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...

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!

Should fit in the case the big question would be can your PSU run it? Whats the make and model of the PSU?

I link ok.

I see no reason why a 7870 will not fit the case.
You will need a 500w psu.

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.

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.
