It will have a lot more to do with your case size and layout, and how much power your PSU produces (check the label on the side of the PSU, look for +12V)

Im currently using a nVidia GeForce 9600GT and i bought a GainWard GTX260

Im using a GigaByte GA-73-PVM-S2H motherboard
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit

The Card gets power when i turn my machine on but the fans start and stop 3-5 times then spin like normal but nothing is displayed on my screen unless i plug my monitor into my on-board

When i try to install the drivers the disk tells me that "it could not find the correct device" or something similar

I downloaded the drivers from the website, Installed, rebooted but had the same problem



Is my new card faulty or is it a compatibility issue with my motherboard ... but im sure ive read about other people using this Mobo + Card

Answer :
PLease make sure you have both PCI-E power connectors plugged into the back of the card.

Caps are generally low enough to go underneath the card when installed, and from the pictures it looks like your board is no exception. With some board layouts you may obstruct other features (sata ports are the most common one), but I've yet to see one that blocked a slot completely.

So I'll have to refer you back to my original post. The board should not obstruct the card, but your case size and design may limit its size, as well the output of your power supply. We'll also need to know a price range you're looking at.
