Hi all. I have an R1 version of the X51, and I'm looking to upgrade the graphics card. I currently have an Geforce GTX 750 TI , so can anyone recommend a better card that will fit in the X51 case and will be compatible with the power consumption? I don't want to mess with modifying cards in any way, so I'm happy to take something less than the best if it will just be "plug and play". Also, if it's available on Amazon UK, that would help too.

Thanks for any recommendations!

Hi. When you say "blower", I presume you mean a fan-cooled one? Can you point me to a suitable example of a card that would work on Amazon?

You need to use card with "blower" fan (difference explained in video).

I have X51 R2 with 330w power supply with GTX 1060 6GB from Zotac (not available anymore).

But it looks like blower cards have vanished from market, but maybe you can find GTX 1060 founders edition by nvidia

That is not a blower card. It will overheat inside X51. Also maximum lenght is 9.5" inches. Longer card will not fit, like this one from ASUS. It has blower fan, but is way loo long

Currently i don't see suitable card for X51 at Amazon.co.uk. They are propably waiting for annoucement of new models..

Thanks for all the information everyone. I think I'll wait to see what comes up next from Nvidia.
