First, let me admit up front I'm still learning, so if this is a stupid or obvious question, dont laugh too loudly
For the computer a friend is helping me put together, I'd like the Radeon 6850, but I need to make sure it's going to fit with the motherboard and power supply I was planning on getting or find different ones that will.
2.1x16 is backwards compatible with 2.0x16, so dont worry. Actually a upgrade. 6850 sips power, so a single card could make it with a 450 watt PSU pretty easily. Thats 500. However a pretty pathetic 500 at that. Will it work? Yeah, but i wouldnt trust a PSU like that. If you havent already bought it, dont, if you have, it will work.
