Hello all. I have been planning to upgrade my Dell XPS 8300 with a new power supply, graphics card, and case. At this point, I have not decided to get a new motherboard, and use the one that was inside the 8300. This is the mobo: dell 0y2mrg specs


For my graphicacs card, I have gone with GTX 770. However, after reading online in various places, I have learned that the Dell Bios has compatibility issues with the GTX 680. Some say this problem was patched in a later driver update, but I have not found anything convincing.

GTX 680 not posting on this Dell xps 8300 - Rage3D Discussion Area


However, I have not found any people with 770s having a problem, only people afraid of getting one because of this compatibility issue. My question is, is there anyone who has confirmed they work or don't work? Worst case scenario I can get a new mobo.

Do you have the 770 and have you tried to use it?
If you have issues, you can always replace the Mobo if needed.

As above, minimum power for the GTX 770 is 600W so the OEM PSU would not be sufficient.

[SOLVED] GTX 770 compatible with XPS 8300 motherboard?
I have an absolutely awful AMD Radeon 6450 in my XPS 8300 that has been preventing me from playing certain games and recording World of Warcraft gameplay well with Fraps. My processor and RAM are pretty good though, I have a Quad Core i7 - 2600 @ 3.40GHz with a 8mb cache, and 8 GB of RAM. I was...

Does the GTX 770 work with an XPS 8300? Also which PSU you should I get?
I posted a similar question to this earlier, but I tweaked it a bit to be more specific. I'm looking to upgrade my GPU from this terrible AMD Radeon 6450 currently in my system to a GTX 770. My current specs are: Windows 7 (64-bit) Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.40GHz processors 8gb of ram 1tb Hard...
