Thinking of buying a GTX275 to replace a 7600GS but the motherboard (Asus P5E VM HDMI) has a crap layout and that the second half of the card will either sit on top of the SATA connectors (that's if the PCI-X connector is on the right of the card as you look down) or obscure the slot that I have an Asus Xonar in (if the connector is on the left of the card as you look down).
Anyone know of a motherboard compatibility-type list for the cards that will help me identify how well it will fit before I go ahead and buy it?
Better still, has anyone fitted one? What problems did you have?!
Well I think it is, but I may be alittle biased as I have a HD5850, If your not bothered about DX11 then a HD4890 is cheaper than a GTX275 and performs about the same. Or if you can spend alittle more you can pick up a HD5850 which performs slightly better than a GTX285.
I did the flip to nVidia a while ago and haven't seen a reason to flip back --- (I make it sound like I'm making pancakes). Availability is the arse on EVERYTHING at the moment. Not impressed... And yeh do want DX11 but being cautious (as I suppose most ppl are) re: Fermi. But then it's still gonna be £300 either way... I just want to get rid of this crappy 7600GT...!!!!
