    I've got a few TS140's. If you want to put a gaming GFX card in it, you'll need to replace the Lenovo power supply as it doesn't have additional connectors to power the card. You'll also need an additional adapter to convert the standard power supply to board connector - see post below.

    Cheers Bill, it's starting to come together, I will post up an inventory here of what I need, then see if there is anything I have missed.

    quick question what is better, a USB wifi dongle eg - Netgear AC1200 High Gain Wifi USB Adapter | Ebuyer.com

    or a wifi card eg - https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-PCE-N1.../dp/B0053GR2YI

    So latency is no longer an issue, that's good.

    The local old folks home rang and asked for their cantankerous old fart back. Shall I tell them you're on your way?

    So found a decent GPU but I need to upgrade the PSU, never done this before, given that I plan to get a GTX1060 4GB nVidia what PSU would be compatible with that?

    I did use google but there were lots of differing opinions - bit like this place!

    Your best bet is posting on the ThinkServer section of Lenovo's forum. Surprisingly still very active for TS140 tinkering.
