Go for it if you can afford it. m 0 l seanvs July 17, 2012 1:51:49 AM But since it has two fans will I have to get a full atx mobo or a full tower? Right now I'm planning to buy a micro atx mobo and a mid tower m 0 l Related resources Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 vs Sparkle GTX 560 SE ? - Forum GTX 560SE vs HD 7770 - Forum N460GTX-SE vs Radeon HD7770 vs GeForce GTX 560 SE - Forum GTX 560 SE vs HD 7770 - Forum Nvidia GTX 560 SE VS Radeon HD 7770 - Forum Can't find your answer ?

But you never mentioned what case you have. Say an antec300 will fit it fine. m 0 l raytseng a b U Graphics card July 17, 2012 2:03:01 AM i would base my purchase on noise, since that is something important to me. Techpowerup always takes a noise measurement: Based on that criteria, I would pick this card: Sapphire HD 7770 Vapor-X 1 GB http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Sapphire/HD_7770_Vap... As far as the performance chart, techpowerup says it's equal to 6850. If your rig is already a hairdryer, then there's no point though... m 0 l seanvs July 17, 2012 2:06:29 AM Supermuncher85 said:No you do not need a full atx board.

According to most benchmarks, the 6850 is one lvl above the 7770 in terms of performance m 0 l wiinippongamer a b U Graphics card July 17, 2012 2:09:21 AM It'll fit fine. m 0 l raytseng a b U Graphics card July 17, 2012 2:13:48 AM you can read into the techpowerup chart however you want, but each tier tends to be about 10%. That particular vapor-x card is a relatively recent overclocked model as the manufacturers tends to do, so maybe that makes up the percentage points to go up a tier. Again, if noise is not a criteria for you, then just pick whatever card is cheapest...according to techpowerup chart the 6870 is the best performance/dollar. m 0 l Supermuncher85 a b U Graphics card July 17, 2012 2:16:23 AM http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nzxt-gamma-rosewill... They used a GTX 285 which has a length of 10.5inches or 26.67cm. The 7770 is 22.5cm long so it will fit! m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
