GTX 780 and eGPU ?
i am newbie and want to ask some questions. I have an HP Elitebook 8570p and I am planning to use a GTX 780 with an EXP GDC 8.4. So is it ok? I am wondering whether the Dell power of the beast is enough for this card or i have to buy ATX power ?
A GTX780 has a 250W TDP, exceeding the 220W output of a Dell DA-2. Even a GTX770 cannot be ran comfortably with that PSU. You'd then either require a more powerful PSU such an ATX PSU or a lower power consumption card like a GTX680 (195W), GTX1050Ti (75W), GTX1060 (120w), GTX1070 (150W) to run with your Dell DA-2.
