XPS 8500, GeForce GTX 1060 3GB, compatible?

Jump to solution

Hi, I want to replace my AMD Radeon HD 7570 1gb video card with GeForce GTX 1060 3gb.

I want to give you some information about my pc is Dell Xps 8500, CPU: Intel Core i7-3770, mainboard model 0NW73C A01.
I would like to know what are the changes that I must make and what devices to use because in some places on the internet people say changing the power source so that there is enough energy for the new devices can help me in these changes

thanks

If you have the original XPS 8500 power supply it is rated at 460W. The spec for the GTX 1060 is a recommended system power of 400W so unless you system is loaded with other devices that require lots of power you are probably fine but you don't have much reserve. The AMD HD 7570 draws about 60W and the GTX draws about 120W. The other issue is whether or not your current power supply has a 6-pin power connector for the GTX 1060. Your HD 7570 did not require any additional power connector.

I understand, tasks to do to find a power source of more than 460W and that has a 6-pin connector, then done this I can think about replacing my graphics card.
Thanks for the help

Stock power is fine for a 1060

Secure boot must be off and legacy option roms ON.

Older bios may need update in sequence.
