Heya, I was thinking of upgrading for Battlefield 3, in October and adding on an extra Radeon HD 6850 to my current one.
I will also need a new power supply either 650W or 700W.

The problem is I don't know if its gonna fit in my mid tower case, both the power supply and the graphics card.
The Mid tower case is a Cooler Master USP 100 which can be found here with all the details.

Will 2 Radeon HD 6850 fit in this mid tower case?
and what about the power supply?

Here are my PC specs just in case.

VIDEOCARD: Radeon HD 6850 2GB
RAM: 4GB
PSU: 550W
PROCESSOR: AMD Phenom x6 1055T



Thanks!

Kyle.

the video card doesnt even hang off of the motherboard, so your case should fit the two of them. i would certanly populate all fan mounts.
which 550w psu do you own? i really doubt it will be adequate regardless. the 6850 isnt much of a power hog, but 2x6850 and an X6 can pull a bit of juice at top load

I would first ask if your motherboard has two PCIe x16 slots. Then see if having the second 6850 would hit the PSU at all. I have a NZXT Lexa S case and your case has slightly bigger dimensions so I don't see a space issue.
