Recommended X51 GPU TDP: 150 W (330W PSU)

I appreciate Dell's own in house certification, but I run an R9 290 in my x51 with a benchmark stable 22% core overclock. It's a pretty tight fit that takes some maneuvering, but it works. Of course being a 10.8" card means the the front inlet fan had to be removed, but it's already been confirmed for the r2 along with the r9 280x and 270x, as well as Nvidia's gtx 980 and gtx 970. Despite what Dell says, these cards seem to work fine in the r2.
