Re: Studio XPS 435 MT, graphic card upgrade, #2

what does better mean?  it has no meaning at all...

there are 1000s of cards that run in this PC, that is fact,

there are bench markes of 1000s,  for 2d and 3d and compared.

some want faster gaming other want, just higher resolutions not speed.

others want more textures. and others want quieter cards, and some one more GREEN, low heat.

computing is like an engine, what you want to do with that engine is what maters, first.

xps 435 MT is old PC. 12 years old it is. 2008 made.

any card that fits works

any card that does not overload the PSU nor that funny x16 slot in this PC, (centered is is) will work.

and height,  of card right. your yours is 129mm full height cards, only. (and is best for choices0)

that  slot has no white words with slot limits ,so infamous by dell. so 75watt is the slot.

NO PSU stated by you  400w or even 1000w sold for them

No PCU means no way for me to know if it has the 2 GPU AUX power cables (6 and 8 pin set)  so.,.,,,

there is no answer to  your question.

lacking key facts, like what exact PSU you have, nor why you need the CARD new. (just one example would  be nice so answers can be 10x better)

off hand a 120watt GPU card may work.  ok, not more watts, lacking better PSU.

last and best, see 1000s of others doing the same thing.. learn what it can do, with right PSU.

on fleabuy i see your pc sold with GTX750 with the super long card,  amazing fit that. long.

check out the RTX2070 in the bench mark link above,  does not that answer your question but no price.

no price limit stated, so no me guessing that, (not too expensive means Zero, sorry)

the best card, lacking key facts is the GTX1650, card,  if that price is too high go GTX1050 used and not from funny counterfeits 12,000 miles away,  those are no good, buy cards from USA or EU. not from the Dragon.

The 1050 card will run in most PC made. under 10 years, old. and yours.

if you are dreaming to game?  name a game,.  name one that runs the worse now, , really, tell that first.

tell why you need a better card, I can not guess why, ever.

what is the purse limit? $10,  50 , 100 ,150, 200 what?

what is best, tell me what best means GPU  are VERY VERY COMPLEX. feature wise.

good luck. finding a card. but in fact I could put 100s of cards in there and they would all work below 120w.

4k requires DISPLAY PORT and GPU that supports 4K

oldest GPU in that category would be 

Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Mac Edition

To update to 4K  I would recommend GTX1060 6 GIG video card from ZOTAC so that there are no fit issues.

Re: Studio XPS 435 MT, graphic card upgrade, #2

One consideration, newer Nvidia cards can have trouble working on older motherboards. If you have an i7 CPU, something like an AMD RX 470(new) or HD 7950/7970 or derivatives like R9 280x(used) might be better for you. If you have less than an i7, an RX 460 might be a better idea.

Hope this Helps!

Regards.

Isn't this machine like 10 years old? I suggest you just use it as-is until you can buy a new one. It could die at any moment (especially if you start messing with it inside). Not only that, it only has SATA-2/300 (even SSD will be kinda slow), no USB-3.0, No UEFI (or SecureBoot), slow-cpu, etc.

1. They start at $300.

2. Nice monitor. Use it on the next computer.

3. Correct. That is max res of HDMI-1.2-1.4. HDMI is for HDTV and HomeTheater. For computer-monitors, you should be using DisplayPort now-days.
