Can I put a video card in this which would allow me to hookup 4 monitors for office purposes? Not for gaming.

Yes, but you may need a better power supply depending on which card you choose.

This has been discussed to death but here it goes. The issue with most of these servers (not just Dell) is that they have a minimal custom power supply. It doesn't leave much if any extra overhead for GPU. Last time I checked there were no other certified GPUs but if you kept it to one that used 25w ish it should work.

So the power supply could be swapped out then correct?

Not without a power supply adapter. The T30 does not use a 24 PIN standard power supply connector.

I know this is a continuation of the other deal thread for the T30, but can I assume I can move these parts into my current standard server chassis? I have a better power supply which should reach anything on the motherboard.

Thanks

75w can be drawn from the PCI-e on the motherboard. Just make sure the video card doesnt have a 6-pin or 8-pin connector and you will be fine.

The T30 has a 290w power supply.

Like Nvidia 1050 TI or lower...

I don't think that would be easy. Do a lot of research into that.

There are some older low profile video cards with 4 dvi outputs. Search ebay then search google for the tdp of that specific card. I believe it will work.

based on experience? How long have you been running with that? I ask because manual says motherboard provides 25 watts.

I don't have a card to test with but by pci-e spec a full length x16 slot has to support at least 66w. I know the other slots are not true x16 slots which is what I assume they are referring to since they are electrically x4 slots.

"×4 and wider cards are limited to 2.1 A at +12V (25 W) and 25 W combined."

"A full-sized ×16 graphics card may draw up to 5.5 A at +12V (66 W) and 75 W combined after initialization and software configuration as a "high power device"."


Disregard, I read the spec and there are provisions to artificially limit power to a slot via handshake and software.


Anyone care to comment if they have successfully put a graphics card into the server in the 1st PCI-e x16 slot?

With these servers it's not about how big the PSU is but what it provides to the GPU. As per Dell support it gives 25w.
