Will computer support an Nvidia GTX 770 graphics card?

  1. Hello,

    I'm new to gaming and just starting to learn, but I could really use some help.

    I have a Dell Studio 1558 with an Intel Core i3 CPU and a 64-bit operating system, and I'm wondering if it will support an nvidia gtx 770 graphics card.

    I'm not really sure how to tell and most of the explanations I've found have been too technical for me at this point, so I would really appreciate help.

    Can you tell us your complete specs and what wattage your PSU is?

    Thanks.

    We need a few more specs, but based off the basics you have sent and the fact its Dell, probably not without at least a Power Supply swap.

    @GhostRyder is right you are probably going to need a new PSU because that GPU takes on a lot of watts

    Just based off those, im 99% sure unless you have swapped it already that the PSU won't handle a GTX 770. Your going to need to find a PSU that will fit in that case.
