I have a dell optiplex with a 265w PSU and a 2nd Gen i5 (95W I think) - Would it handle this?

Not sure. See what recommendations they ask for PSU. It's usually 300+ watt.

Thanks, I'm seeing if anybody's brave enough to try it.

I've used one with a 240w and i5-2500 and everything was just fine. They recommend 300w for even the Ti model and the tiny 30w GT 1030 as well. If you don't have many devices in your computer then you'll be fine. What do you have? Drive count, fans, memory DIMMs, etc.

SSD and DVD Burner (which I could take or leave) nothing else on it. I have a GT 1030 in it now, But could return to take advantage of this

Peak system consumption with enthusiast class components hit sub-200w. Check this out:

For low profile, this is pretty darn good IMO

I just posted this reply to another guy, but here ya go:
http://www.legitreviews.com/msi-g..._187298/14

Under 200w total system consumption. You should be safe. It's almost twice as powerful as the GT 1030. You'll be happier for sure. And seriously, you could drop in a more powerful CPU if you go to Ivy and probably see a worthwhile fps gain, along with saving yourself some wattage. Even the mighty 3770K has only a 77w TDP, but you could even go with a 65w i5-3570s or 65w i7-3770s for cheap on eBay, if it's worth the time and piece of mind. The 3570s often sells for around $70 or less. Just be sure to update your BIOS to accept the new architecture, if it hasn't been already.

That's exactly why I posted this. Usually we see the LP cards sell for a hefty premium over the standard, so I completely agree.

Newegg is selling the Zotac GTX 1050 for $119.99 via eBay. (I believe it is the mini model but not LP) If you were offered the 10% off via app.discount you can get it down to $108.80 + $3.99 shipping. A couple dollars more but no rebate hassles. Some we're saying Zotac has the superior cooling solution to other brands on another thread.

That's great, but the point of this thread was for low-profile systems. NewEgg also charges tax, so that kills it for me either way.
