Think Centre M710t.. Will it support GTX 1050 or other high series graphics??

 

I am from India and bought  Think Centre M710t

 

 

  • Processor

    Intel Core i5-7400 Processor ( 3.00GHz 2400MHz 6MB )

  •  
    Operating Systemcpu 2.JPGCpu.JPG

    Windows 10 Pro 64

  •  
    Memory

    4.0GB + 8.0GB PC4-19200 DDR4 UDIMM 2400MHz

     

     

    Graphics
    • NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 730
  •  
    Hard Drive

    1TB 5400 rpm

     

     

    I think PSU is also 180W. I am planning to change the graphics because it is not running games like witcher III smoothly even in medium and low settings. Since the graphis slot is compact and PSU is 180W i am confused will the Nvidea 1050GTX or other GTX series above 900 will work or not.Thanks in advance.

The stock psu is insufficient to run a 75watt (gtx 1050) or higher tdp gpu.  

 

Found you here too.
They were using the gt 1030 in that thread because its 30w tdp worked within the limits of the person's 180watt psu.
It's power draw was the same/similar as the gt 730 included as option with that pc.
Anything more would be too much power consumption for the 180watt psu.

You cannot run a more powerful gpu without upgrading psu (and you need a special adapter for that).   If that interests you there are plenty of threads on that subject in these forums.  Best of luck!

So you mean to say GT 1030 is the best bet if I want to stick to the same PSU?

 

Well if I want to upgrade considering the compact size of the slot and the power supply unit space which GPU and PSU(how much watt) do you recommend? 

 

Thanks.

This thread should cover psu questions.  

As for how many watts psu i would recommend? 

Sorry to be so vague but you obviously want a psu more capable than what you need.
There are some approximate calculators for this.
I see from 450w to 650w psu on sale for good prices very often.     

As for GPU recommendation, im sorry to say it would seem most cost efficient to use a gt 1030.
You can run a gtx 1050 if your mind is set on that, it is possible, but it will become an investment in other components (psu, adapter, your time).
Depends on what you want to spend vs what you plan to do with it.

Thanks. I used a calculator which came around 280W but recommend 450 or more. Hope 450W will do.

I cannot find exact measurements in the Hardware Maintence Manual but i would also double check the gpu you are planning on using will fit.  The door that holds the storage drive may limit what size gpu you can fit.

Can you suggest one? Keeping the measurements in mind.

Based off the PSREF specifications and the theoretical fact that some may have an amd r7 350;  you should at least be able to fit 6.61 inches or 168mm length.
I would highly recommend you unplug power and measure tho. 
There are single fan double wide gtx 1050 within those dimensions if that is still your goal.

Thanks a million. I il check em out. Well I had another issue. It takes around 11 sec to startup the PC. Which is way more than a friends i3 processor (gpu-nvidea 610 and 8gb ram, 210w psu). I just have 5-6 essential apps running at startup. Any suggestions?

11 seconds is impressive on a 5,400 rpm hdd.
When i boot off my hdd i feel like it takes an entire minute.  
Your friend may possibly be using an ssd for OS.
