I working on upgrading my Lenovo S510 Tower, both RAMs (from 4GB to 16GB) and graphic card (from Intel® Integrated Graphics to GeForce GTX 1050). I tried to get the motherboard details from the System Information but it says "not available". The system breif details are in this link (i5-6500 Processor). Having said that, I would like to know the following details before I proceed:
- What is the compatible RAM speed ? (2133MHz or 2400MHz)
- Will the graphic card in this link considered to be compatible ?
- Do I need to upgrade the power supply, or the existing will work just fine?
Solved! Go to Solution.

The specs show that it has a 180w supply, not enough for a GTX 1050 / Ti. As it does show GT 720 as an factory option, then the GT 1030 DDR5 will work. Be sure to get the DDR5 version, and one short enough for the slot, this Gigabyte is a good choice for those reasons (and low-profile will work for SFF models): Gigabyte GV-N1030D5-2GL. Go to Kingston and Crucial to look for memory upgrade options for your specific model.
