Hi Roruh,

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

As I understand that you have query regarding Systemboard & supported GPU for the Lenovo K450e.

Following the list of supported Systemboard:

  • 90003258 for MB FRU NOK  
  • 90003259 for MB FRU W8S  
  • 90003260 for MB FRU W8P 

And regarding GPU upgrade here are few as per HMM

  • MSI@Geforce GTX 750@2G/A/2D/mHDMI Graphic Card          11202804  
  • MSI@Geforce GTX 745@2G/A/DB/H Graphic Card                     11202802
  • Bitland@R7 240@2G/A/DB/H Graphic Card                                 11202407
  • MSI@R9 255@2G/A/D/DP/H Graphic Card                                   11202506

Note: VRAM of above cards are 2GB

 

And also review this related discussions for reference :

You CAN upgrade a k450e gpu to gtx 970

I hope the above information helps.

Hello again, 

 

As far as i know its not tested with GTX 1060 & as far as card dimensions is concerned its 1 inch bigger than GeForce GTX 970. So check the required space also inside your system whether it can sustain extra 1 inch or not.

And also you can consider upgrading the CPU as well as depending upon the apps/games which your are planning to run.

Coz system has  to extract all the power from gtx 1060 otherwise no point of using GTX 1060.

So to conclude you can go for the tested one like GTX 970 considering all the above things.

 

 

Hope it helps you!
