Can i upgrade my graphics card to a 1070

Hi

 

Three things need to be true to install and successfully boot an Nvidia 1000 series graphics card:

 

1. UEFI BIOS,

 

2. 500 watt or greater power supply with the correct supplemental PCIe power connectors,

 

3. A PCIe 2.0 or 3.0 x16 slot and the required room in the chassis to fit a dual slot 10.5 inch or greater length graphics card.

Hello @GTXAO

 

Your computer uses a PCI Express 2.0 x16 port for graphics cards. Thankfully the GEFORCE GTX 1070 runs on this sockets perfectly.

You will also need to make sure you have  a Power Supply capable of at least 500 W.

You can also update the BIOS to make sure everything is up to date:

If you need further assistance, let us know.

 

If this answers your inquiry, you can mark the thread as resolved.

 

Best regards.
