I would like to know if a gtx 660 will fit in my computer/motherboard/case etc
I have a hp pavilion p6-2012pt http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAG... and my motherboard is a H-CUPERTINO2-H61-uA TX.
The weakest link in the pc is the graphics card (GeForce gt530) which I want to upgrade, i talked to a friend about this and he recommended to me the GeForce gtx660 2gb graphical memory.
My pc has a pci 2.0 x16 slot, but i'm not sure about this since my knowledge about computers isn't high enough, so I hope you can help me out on this one.
P.S. I also would like to know if I will need any additional parts to pull this off
you need a power supply.............. but without seeing the internal layout of the case I couldn't tell you if you need a specific "fit" or if a "standard" one will fit...........also, without seeing the inside of the case I can only guess that the card will physically fit.
that's one of the pictures I found. you see the way that big metal strip comes down to the bottom of the case ( the hard drive cage ).......... a long card may not fit there......... I still can't make an estimation on that. how much room from the back of the case where the gpu hold down bracket is and that cage?
