  1. yes. :) same slot.
  2. Best answer
    Yes you can install this GPU on your motherboard since your motherboard has an PCIe x16 slot running at x16.
    HD 7870 is one of the best gaming GPUs.
    you can play all the games till now at high settings with playable frame rates.
    Enjoy.
  3. in xfire?....... you do realize because 1 card has 1gig of memory and your performance will suffer because it will default to 1gig even though there are 3 present. ?
  4. Thank you ghost_hv this helped i saw the x16 slot but didn't really understand what that meant, like i said i wanna get rid of this onboard graphics as i heard it wasnt that good and i wanna get the XFX amd radeon 7870 so i can play bf4 on ultra :D thanx for the help dude super bro fists! :D
  5. no no xfire :D

    you're welcome :)
    just make sure that you've installed atleast 8GB of ram because this GPU needs 8 Gigs of ram to perform at its best.
  7. Actually 4GB of ram is good enough.!
    Sorry that i told you to buy 8GB ram.
    which PSU do you have ?

    i dont know if this is anygood, not that good with detailing gaming with all these psu's gpu's graphics cards lol but this is my system specs if this helps, AMD A8 6600K quad core processor running at 4.2ghz
    8GB DDR3 1600MHz ram!
    1TB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive
    and at the moment amd hd8570d graphics

    sorry lol i finally figured out what you meant hahah 500W Quiet Power Supply Featuring Large 120mm Cooling Fan
  11. I asked you for the PSU because if you've installed HD 7870 in your system then you'll need atleast 500W psu.
    more than that will be good.
