GPU Compatibility with PSU and ASUS Cm6850-07 Tags: Nvidia Asus Power Supplies Compatibility Graphics Product Last response: July 12, 2012 2:05 AM in Graphics & Displays Share whosrizo July 11, 2012 6:09:25 PM Hello, I am currently working with an ASUS CM6850-07 (http://www.asus.com/Desktop/Entertainment/Essentio_CM68...) and have decided it is time for a power supply and graphics upgrade so I will be able to play BF3 on ultra at 1080p. I have decided to go with a GTX570 by MSI and a ZEPHY580MX 580W power supply. Both found here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Since I am new with upgrades and this sort of thing, I was wondering if someone could help me make sure these parts are all compatible with my system and case, and are also compatible with each other.

Again, sorry for being a "noob" but for my first upgrade I want to make sure it all goes smoothly. m 0 l Related resources Upgrade GPU and PSU for Asus Essentio CM6850-07 - Forum Looking to buy an Asus Essentio cm6850-07 and upgrade the Graphics card and the - Forum ASUS CM6850-07 Memory Type - Forum Compatibility between MB, GPU and PSU - Forum ASUS motherboard ram and gpu compatibility problem - Forum Can't find your answer ?
