Thanks for our reply .
The BIOS version is SMBIOS 3.0 .
I don't view the motherboard card into the specification system .
MSI support told me isn't possible because is a VGA card with a 6-pins connector
and the graphic card now has 8-pin .
It's real or not because I have view other model same as a Trident serie 3 with another
graphic card more powerfull .

You have to open the PC's case to find the motherboard version. I think its at the front right side of the board. As for the 6 pin connector, you can buy a 6 pin to 8 pin converter cable. If you don't have a version 2.1 motherboard then you will be limited to a gtx1660 6gb I think. This it because you cannot use a 330watt psu on the other motherboard.

I have thinking to upgrade with that model
ASUS GeForce RTX 3060 Ti DUAL 8G MINI V2 GAMING
Because the desktop is a 4.3 Litre and our graphic card suggestion is a model
with a dimension not compatible with that desktop model .
The SMBIOS version is 3.0 and the motherboard card is MS-B9061 version 2.0

The best choice is to try with another model with a same dimension and connector .
Is a mini model but isn't easy to find .

Yes this is the one I have but you can only use it if you have the 2.1 motherboard with A20 bios and a 330watt PSU. If you have the v1.0 motherboard with 520 bios then it won't work. The RTX2060's TDP is too high for the 220w PSU.

I have to open the desktop because you told me the bios serie number but I don´t view that specification on the system information .
I have told you the SMBIOS version is 3.0 .
and the PSU is 300 watt but i’m not sure because isn’t written on the PSU material adaptator

I send to you another model .
I think it's also compatible with that desktop model but I don't know if I have to
change the power supply .
The power supply is 650 W for that GPU model and the trident 3 power supply
is less powerfull so I have to change also the power supply but if it's not incompatible
with the other desktop element .
