Would this graphics card work with this system HD 6850??


500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue 3.5" Hard Disk Drive
4GB Corsair XMS3 1333MHz DDR3 Dual Channel Memory Kit
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.8GHz Hexa Core Processor
OCZ StealthXstream II 500W Power Supply
Gigabyte GA-MA78LMT-US2HAM3 AM3 Motherboard
Sony DDU-1681S DVD-ROM Drive 18x SATA Internal

Is the psu large enough for the card or is it risky? Does the motherboard have the required one X16 lane graphics slot available?

I have no idea what any of this means and am in need of help, basically I want to know if it will work with my system ok (the graphics card) and if the graphics card is powerful enough to run dual monitor set up with the system?

They are the requirements for the graphics card

More about would graphics card work system 6850
  1. The PSU is fine. Any of these cards would be fine, in order of performance with TDPs :

    6850 (130W TDP)
    6870 (150W TDP)
    7850 (130W TDP)

    It really comes down to your budget but I suggest you at least get 6870. Sapphire is great by the way.
  2. Thanks for the reassurance, think I'll probably go with the 6870. But will the motherboard fit the system specs?
  3. Also what is TDP
