Upgrading Dell XPS 8100 Tags: Graphics Cards Dell Studio Xps Intel i7 Graphics Last response: December 27, 2011 10:23 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Bertram_Van_Munster December 27, 2011 10:08:49 PM I'm looking to possibly upgrade my Dell XPS 8100. It has a core i7 860 @ 2.80 ghz. Currently I have an ATI Radeon HD 5770, looking to move up to a 6950 or a GTX 560. I was wondering what all will I need to upgrade/change with my current system to be able to use these cards? I know I will need to upgrade the PSU but not sure what else I will need to do.

Bertram_Van_Munster December 27, 2011 10:13:19 PM Yeah that is kind of what I am thinking. Currently I have a 350 watt PSU, how much wattage would you recommend for a new PSU?

Bertram_Van_Munster December 27, 2011 10:20:13 PM What would be your verdict between getting a 6950 or a 560? esrever a c 91 U Graphics card December 27, 2011 10:23:57 PM I would say the 6950 due to it being slightly more powerful but either one would be good. The 560 ti does OC quite well from what I heard if you want to try it. mostly just depend on the games play, if you play a lot of nvidia sponsored titles you should definately get the 560 ti but other than that the 6950 should be a bit faster.
