More about will work
  1. Yes, it would work.The card under consideration is about 7 cm wide while your chassis is 10 cm wide.
  2. Quote:
    Which mobo your system is using?Download cpuz and post the screenshot of the mainboard tab here.Or give us the complete model no. of your system.

  4. BUT WHY? what are you trying to achieve by getting this card? if its for games, then forget about it, that card is not up to it.

    You were asked for CPUz, that's GPUz.
  6. Best answer
    Only if it is low profile or it won't fit in your case due to it's height but beyond that only thermals and common driver problems will be the only thing you will have to live with.
