Graphics cards compatible with Dell Studio XPS 8100

This question is answered

Hi there,

I have just upgraded my PSU to 700W ready for a new graphics card. I am wondering if anyone knows of a list of graphics cards which would be compatible with my computer. I was looking in the GTX 580 range, but wasn't sure about dimensions of the graphics cards being a problem?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

  • Hi chrisyb322,

    It is difficult to mention the list of all the graphics cards compatible with the machine’s current configuration. With the original power supply in the machine, Dell recommends the following graphics cards on the machine:

    ATI® Radeon® HD 5770

    NVIDIA®GeForce GTX 260

    NVIDIA® GeForce GTS 240

    NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 220

    Now that you have tested the new 700W power supply working fine in the machine. Upgrading the graphics card to GeForce GTX 580 is the correct decision. The size of the graphics card will not be a problem as this machine can accommodate graphics cards of size:

    Length: 10.5 inches (267 mm)

    Height: 4.376 inches (111 mm)

    Width: Dual-slot

    GeForce GTX 580 graphics card has exactly the same dimensions.

    For more details on the other specifications of GeForce GTX 580 graphics card you can refer to the following link:

    Please keep me posted if you need any further help.

    Thanks & Regards

  • Wow! What an informative answer! Thank you so much!

  • Ooops! I think I may have confused you. I do not want to replace  the card I have; I was told that I could add one to that. If that is not possible then I am in trouble, because I cannot afford the GeForce cards. Sorry about the confusion.

  • Thanks for the quick and informative feedback, just what i needed

    cheers Zohaib
