    Max wattage in my pc is 300
  • Hi,
    You can upgrade to a GTX1050, so I guess you will be fine with 1050Ti as well, they both are same size so it will fit.

    Your TC-860 uses a standard ATX power supply, so replacing the 300W unit with a larger one should be easy.

  • billseybillsey ACE Posts: 19,115 Trailblazer
    Sure, you should be able to use any of the newer cards, as long as your PSU meets the spec.

    is the tc 860 capable of case swap?
  • billseybillsey ACE Posts: 19,115 Trailblazer
    Yes, your motherboard is a DTX form factor, which uses the same mounts as the slightly larger uATX. Any case that supports uATX or DTX will work fine.

    what is the cpu cooler mount type tc 860
     
  • billseybillsey ACE Posts: 19,115 Trailblazer
    Yes, the i7-9700 should be a drop in replacement since it's running at the same 65W as your i5-9400. Your system maxes out at 32GB of memory however, it doesn't have enough slots to do 64GB. The CPU cooler that came with it is the standard Intel cooler design. There are replacements that fit the same form factor (72mm fan, IIRC), check in the gaming forum section here for examples...

    can the psu handle the rx 570 acer aspire tc 860 i5 9gen gt 1030

  • billseybillsey ACE Posts: 19,115 Trailblazer
    @VPC26 please start a new thread with your question. Include you full model number (TC-860-xxxx) and we can try to look up the size of your power supply. You can also just pull the cover off the side and take a picture of the sticker and we can get the size from that.
