Hi :) 

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

All the best Brett :)

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...

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

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 :)
