I have this pc currently http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I really want to upgrade to a Radeon Hd 6850/6870, but I'm not sure if the card is compatible with the AMD 780g motherboard the computer has, or if the card will even fit, as I know graphics cards are getting larger and larger. I want to run games in as high a setting as possible, and I've seen these cards in action on friend's pcs, so thats why I picked them out. If theres another option that would be better, I'd like to know for sure. I've already swapped the psu out with a 600w psu, which I hope is fine. I'd really prefer to just upgrade this pc as I'm happy with everything else it has. Thanks for your time!

6850 and 6870 are compatible with your motherboard. Any PCIE video card is compatible with your motherboard.
