Really need a little advice- PC is: HP e9120y/AMD Phenom II X4 910, 8 GB ddr3 (pc3-10600MB/sec)- but sitting on a 300 watt power supply and 4350-- Question is this: better power supply and 6850? or 6870? or just stick with a 5770 or 5570?? WOW addict, want to know what will work for CATACLYSM? looking at the power requirements on 68xx is lower, have only one PCIe x16 slot - so no crossfire in the future, mobo won't hack that... Thank you!! (Looking at Black Friday for the upgrades...)
Just opened the case, again... :-) The area for the PSU (btw it is a 'Liteon"- prolly made for HP-300watt, too small for advanced graphics cards) is somewhat small, but I can cut any little sheetmetal projections... damn, forgot to take a tape measure to it...
I really like the 460 size, specs- especially the MSI 1GB Cyclone-- have room for a looong card- but widthwise there is a good sized heat sink on the mobo near the back of the card GTX460 size)- has about a "can" (capacitor?) space to video card board... dont think a plastic covered 6870 would fit-- unless I can remove some plastic... so it may be the gtx460 come Cyber Monday + a psu.
Thanks to all of u! : Purple stank- how do I find combos at newegg?/ not havin much luck finding the 768mb and 550 watt Corsair-- all the specs that I have been able to find look like the 768 is about as good as the 1GB- wonder if the 256 width necessary for WOW CATACLYSM??
Is that all you play,WoW? I don't think you need anything bigger(faster*) than a 5770, could run WoW fine.But their are great deals going on now,just post your size demensions of your card bay and your PSU.
