Will this handle a 1050TI?

    Hey guys,

    My mate just bought a second hand Dell PC, decent specs etc..but the PSU with it is a DELL 350W also with a 6 pin connector for the GPU! Which surprised me.

    Will this PSU likely run a 1050/1050TI or should the PSU be upgraded?


    Cheers.

    There have been many reports and YouTube videos of people using a gtx 1050 or gtx1050 ti on old dell optiplex systems. This includes the small form factor ones with 220w PSU that don't have a 6 pin power supply connector, and need a low profile bracket.

    Just YouTube optiplex 9010 graphics card upgrade and you'll find them.

    In summary you'll be fine.

    This guy puts a GTX1050 Ti into a Dell Optiplex 790 SFF. It's a worse power supply but the games run fine.
