Hello
This is my first question in this site.

I am upgrading my GFX card. My existing card is HD 5670 1 GB, After a lot of searching i came up with these two GTX 285 and HD 5830. First i was thinking
to buy GTX 285 Obliviously its faster then 5830 that's why, then i found out its not DX11 enabled also heats up a lot. Then i removed this card from my wish list now left HD 5830, Now this card has DX 11 and performance is almost same as GTX 285 according to reviews and benchmarks. Now the issue is it is very long in length. Will this card fits in my motherboard, just look at this image of my motherboard http://s16.postimage.org/lijwq4gd1/Intel_DH55_TC_top.jp... as you can see just in front of PCIe x16 slot sata ports are there and other bunch of stuff. 5 out of 6 sata ports are in used (HDD and DVD drive). Also i have corsair cx600 v2 smps/psu. Is this sufficient to power this card???


Thank you

It will fit and the PSU is enough, the SATA problem can be solved with a right angle SATA cable.
