Can I run a 1050ti on a 240w PSU?

1 hour ago, TECHNOKID said:

Can I run a Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050 Ti OC Low Profile Graphics Card (GV-N105TOC-4GL) on an HP Elitedesk 800 G1 sff. I have a 240w psu 80+ platinum with an i5 4750?

I've done a bit of digging for you and I've found that your HP Elitdesk 800 G1 SFF has PCI-E capped power limit at 35w while the 750ti 2GB has a TDP of 60w. This shows that a 750ti will not work. If you attempt to use a 750ti in this machine you may not get past the BIOS and even if you do, run a game an it will crash and could damage the card and PCI-E slot. I don't recommend getting the 750ti rather a GT 1030 is probably the best path forward for this PC as it had a max TDP of 30w across all major manufacturers. It may not be the best GPU out there but there isn't much else you can do about the PCI-E power cap. Hope this helps.

I wouldnt do it, those power supplies OEM's use are usually garbage and the card may overpower things.

I mean technically it can be done using PSU calculator I was able to determine you do have just enough juice for it but still... its risky.

Considering this is a small form factor no doubt a proprietary PSU is involved so yeah this will not be ideal.

The 12v railing is not going to be optimal.  That is a POS PSU.  Your full load draw is more near 300 watts so the 240 will not do the job.  Also we don't know the ampage on the 12v rail and what not.

I would upgrade to at least something more than 350w because some of these OEM machines are supposed to output 75w but are limited by the manufacturer to 55w so the card may not respond if it doesn't use external power. If this problem is true in your case then scrap the entire PC as no GPU will work with it even if you upgrade the PSU, the PCI-E is still limited. One suggestion from me is to try get a deal on one of those Optiplex Mini Tower machines. They have loads of potential for upgrades as is my one. I had bought an Optiplex 990 Mini Tower and upgraded it to it's max. It had already an i5 2500 @3.30Ghz and 8gb DDR3 memory. All I had to do was stick a Corsair VS550 (Silver Series not Gold) and a gigabyte RX 570 in there a boom I have a gaming PC.

The actual system draw of an i5 4570 and a 1050 ti is like 150 watts, you have enough power but like @tahmid133712 said, OEM boards definitely break PCIe spec and don't deliver enough power a lot of the time.

using PSU calculator

These are always inaccurate, the load of the system is nowhere near 240 watts.

@TECHNOKID the GT 1030 might work because the power draw is extremely low, but possibly not worth getting because it's so ineffective at gaming.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

What about a 750ti?

Yes that would be enough you can even get the one that doesnt require a power pin but that is lot slower than 1050 Ti..

There are GTX 1050ti cards that are "low power" which means they are powered only by the PCIe so 75W max. 

 

 

https://hothardware.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1050--1050-ti-review?page=6

 

Total system power 143W with 1050ti at stock. 

CPU not at 100% load. 

 

He has an OEM SFF PC, it most likely won't be outputting what a 1050ti requires. I don't know why but many OEM manufacturers limit the power that their PCI-E slots output no matter what PSU you have.

Note that I only use PSU calculator as a baseline, I use outervision and I do account for margin of error when possible and I still gave fair warning that even if the system did support for the GPU it would not be advised due to its low wattage and sub par PSU
