    Hi @ralphjxnxnxn
    if you going to put GTX 1010 6GB than you will need a PSU of 650W.

    It looks like the TC-860 uses a standard ATX form factor PSU. You should be able to find the power you need easily.

    No get ATX-650W PSU as the ATX-300W OEM PSU of the TC-860 wont handle the new gpu 1050ti.

    Dear Eli1689,

       Go visit the Nvidia web site. You should be able to find that GTX 1050 series graphic cards need 300W power. I will not upgrade the power supply for GTX 1050 unless proven needed.

    IIRC the 1050 and 1050ti have different power requirements. Better to be a little too big that a little too small. Too small tends to give weird symptoms...

    Hi, may I know what form factor is the tc 860? Is it ATX?
  • billseybillsey ACE Posts: 16,048 Trailblazer
    It is a DTX motherboard, so a little smaller than ATX.
