Here is the parts: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
And: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The computer i will be using these parts in is a dell studio xps 7100.
CPU:amd phenom 2 x 6 1075t
GPU:ati radeon hd 5870 1GB
ram: 8GB ddr3 1333 Mhz
PSU: 460W dell studio xps 7100 power supply

It looks to me like they will work but i was not sure about the pci version and i wanted a second opinion.

I'm skeptical about that PSU, it may not be strong enough to handle.

I was right, it needs at least a 500 PSU. http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt... I'm not sure how good DELL PSU's are but i'm going to guess, they didn't make them for gaming with good GPU.s The PCI version you have is 2.0 , but the 3.0 thing on cards are just a gimmick and you wouldn't notice any difference on a 3.0 PCIE board.

Thanks for the quick reply.
So the psu in the link might not put out enough power for it then what about this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
