    Hey all,

    I'm trying to see if there are options to upgrade the psu of these things. I know they come with a 180w psu and I'm wondering if there are options to get a more beefy one to power a low profile gpu like a 1050 ti or something.

    If it's the SFF you can't fit a dual slot GPU anyway. GT 1030 would be the best you could install and that won't need a PSU change.

    Yeah it's the sff. I think those low profile 1050 ti's would fit but the stock psu might not be enough to power it.

    I could just use a 1030 but thats a bit lame.

    You should probably take 10 seconds out of your day and pop the side panel off to have a look inside.

    Yeah I just did that and now i feel like a troll, You're right, there is no space. I bought this without much research and I though it would be similar to the prodesk 400 g1 sff which does have space for a discrete card.

    Just took it apart a bit further, It looks like the mobo is using 24 pins for power and 4 pins for the cpu which is pretty standard.

    nah its cool, i have a Dell 9020 which I think is the last modern Dell SFF that fits a 1050Ti but it's in a 4x pcie 2.0 lane off the chipset hah.
