  1. Hi :)

    Probably but why would you buy an OLD card like that ?

    All the best Brett :)
  2. It's better than the original Intel HD Graphics. my other choice was Twin Frozr 7870 but requires 3.0 PCI whilst mine is 2.0.any recommendations for a budget but good one?

    Hi :)

    ANY 3.0 card WILL work in 2.0 ... get the 7870...miles better...

    All the best Brett :)
  4. You're silly to settle down for an older card xD it's okay but not as good as the 7870! Jump for it :D
  5. Really? Thanks Brett :)
  6. Didn't Know that. i'll settle with 7870 :) thanks for the heads up

    Hi :)

    Yes, even my card would work in 2.0 (they are ALL backwardly compatible ) and mine is a 7990 6gb ... the best there is.... and the most expensive lol

    All the best Brett :)

    Hi :)

    You may have several problems with size there...

    The graphics card and the psu may be too big... time to get out a tape measure and measure very carefully...

    All the best Brett :)
