I've seen a number of threads talking about upgrading a dell xps 8500, specifically the graphics card. Theres a good one about the evga Gtx 970, and alot of others where people recommend the 7970 and 7770( i believe that's the correct names). What i want to do is upgrade to the msi r9 390 8gb gaming card. Mainly what i want to know is will the stock motherboard for the 8500 support a r9 390. I've seen a few threads where people have stated that there have been bios issues with the 8500 when upgrading to a different card. I'm aware of the high possibility of the case not being large enough for the card and also that the psu will need to be upgraded. I don't have a problem with upgrading psu and case to get the card, but i don't want to have to shell out the extra cash for a new motherboard on top of all that if i don't have to. So has anyone tried to use the r9 390 on the xps 8500, is it possible, thanks in advance for any help.

Foreverman86 did you end up installing the MSI R9 390 in your Dell 8500? If so how did it work out?
