I bought a GTX 1050ti, which has a 75w motherboard power draw, unfortunately my old ASUS A78M-E does not provide enough power to run the graphics card properly. I wanted to buy the aforementioned motherboard, how can I tell if it will allow the graphics card to draw 75w?
Thank you in advance,
Your motherboard can pull a maximum 75W from the PCI-E connector regardless of the card. Your CPU is the issue. It will bottleneck the GPU. Swapping the motherboard won't help.
So my current build is a amd A8 5600k, this says it has a 100w power draw, is there anyway I can install the gtx 1050ti without having to change the processor? And if not, what do you suggest I do, as I cannot return the graphics card.
It should work fine with your board. Minus the bottleneck on CPU intensive games. If it's not posting you may have a bad card. It doesn't require any external power.
Okay, I tried installing it and got the motherboard to work, however I now am stuck on the windows splash screen whenever I try to install the graphics card. I tried uninstalling the amd graphics drivers however, that did not help. I also have the problem that after about 3 seconds of booting up the graphics card fan stops spinning. I tried putting it in a different machine and it managed to boot, however the fans did the same thing. are they not meant to spin or what is the problem. I also tried sending it back to scan computers (where I got it from and they said it was functioning completely fine, so I don't know what to do now. Please provide as many possible tests or solutions as possible, thanks
Tried replacing PSU from stock to CX600. still not working.
