Dell Optiplex 780 upgrade Tags: Graphics Cards Power Supplies Optiplex Dell Graphics Last response: September 23, 2012 7:19 PM in Graphics & Displays Share XiticiX September 22, 2012 9:11:27 PM I have a Dell Optiplex 780 - small form factor machine - that I wish to do some gaming on: http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/optiplex-780/pd I have been searching for graphics cards for this machine, and found a few - this one included: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... It obviously may require a new power supply so I found this: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... ...but I am not sure if that will fit. It looks too long to me, but I cannot be sure. Dell's website has some options to upgrade this machine, but I am not sure the capabilities of them: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/category.aspx?c=us&c... The recommendation for power supplies is limited to 305 watt it seems: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/category.aspx?c=us&c... So my question: What should I do here? Does anyone know if the power supply will fit? What about the video card? Is it a good one? I hope to play some Mechwarrior Online and Battlefield 3 with this until I can save enough for a real machine. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

That's the machine I have, yes (minus the SSD and graphics card). Not sure what power supply he used with that. Looks like a Dell power supply, but it can't be 235W like mine with that graphics card in there, can it? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
