Legion Y520T-25IKL GPU Upgrade

2018-08-29, 17:03 PM

Hello. 

I have the Lenovo Legion Y520T-25IKL with a Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti 4GB and i5 7400 and 8GB RAM.

I would like to upgrade gpu to this GTX 1070 8GB - https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GTX-1070-GAMING-8G/dp/B01GXOX3SW?th=1&psc=1

What do I need to replace (I think that the power source at least)

Thanks for help.

Solved! See the solution

All models of Y520T-25IKL have a 450w supply, and given the specs of the system, is sufficient to run a GTX 1070.  Check the length of card you linked to, it may be too long for the case, and you may need to choose a shorter card.   I suggest adding ventilated PCI slot covers to the unused slots to assist in cooling of the card.

Hello

 

I have the desktop Lenovo Legion Y520T-25IKL with a Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti 4GB and i5 7400 and 8GB RAM and I would like

to know if I can upgrade the GPU to a RTX 2070 like this one or better. What else do I have to upgrade to get the graphics card running?

 

Thanks for help.
