Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 6gb on ThinkCentre M710 i7

I'm planning to get ThinkCentre M710 i7 but not sure I can install the aforementioned card. Is  it possible to install additional RAM? And will the card work without any problems?

Thanks

Re: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 6gb on ThinkCentre M710 i7

There are several impediments with the new ThinkCentre tower chassis, introduced with the M710/M910, to running a higher spec graphics card like a GTX 1060. 

 

Foremost, a considerably stronger power supply would be needed, and as yet, no one has determined how to upgrade the power supply in a M710t (or M720t same chassis -- it is not an ATX or TFX supply.)   Secondly, the tower is less deep than previous generations, and a shorter card would be needed; thirdly, the M710t does not have a rear case fan to remove heat from the card, but this could be rectified by installing one from a M910t, or a fixed speed quiet aftermarket fan.
