But if I may ask, why would you want a GTX480 in that OEM Mobo/Case/PSU. Its gonna get pretty hot if the PSU runs it at all.

When you have a cramped small case with bad airflow, the GTX480 is going to overheat like crazy. You can get a Gelid Icy vision, but a new case would be a much better investment IMO.

Yes you can, you will have to go into BIOS and set SATA port to boot from but it can be any SATA connector.

Timop is also right, I wouldn't put a GTX480 in a small cramped case, granted I don't think it would be hard to mod to make better...

I have 5 HDD's and I couldn't tell you which one is the boot drive other than it's not SATA 0. Score 0 bartlock September 4, 2010 11:36:07 PM Well, right now i'm writing from the computer with the gtx 480, the main hard drive is connected to sata 2 without problems. @Timop The Cool Master power supply is the M700. But yes this case is small. Soon i will get a new case, mobo and i'm thimking an I7. but for now this will help me to edit some hi def video and finish a project that was just horrible to edit with a smaller video card.
