Looking into a more powerful GPU, seen a reasonably priced model is released. I'm looking at the EVGA GeForce 1660 Ti. Would this be compatible with my tower? Windows 10 Home, 8th gen i7-8086k, 16GB RAM at 2666MHz, stock PSU, currently have a ASUS GTX 1060 6GB. Just wanted to know before I made any kind of purchase.
The 1660 ti requires 500w or larger psu, I believe "stock" in my xps 8930 is 420w. My current asus 1060 6gb requires 400w or larger. I do have a 600w psu I could put in if I do make the purchase. Thank you Mary G
Alright I’m thinking the same thing. I’m not too worried for the PSU since that is easy to swap out. I’m thinking about transferring my whole xps8930 to an NZXT h500 case and putting a 1660ti in. I’m concerned about the bios comparability though since I heard that some dell motherboards only support certain graphics card. If you do try to put the 1660ti in let me know how well it works.
You said that you are worried with BIOS.
At least in my case it worked perfectly, but you have to change two settings on BIOS:
Secure Boot : off
Enable Legacy Mode : on
You don't need to boot on legacy mode (I am using UEFI) but it must be enabled to allow boot.
