Asus M2N68-LA motherboard installing a HD 4890

I have an Asus M2N68-LA motherboard that came in my HP a6000 Pavilion Desktop. I upgraded my Graphics card to a ATI X1650 Pro a while ago but want more. I was wondering if the HD 4890 will fit the board. I have room in the case, but i am not sure if the card will clear the heat sink and sata ports/cables... Anyone know?

Heres a picture :)

  1. Youll need an inch and 1/2+ between the heatsink and you ram slots

    So i guess it will not fit then???.....
  3. If youve measured it and found it wasnt wide enough?
  4. Yea, it only has like .5". Looks like it won't fit, and it might be time to get a new mobo/CPU base... What do you think of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131599 as a platform?
  5. Looks good, just remember that placing your ram first is the way to go, so the ram clips dont interfere with the gfx card
    PS Make sure your mobo standoffs/mounts are located in the same spots, not sure how HP does theirs
  6. I thought Micro ATX mobo's were generic in build and mounting holes....
  7. Final reply: I did get a 4890 to fit in this board, i had to get some 270 degree angle for the sata connecters (like 5 bucks) and upgrade the PSU but it works like a beast now !!!!!!

    Good to hear.
    A lil elbow works goes a long ways, and OEMs dont use that, they use ease of build/costs onyl first
