Will My Graphics Card Fit?

Hi,
I have a Asus hd 6570 graphics card and I want to upgrade it to Asus hd 7870 to play battlefield 4 but I don't know if it will fit in my case.
Here's what I have:
Case: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5520044&CatId=1509

the case name is: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Mid Tower Case - ATX, Micro ATX, 120mm LED Fan, 4x 5.25 Bays, 5x 3.5 Bays

Motherboard: GA-M68MT-S2P
Processor: Intel Phenom II x4 955

Thanks!

    I link ok.

    I see no reason why a 7870 will not fit the case.
    You will need a 500w psu.
  4. the case name is: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Mid Tower Case - ATX, Micro ATX, 120mm LED Fan, 4x 5.25 Bays, 5x 3.5 Bays


    and the PSU i believe is 500W
  5. will a 7870 fit the motherboard i have? I have the GA-M68MT-S2P motherboard very small

    Every modern motherboard, even ITX will have at least a pcie X16 slot which is what you need.
    You are ok.

    The make and model would be helpful. A low quality 500w PSU may not power the card while a high quality unit wouldn't have a problem. A low quality unit may even damage other components when put under a load, you could be playing BF4, hear a pop, release the magic smoke and fry the whole system.
  8. ok thanks! also, is there a difference between Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 OC and ASUS HD 7870? Which one is better?
  9. Best answer
    There is little difference other that what vendor will support the card.
    You might assume that a OC card will have a factory overclock, and bi a bit stronger.
  10. thank you!
