    Titan x possible/gtx 980 TI (6GB) ? (upgrading) g20aj

    i was wondering or the g20aj (those desktops with small designs) are safe to upgrade to one of those 2 cards for my pc or not.

    these are my specs :
    ASUS G20AJ-DE028S
    Intel® Core™ i7-4790 Processor 3.6GHz
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX970 4GB
    16 GB DDR3

    980 ti works BUT you need to either throttle the power usage by at least 10% or buy a 330w laptop power adapter (see other postings, they have exact model, its a Dell-Alienware)
    I was under the impression the Titan is just far too large to fit inside the case.

    so if i buy a 980ti wich should fit in the case,i should up my power usage to 10% ?
    how do i do that? through bios?

    yes,probably it won't fit though and its not really needed for next few years

    I bought the reference type PNY version of the GTX 980ti, installed MSi Afterburner and lowered the Power Limit (which is connected to temperature too) to 90% max (so it will not be allowed to reach 100% power draw or higher) aka 250w. that way the system is stable and probably hovering around 230w I haven't had any issues since running Afterburner (minimize the app, never hit 'x' as it closes it, save the profile too)

    I think you'd better buy a 330w laptop power adapter
