Dell Studio XPS 435MT Upgrade


I've currently got an old dell xps 435mt w/ a nvidia gt 220 and I'd like to upgrade and I was wondering if these parts would be compatible with the case.

  1. Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums! (specs on page 56)

    The Graphics card you selected consumes 116 Watts max power. The Thermaltake Litepower 500w will meet the power requirements. Dell conveniently omits mentioning the PCI slot power supplied by through the motherboard. I know this power is 75 watts on lesser Dell systems like the Optiplex series which I have.

    Go ahead, you have a good chance of getting this to work and a call to Dell tech support may confirm it.
  2. Awesome! Thanks Ubrales.
  3. Let us know the outcome so that others and I can benefit from your experience.

    The GeForce 8400 GS I installed in an Optiplex 745 works great! In use for about 6 months. But again, it is not as powerful as your computer or the card you selected.
  4. I'll let you know if I go ahead with it
