Im a new builder and have been building my first build the last few days. It's all complete except for a video card which I am ordering today. I have been planning on buying the Sapphire Radeon HD 7970. This computer is going to be for primarily gaming and I have been hearing a lot of good things about the GTX 680 for gaming and it's $50 cheaper than the 7970.

My question is my build I picked out and "confirmed compatibility" with you guys was with the 7970. So can I use the GTX 680 instead if I so decide? Or is there any compatibility issues for video cards? Just want to make sure if I decide to go for the GTX 680 today that is actually is compatible with my system.

Here are my specs:

Thanks in advance

THanks for the reply. From what I have read I now want to go with the 680. So I should be ok with everything I have? I don't need any special connectors or anything right? Should install and all the same as the 7970?

I'm ordering in a few hours and it's my last part so I just wanted to make sure it would work :)

Should just plug right in..Then all you have to do is install the NVidia drivers from the Nvidia website, and you are good to go! :D
