I've looked around for quite a while now and found a few topics about my question, but all with different answer. So I have a Dell XPS 630i, which used to have two GeForce 9800gt in SLI. One died. Now I've been running with only one card for over a year and it was running pretty smooth, but newer games are starting to get a little laggy. So I purchased this card : http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... I'm waiting for it through the mail, but I'm unsure about something. I've read that my computer, the 630i model has two PCIe x16 slot, which I believe this card will fit in, but the slots are wired with x8 cables or something like that. My question is : Will this card fit in my computer ? If yes, will it run correctly ? I have 750w PSU and as I said, used to run 2x GeForce 9800gt Also, is the x8 / x16 thing something I should worry about ? Is this going to affect the video card capacity ? Thanks in advance for your answer, and I hope my question is clear enough, if not, just ask... Thanks. More about : dell xps 630i x16 Kirouac August 4, 2011 4:06:21 PM Anyone ?
