M90p Tower: GPU upgrade to GTX 1050 Ti? SOLVED: installed GTX 1060

 

I have a m90p 5498F2M tower desktop I was wondering if my motherboard would be compatible with a GTX 1050 Ti ,

specifically ( INNO3D GTX 1050 Ti X2)

- in terms of BIOS and being able to supply enough power through the PCI express port.

I think my mother board is a iq57m (not sure on the bios but I know it is from 2010 and that it is legacy)

 

I have looked at the support page and under the nvida drivers readme, the 1050 Ti was listed.

 

I know the card will fit, as i have already fitted a Asus Radeon HD7750, also i have put in a new 450 watt PSU already.

Thanks

The graphics card white list is not so explicit that certain makes of card will work and others will not.  

 

So, if the card model is on the supported card list (or from a search here is known to work), you have enough power for it, and it will fit in the available slot length, then 99.9% chance it will work (all baring that the x16 slot is defective, which has happened here before, once or twice.)

To those who see this post and are thinking the same, 

I ended up buying a Gigabyte gtx 1060 OC 3G,

 

It works perfectly so far, no compatability issues with the older motherboard and can run games on high and at 1080p.

 

Despite the older motherboard and first gen i5-650 (which hasn't caused any bottlenecking issues) everything runs smoothly.

Well done!  Thanks for reporting back.  Watch the temps, ventilated PCI slot covers next to the card are known to help.
