Got a new GTX480! Can I run it ???
Sep 30, 2010, 8:21 PM
GA-EP45-UD3P Gigabyte Motherboard
650 Watt Corsair PSU
Looks like the PSU is sufficient but it says it is dual slot video card does that mean I need 2 side by side open slots ? Or just enough room to take up to PCI slots (and still 1 connection?)
Will it work ? I won this in a contest.

One connection, two slots

It says "2 slots" because it physically takes up 2 slots worth of space inside your case. It only connects to one physical PCI-Express slot on the motherboard.
Your PSU should be OK.
