Video Card upgrade advice

Hello,
I am currently running a Gigabyte EX58-UD5 motherboard, with a Nvidia GeForce 460 SE video card, and I want to upgrade to a GeForce GTX 670, will it be possible without doing a motherboard upgrade?

  1. Thanks, I am running a Corsair 850w system since I am also running RAID 5.
  2. unless you plan on using more than 1 moni/3D or resolution higher than fullHD,
    allmost all games can be done with a GTX570HD with game settings maxed out incl AA/AF/FXAA and adapt. v-sync.

    i would rather invest in that AND a good PSU...

    You do know that hard drives use less than 10 watts each right? ;)

    Ct1615 is correct. Any single graphics card system will run fine with a 550w power supply. Your motherboard is just fine.
  4. You are good to go.

    Also with 850W PSU and that mobo you may upgrade even to gtx670 in SLI or add another gtx670 in a few years.

    I think you should consider buying another gtx460se instead of gtx670 IF and only you want to save money. But this configuration would be much less upgrade-able in the future.
  5. Yeah I would love to, however, due to the mobo layout, the Perc 5 RAID card gets in the way (well the fan to keep it cool doesnt help either) of adding another video card. :( But this does help!
