I was wondering what is the max watts the PCIe x16 card slot can draw in the Dell Inspiron 3668 desktop?

According to the Dell Regulatory and Environmental Datasheet (downloads.dell.com/.../dell inspiron 3668,d19m,d19m003,dell regulatory and environmental datasheet.pdf) on page 5, the 3668 has 5 different power supply models all rated at 240 watts. My 3668 desktop came with model H240ES-02 (plugloadsolutions.com/.../DELL_H240ES-02_240W_ECOS 4616_Report.pdf) This is a good efficient power supply and I have changed my mind about installing a GT 1030. The one I have is the EVGA GTX 1050 Ti (single fan) non overclock card. I will install it tomorrow and report back.

I have the same specs as you WastefulNick and my 3668 came with a 240 watt power supply. I know Dell sells a i7 3668 that comes with a GTX 1050 2GB. A rep at Dell told me all Inspiron 3668 desktops come with a 240 watt power supply. I wanted to install a GTX 1050 Ti but a local computer store tech told me the 240 watts might not be enough for this graphics card. I decided to go with a GT 1030, which has 30 watts of power consumption compared to the 75W of the 1050 Ti. I'm planning on installing one this coming week and will keep you posted.
