Will a 7750 fit inside Foxconn 2ABF?
I'm worried because the RAM slot might obstruct the card...
Thanks.

Couldn't find much info on that MB but the pictures I found showed no conflict. Are you sure that's the correct Foxconn model number?

Looks a little tight but I think it will fit. PCIe graphics cards are usually flush on the top where the RAM slots are and stick down to cover up some of the other slots. That way the RAM fits and the card fits. Yes, either one of those will fit. Another question is your PSU powerful enough to support those cards? It says 300W. It may work, I found this page about total system power usage for those cards:

Thanks a lot
I'm thinking of getting this PSU: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007SU2QRK/ref=ox_sc...

I hope it fits in...

Will the 7770 sit on top of the slot tabs so if I want to take my RAM out, I need to take the graphics card out?
Sorry for the stupid questions, I'm not very good with hardware

It might be so close you will have to take the card out to access the ram. You'll just have to set it up and find out. Do you plan to upgrade ram soon?

No not really.
I'll be staying with this computer for a while until I build a new system.
I guess I'll just have to try it out anyway and then possibly return it if I can...
Thanks for the advice and I'll let you know if it works or not

I'm 99% sure it will work. You won't have any trouble...

Oh yeah I've watched a video of a YouTube'r installing a graphics card to a mobo similar to mine where ram slot is lined up with the pci-e slot perpendicularly. Yeah just like you said, it's going to be a tight squeeze but it's going to definitely going to work.
Thanks for the advice and now I'm certain that I'm going to get a 7770. Thanks again!
