That 7770 heatsink looks to go over 1 slot. Radeon 7750 looks to be pretty narrow. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-2.html
Trave said:scratch my question,whats the best gpu for optiplex 780(see my specs in my profile)
Welcome back, long time no see.
First of all, your profile is empty, except for your location.
Also, since we can not check your old posts, you have to tell us your main specs
1. Optiplex 780, thank you, but which form factor, choose the most appropriate from below
2. Have you upgraded your PSU (power supply). Can you remind us the wattage - open side panel and check the label.
3. It is good to know CPU (processor) and RAM, just in case.
4. Now about GPU (video card).
THIS POST APPLICABLE TO MT (MINI TOWER) FORM FACTOR ONLY.
Unfortunately no card that is more than 7.5 inches long or 2 slots wide will PHYSICALLY FIT inside the case - it was found that only single bracket video card can fit due to BTX MOBO, where card internals facing upward towards PC internals, not ATX, where dual card design is blocking another PCI slot by facing downward.
If you prefer the card with beefier fan, then the length of the card must not exceed 7.5 inches, otherwise only "skinny" single bracket, single slot cards can physically fit.
Pictures below will prove my point.
View shows no room for dual bracket
Single bracket only, or you have to cut dual bracket in half
Here you can clearly see only single place for the bracket
7.5 inches explained, also shown "obstacles"
This is the picture of actual "skinny" single slot video card (not sure which model)- perfect, "glove" fit.
So, I found (USA retailers, Worldwide will be more choices) 2 GDDR5 7750 cards and one DDR3 4GB (GDDR5 is better than GDDR3, even if GDD3 offers 2 GB RAM or more), which confirmed in reviews to fit Optiplex gx620, 745 and 755 cases (the difference between those models are different processors).
Skinny, flimsier in terms of construction, completely single slot XFX 7750 http://www.amazon.com/XFX-DisplayPort-PCI-Express-FX775AZNP4-FX-775A-ZNP4/dp/B007Z3T5JC
A bit beefier cooler, not as skinny, more durable in construction PowerColor AX7750 http://www.amazon.com/PowerColor-AX7750-1GBD5-DH-Video-Graphics/dp/B00775OC28/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1362783129&sr=8-1&keywords=AX7750+1GBD5-DH
If you need Video card for working with high resolutions, BUT NOT FOR GAMING, PowerColor AX7750 4GBK3-H Radeon HD 7750 4GB is DDR3 card with huge 4GB memory, but is is not as fast as DDR5 and loosing in games http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131486&Tpk=7750&IsVirtualParent=1
Here is review of this card http://news.softpedia.com/news/PowerColor-Launches-Single-Slot-Radeon-HD-7750-4-GB-Video-Card-292712.shtml so this one is not for gamers!
So far I found only 2 7770 video cards which will fit inside - PowerColor AX7770 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131477
HIS H777FN1G Radeon HD 7770 very tight fit, almost touching heatsink http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161433
Following card is already out of production, so if you can find it on Craig list or eBay, it is only way, also I seen it on Amazon for a high price http://www.amazon.com/Sparkle-SX650TI1024KD-SPARKLESX650TI1024KD--Grafikkarten/dp/B009ZC3MHM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1371676541&sr=8-1&keywords=SX650TI1024KD
From NVIDIA I see SPARKLE 700025 (SX650TI1024KD) GeForce GTX 650 Ti http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814187200
7750 cards do not require power supply upgrade, 650 TI and 7770 are.
There are so many options available here so I would just recommend one of the good one CORSAIR CX500M (modular), which has just enough power http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139050 Also, with modular you can get rid of extra cables, believe me there are a lot of them.
You need 500 watt at least, stronger is better depending on your money.
However first of all I would like to add comment on PSUs, please check this list for choosing PSU to prevent doorstep creation or even worse - fire in your house!
When choosing PSU follow this guide http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx
And finally the ultimate skinny, single slot GPU
Please note, I was not able to find any stronger card to fit in Optiplex Mini Tower case, however there is one possibility, but it is damn expensive and only crazy enthusiasts can consider it AFOX 7850 http://www.afox-corp.com/en/products_details.asp?proid=209 and specs http://www.gpuzoo.com/GPU-AFOX/Radeon_HD_7850_Low_Profile_-_AF7850-2048D5L1.html and purchasing site http://afoxbuy1.jimdo.com/products/low-profile-graphics-card/amd-radeon-hd7850/
The problem with above card - I can not find physical dimensions of the card, especially the lenght, so I would be very careful here.
Again, above explanation is applicable to Mini Tower only!
Anything else I can help you with?
Trave said:so i could get 7750 without upgrading my psu from 305 to 500?well if I change my psu with the 500 one whats the best gpu i can get in my optiplex 780 mini tower,i guess its 7770 right?
You right. For 100% fit - 7770.
However there is possibility of AFOX 7850 to fit as well, just a possibility - this card will beat the rest including 7770.
