I have a P5Q asus motherboard, im planning to buy the HD 6670 saphire or msi i´m not sure yet. The space available on my motherboard is quite small. Will any of these gpu fit on my motherboard?
That is the E version, mines is the cheaper one. My case is ok for the card, mine mobo is this http://mb.yesky.com/imagelist/2008/167/1b529813etl1.jpg
im a little shorth with my psu, is a tr2 430w.
Im worried because of the south bride i think it is, i think the cooler of the card wont fit there.
I found where to buy the XFX, but its ddr3 and the msi and saphire are ddr5, kss207rc are you sure it will fit?, the cooler of the gpu is going to be above the southbridge ( i think its called that way), and it may be touching it or something.
I think yes as i see in the photo(this one http://jiaimge.free.fr/Asus%20P45%20Motherboards/Asus%2... ) the heatsink is low so you wont have a problem.The sapphire will definitely fit because the cooler goes as far back as the pci-e conection goes so you wont have a problem.You can also check how high the heatsinks goes on your motherboard,if it reases above the pci-e about a 1cm or 2cm you wont have any problem with the msi too but generally i think you wont have problem with any of those cards.
I haven't been able to find any 6670's with DDR5 memory.I was wondering why they would make a new card with DDR3 memory.
I would had gone with the single slot just because it's a certain fit and it can provide better airflow but the other card will work just as well.If you can find a DDR5 card then defnitly get that over a single slot DDR3 card.
