Hey again, I'm in the UK and I'm looking at the GTS 450 and I wonder how many slots it will take in my motherboard. Also, does it require a 6 pin connector from the power supply?

GTS 450:

Since my case is a Mini Tower, will it also fit because I'm not sure of the size of the GTS 450.

It looks like either of those cards would take 2 slots up (PCI Express and the one directly below)
Secondly it should require a 6 pin power connector. If your power supply doesn't have that, you could order a "2x4 pin to 6 pin" adapter like this:

(dont know anything about this website, just reference the image)

Third, yes it should fit in your case just fine. Its not a very long card from the looks of it

Why would the Gigabyte one take 2 slots when the Asus would only take 1 slot?

Do you have the power supply for this?

No, but I am planning to also get a new one. It's an OCZ 500w CorexStream.

Also what is better? That ASUS GTS 450 or a Sapphire Radeon 6670 1GB GDDR5?

Will any of those cards run good at 1920x1080 resolution?
