RTX 5000 in a Alienware 18 R1 (2014)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I had bought an Alienware 18 with the intent of upgrading the system to accommodate a rtx gpu and a 8tb nvme ssd. I had seen a post where someone had allegedly installed an rtx 5000 into one of the machines two mxm slots. However I am wondering if going this route would be optimal or if I should entertain the idea of getting a different rtx gpu? Question for those running rtx cards at the moment, is the cpu bottleneck overly apparent when running modern titles? Ideally I would like to upgrade my machine with a rtx card that has over 8gb in vram that is capable of running the new dead space remake at a steady framerate of at least 60fps ultra at 1080p. Thank you(:

I run RTX 3000 perfectly fine. RTX 5000 will show cpu bottlenecks but it’ll still be way faster than any other card below it.
