Will my upgrade work? -AMD GPU

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guy, I currently have a Dell XPS 8700.
I'm running a EVGA 600B power supply in it instead of the original power supply because at the time I purchased a GTX 970 and needed more power.

My question is, coming June 29th, I'd like to purchase a RX 480 and put it in my system, but I was wondering if it would be compatible or not. I remember when I bought my 970 I had to return it because the A10 bios still wasn't out for the motherboard in this system and it was compatible about a month later.
If I could get any help I would appreciate it.
I plan to run a rx 480 for about a year and then switch out the motherboard for a better one and run crossfire 480s. (obviously get a new psu, etc.)

Thanks.

I would say Yes. With the bios update that allowed the 970 i would assume it would allow any other card just fine at this point. i dont know what the update updated specifically but if the 970 works i think it would work fine, if you are unsure try sending a email to dell support? i would assume they would have all that info. Hope this helps a bit.
