Solved Looking for upgrade options Tags: Nvidia Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: May 23, 2011 11:34 PM in Graphics & Displays Share DJRWolf May 22, 2011 9:54:41 PM I am looking to upgrade my current 9600 to a higher end video card but I can't use a double-wide card because I am using both of the PCIe X1 slots on ether side of the X16 slot. Any suggestions for a single-wide Nvidia card?

Oh I also found this 470 but its a water cooled design... still single slot but you might need to upgrade your cooling solution http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... | Report abuse Best solution jyjjy Nvidia Authority Graphics card Master May 23, 2011 6:33:11 AM More expensive than it's worth imo; http://www.provantage.com/galaxy-technology-60xgh6dp4bx...

X16 slots can be used for X4 and X1 cards. | Report abuse DJRWolf May 23, 2011 6:18:23 PM Ok, the whole reason why I put this thread in the Nvidia section of the forums is because I do NOT want an ATI card. Please stop posting links to ATI cards!!! Now that Galaxy 460 and MSI 450 cards could work. Thanks. Also, my motherboard is a Biostar A770 that has only 1 PCIe X16 slot so I can't move one of the x1's to an x16 slot as there is only one of them. | Report abuse DJRWolf May 23, 2011 11:34:26 PM Best answer selected by DJRWolf. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Looking for upgrade options> Related ressources: ForumLooking at upgrade options for friends PC ForumLooking for advice on upgrade options .
