Wild hypothetical: slapping a 3090 into a Lenovo legion prebuilt.

I have a Lenovo legion T530 prebuilt with a rtx 2060 6gb, i7-9700 and 2*8 GB ram (green ram nothing like off the shelf stuff.)

 

What if I wanted to replace the 2060 with an rtx 3090. What would need to be done to make it work?

(Assuming the card fits in the case.)

A new and better power supply, your current one may not meet the power requirements or dont have enough PCIe plugs.

 

airflow, dont know how well it currently does but with a hotter card comes a bigger need for airflow.

I had a look at the internals and it appears to use a standard PSU and ATX case. You're in luck with regards to a power supply upgrade, but is the front of the case fully ventilated? If it is, multiple fans up front will provide some healthy airflow.

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

That gpu will make a LOT of heat so you have to be sure your case has enough airflow otherwise it wont go very good.
