RE: 35W Limit on PCIe x16 slot: Optiplex 790 SFF
Exactly. Thanks for verifying that, Speedstep. In fact, shortly after I posted this (back in Sep), I installed a GTX 750 Ti low profile Gigabyte gfx card in my Optiplex 790. Maxed out at 100% GPU usage, the draw on the +12V rail is an estimated 14 to 14.5 amps max. Since then, I have been running this setup now every day for many hours per day including gaming.
