So i have a prebuilt hp 6300 small form factor that has a gt 1030 installed in it, i want to upgrade the gpu to a gtx 1050ti low profile but i found this one guy thats telling me that the pcie slot in my pc provides only 25 watts of power and if i install a gtx 1050ti in my pc i will get a blank screen. is this true? this is the pc https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c03387773 im making this thread because ive seen videos on youtube telling people to buy low profile cards since they ask for no extra power and only use power from pcie slot but im being told that my pcie slot cant deliver enough power. i googled how much power a pcie slot can provide and it said 75watts so im confused.

@DarkRaiden112 I'm sure the motherboard will be capable of delivering up to 75 watts of power to the gpu which should be enough to power the 1030. I havent heard of a Pcie 3.0 slot that has only 25 watts output.

    Not to mention, monirors capable of 4k/120Hz over hdmi require an hdmi 2.1 port, which is relatively rare atm

    It's a good deal for the price. You aren't getting a 4k/120Hz display for a bit more

    lmao @ mislead. Coming from a guy who has consulted me for display advice, that's incredibly hilarious :ROFLMAO: (receipts can be provided if needed)

    Besides, VRR works best at higher refresh rates. Not as "game changing" as people think below 60fps

    chalo i guess i can put that on the backburner for now

    Not a viable solution to overclock monitors

    don't think it will be possible at most you will get 10hz more out of it and it could cause some stability issues if the ports on the monitor are not rated for higher refresh rate
    yeah even factory supported over locks dont go higher than 20-30hz

    well, my last 1080p monitor is able to run in 1440p without any issue. I have to imagine that one might overclock too (?)

    Even intel hd can push 144hz on Windows so there is no reason to bound yourself to a 60hz panel

    its not specifically for the console, its just an replacement of the old monitor i have
    doesn't feel like an upgrade . 1440p high refresh is a significantly better investment like Goldie said

    Hardware is always getting more powerful even the 3060 ti is supposed to be able to do 2k 144hz
    benefits of iterative hardware, unlike being stuck to a specification for almost a decade

    Its just not just gaming everything feels smoother on a high refresh rate monitor even general windows usage and browsing the internet

    but again i'll probably need a lot more new hardware to utilize anything > 60hz, including a new PC which I don't see happening for a long while

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    that does make sense in a way, i guess i can keep looking at some other deals

  • GoldenHawk GoldenHawk:
    Better to spend a bit more to get something that will be more future proof 60hz panel in 2020 isnt viable imo

    It's a native 60hz panel which is a dealbreaker at least choose one that in addition to 4k60 can go to 120hz on 2k so you can get high refresh rate gaming
    those naturally become a lot more expensive, just looking at it because of price point.
