Since I am still new to building custom computers I used a calculator and did some research, most sites are saying that the 670 would have a power draw slightly less than that of the 560 - even under load. Does that seem correct? Would there be any problems with the power supply if I used this card?
Also, I am not very familiar with component standards: Would a PCI 3.0 card such as the 670 work correctly in the 2.0 slots that my motherboard has? My own research seemed to indicate that even 3.0 cards would not max out the capacity of a 2.0 slot. Could there/ would there be any other problems with this upgrade?
(And of course the Phantom case has plenty of room for the card to breathe)
(Running Windows 7 64-Bit)
Thank you for any and all answers and advice, it is all greatly appreciated.
P.S. If there are any issues or complications please specify, I'm attempting to learn about computers as well as build one, again thank you
