Hey guys, i bought a pre-built pc afew months ago (an advent dt1308) and I wanna upgrade the graphics card to a geforce gtx 560 or something along those lines. The graphics card the motherboard has in it the moment is single slot (its a gt 530) so i was wondering if a dual slot graphics card would fit in it?

P.S the motherboard i have is a ms-7728
P.S P.S If you haven't already guessed im a complete noob with this sort of thing so sorry if the answer is extremely obvious:D !

Assuming the dual-slot pcb won't block any important connections, yes. The only difference between a single slot and dual slot card is their size. Just make sure your SATA ports or USB headers won't be blocked and you should be good to go.

Now, the real question you should be asking is if your psu can handle it.

Hi i was just wondering if this graphics card(XFX HD-685X-ZCFC Radeon HD 6850) will fit into this motherboard(GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P AMD 760), and also how can you know which side the dual slot will go on. I'm also a nooob
