but there is no documentation for T440 support on RTX 3090. You can refer to this white paper for support GPU on T440: https://dell.to/3abdiEX


You can refer to the user guide for T440 on GPU installation requirement on page 75: https://dl.dell.com/topicspdf/poweredge-t440_owners-manual10_en-us.pdf 


GPU installation for the server, may need GPU enablement kit. Here the existing old thread about it: https://dell.to/3gdmRqK. But the kit is available for support GPU only. So this is for your reference. 


As for sound card, I doubt it would work, as you may need drivers to work on the server. And you will need to install server supported OS. 


If you do manage to successfully install both cards and working well, do update us here for sharing to other users.
