External GPU - For desktop or outside of case
My computer upgrades are limited.
Would it be possible to use a 4 Solid Capacitors VER PCIe 1x to 16x PCI Express Extender Powered Riser Card for my computer to use an external GPU.
I know many use this or use things like that for laptops, not Desktops. My PSU is limited to about 410 watts (over all) I think. I would like to get the GTX 1060 6 GB in the future for my computer.
I think my PSU could handle it but there is also cooling issues for it possibly from what I read. So I thought it would be easier to do a External GPU upgrade. So could I use the thing I stated in the beginning. Or could I just get another PSU, hook it up to my GPU, hook the GPU in the motherboard but leave the side case open of course to get the PSU cords plugged in.
Would that be ok?
Unless there is a way to get the PSU cords from outside to the GPU while in the case shut..... This may be hard to process or understand... I'm not an expert, so sorry.
Basically, I'm just trying to get an GPU outside my case with another PSU if needed.....
I have an i7 4770k (I think lol or around there)
- 8 GB of DDR3 RAM
- About 410 watts overall
- GTX 760
Is this a good question?
