Correct.  It's good that you found the specs for your system to be 280w, but I suggest you double check by Googling the part numbers from on the power supply itself.  The 1050 ti would be a simple upgrade, provided you buy the right type of card (short and does not need 6-pin PCIe power), and it meets what you expect from a graphics upgrade -- I suggest you read several comprehensive reviews of that card. 

 

A 1060 or above would involve replacing the power supply, adding an adapter cable, finding a card short enough to fit, and ensuring it does not overheat (as the case and fans are not designed for such a high-wattage card -- there are actions that can mitigate this.)

That doesn't help to identify the system.  Can you run 'sys info' and provide the information next to 'system model'.  Thx.

Google "psref, H50-50" and find your exact model number, click on it, it should tell you the power supply rating, if it is 280w, you can install 1050 ti with no other changes. (when I do it from here, I only see the US models, you need to see the Italian version of the PSREF)  If it has a 180w supply, you will need to upgrade the supply for a 1050 Ti, and for the 1060 irrespective.  See the links below for further information.

@BiggAl,

 

once again, thanks for replying me.

 

i did the search you suggested but i coudlnt find that item on Lenovo website 

 

i googled that query and found out, on another web site, my pc specs and i can read that powe supply is 280Watt (as well as power consumption) 

 

here is my search https://www.monclick.it/prodotti/1/PCO/lenovo/90B60083IX.htm

 

i checked the links you shared (and going to check them better this evening) ; if I understand it all well, it seems that both 1050 ti and 1060 could run once connected to my motherboard. No info at all about GTX1070.. but i'm going to run other searches during this weekend.

 

 

never thought it would be so hard to find this out but I wouldnt have come through it without your help

 

is it logical to think that, the less the power consumption of GPU is, the better it will work considering i got 280W powe supply ?  i mean, if you were me, would sit and go for a 1050 ti or investigate more about 1060/1070 ?

 

i'm saying this because i see that :

 

1050 ti is absorbing 75W

1060 is absorbing 120W

1070 is, instead, 150W

 

thanks again Al

 

I really really appriciate your help

 

ciao

 

Gianluca

Yes.  Your question was answered back in this thread.  

 

Be sure to get a GTX 1650  (non Super) that does not require supplemental 6-pin PCIe power, and will fit in the length of your slot, your system specs say it is 'half-length'.  A long dual-fan card will not fit.  Measure the length of your graphics slot from the rear cover, and compare with the dimensions given in the specs for the cards you are considering.
