Hi all,

I am considering upgrading my graphics card. I currently have a ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti Mini running on a Dell XPS 8700, which seems to have a 460W PSU:


This is the card I am interested in:

It seems it only requires a 450W PSU, so would mine be okay? I am reluctant to upgrade the PSU, as that looks a bit troublesome:

A million thanks in advance.

It looks like it has a 6-pin power cable, and one can buy a converter:
