My native resolution of my monitor is 1920x1080 but I don't realy mind what the resolution is in games, I play games like Resident evil 5, Call of Duty Black ops, Mafia II, and Crysis if that helps

Both card will probably fit into your case . The AMD card is 9.5" (inches) and the Nvidia card is only 8.25" (inches). I'd be concerned about air flow in that case though.

if you don't over heat anything then your case is fine.

^thanks for the reply! I figured I would have much of a problem with this upgrade as long as I monitor the temps and see if there fine with the HP case. What do you guys think would be the best power supply for my case and the HD 6850?
