Hi smallsam,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Checking with the standard systemboards for the Ideacentre 510s do not show available GPIO (general purpose I/O) header usually needed for a Thunderbolt card so I do not think it is possible to upgrade it for thunderbolt egpu.

I hope this helps answer your query.

Thanks for your reply! 

  I gave up on installing eGPU, I am gonna buy a GPU instead.

I saw another post in this forum, but the solution(graphics card) is not what I want.

  I tried to find a good graphics card that suits my needs, but I can't find the dimensions of my computer's graphics card slot.
  What is the best graphics card that suits this computer?

Edit: The PSU is only 180w

Hi smallsam,

 

Greetings.

 

A low profile GPU card maybe more appropriate as similarly done on this discussion.
