Question about this upgrading the GPU on this pc!

Here is the link: http://www.walmart.com/ip/ZT-Systems-7645Mi-Desktop-PC-with-Intel-Core-i5-2320-Processor-16GB-Memory-2TB-Hard-Drive-and-Windows-7-Home-Premium-Monitor-Not-Included/1761596

I want to buy this pc for the intel core i5, 2tb HDD and also 16gb of ram for a great price, and good reviews.

The only question i have is: Will the case fit a SAPPHIRE 100314-3L Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card?

The dimensions of the case are: ((L x W x H): 16.9 x 7.1 x 13.9


THANKS!

  1. Oh the link is not bringing to the right page..Im sorry, if you want to see it, go to walmart.com and then electronics > Computers > Desktops, and under specifications search for $500-$750 and it should be within the first 5. I costs $648. ZT 7645.
  2. The link doesn't work ;-/

    Alright, I had a look. It's not a bad price, but it's kind of a weird configuration. What would you be using this computer for?

    It's a pretty small case, you'd probably want to go measure in the store.

    16 GB of memory is most likely way more than you'd need for several years. 8 is the safe bet these days.

    It only comes with a 350 Watt power supply. I seriously question whether it would power a 6870. So you very likely would have to upgrade the PSU also.

    It's almost NEVER cheaper to buy a pre-built system but to build one yourself. I'm certain you could put together your own with better components for the same price.
  3. Oh i forgot to tell you that, i will be upgrading the PSU as well as the gpu, i put together an amazing setup today for almost the same price, maybe a little less actually but (im 15) my dad wont let me build it myself i told him it is easy to do, so he is trying to drive me away and to buy a prebuilt and upgrade that.

    I would use it for school and gaming.
