suggest getting a pci/pcie multi USB adapter for extra USB ports. That or tape the antennas in side the case lol.


500W is a recommendation, but your system will most likely use much less than that. Anandtech's review of the 270X shows around 250W while gaming, and under 300W max running FurMark. There are many other reviews along these lines. The Corsair VS450 isn't the greatest PSU in the world, but should power the 270X. Seeing that other GPUs work with the ...


Will A PCIe Sata Controller help me circumvent AHCI woes? It might. I does not need to. I should though. Now a bit more verbose: AHCI needs to be supported and enabled on the device and its support. This includes the BIOS. Several older chipsets (ICH7 era) did have AHCI capability but not the necessary support in the BIOS to actually use it. Using a ...


Do you have the Machine Type Model of this computer? It might pay to punch it into the Lenovo Support website to check the exact specifications of the machine as they often have very little PSU overhead and you might be pushing the max power output of the PSU. That being said, in the Hardware Maintenance Manual there is a list of compatible GFX cards, ...


Not enough rep to just post this is a comment. Have you tried the card in another slot? I've had motherboards that only let me put my graphics cards in either the closest or farthest slot from the CPU. In fact, my current system only boots with it in the farthest away slot. Otherwise, the only obvious answer would be that the graphics card is dead. The ...


Very few cards today can in theory exceed the x8 3.0 capabilities. In the 260's case, there is no practical difference even if you specifically run tests designed to be able to exceed the specs. So in short, you're fine. A scenario where things would go bad is if there will be significant driver problems with PCI-E bus bandwidth management, but that's in no ...


lsblk -io NAME,TYPE,SIZE,MOUNTPOINT,FSTYPE,MODEL will identify all the block devices, i.e., drives. Then, run sudo hdparm -I /dev/sdX | grep SATA where X is each drive letter found. If the result contains SATA, well, it's the SATA drive. Alternatively, lspci will identify all the PCI devices, including PCIe.
