For my old HP A6230n with the integrated Nvidia 6150n card(yuck) I installed a new power supply...Antec High Current Gamer 620 watt. (more than I presently need) Was on sale for the same price as the 520 so I took it. When I finaly buy a total new system I can transfer it to the new machine...But for now.... I want to plug in a Nvidia GTS450. It takes a 2.0 PCI Express and mine is just the old PCI 16 Express version so I wont get full performance out of it. My question though is...Will it physically fit in my tower? I know I can go home and check dimensions and I will probably HAVE to do that. Was planning on getting the card on the way home though :-)~
I thought I would be lazy and ask if anyone has already tried it.
I've been reading a bit and will eventualy build a new rig via NEWEGG or something like that. Sounds like fun and I get what I want...That's later though....
Nvidia cards are small. They should fit. Also, I'd much rather go with a radeon hd 6770 or a 6790 and they will both offer better, cleaner performance.
