DELL Precision Tower 5810 Upgrade to latest Graphic Card


I have an older DELL 5810 and found your very useful article on Youtube about upgrading to a GTX 1080 or 1080 Ti. I saw that a Power Supply upgrade is needed too, thank you, (I see there are a number of manufactureres for the GTX 1080 Ti. Are they all the same, just different manufacturer?)

However that article was from quite a while ago. While searching for that GTX 1080, I have found a GeForce RTX3060 Ti for almost the same price and seems much more modern and has very high specs in comparison. I am just an artist and not a computer savvy guy. Will this card work and is it much beeter than the GTX 1080? If not, what is the best option I have for my computer. Much thanks for your assistance.

  • Tech power up says 3060Ti is 14% faster than 1080Ti when it comes to 3D gaming and it seems to have a leg up on computing power over 1080ti as well of about 10%. However 1080ti has 11 GB RAM vs just 8 for the 3060ti and I know more ram is beneficial for 3D rendering, so if you work with 3DStudio and other CAD software more is better. You will also need at least the 685W power supply or the 825W one.  If you get the 685W one you will need a 6+2 pin to 2 x (6 +2 pin) adapter cable as 1080ti has one 8 pin and one 6 pin power connectors.
