  1. Well I can't tell if it would fit in your computer if I have no idea what it is, wanna give us some info?
  2. A 4300\4500 card to a 6850 will knock your socks off :)

    Just make sure you have the power for it. AMD recommends a 500 watt power supply, but a good(not those 25$ 600 watt units that have less power then a 300 watt unit) quality 450 will do just fine if the system(with power to spare) is not overclocked to the moon.

    As for size, It will depend on your case. The 4300 cards are in fact quite small. It is about the same size as a 5770 and those fit into many cases.

    What computer(more so what case) are you running?

    i have no idead what a 'case' is im a total noob :P

    My dad might know since he is the one who got the computer for me,

    when i get the information i'll tell you and plz help me :P

    tnx :)
  4. Just post here when you get the info and an alert will show up next time I am on the forums.

    Get as much info as you can on the system.

    6850's are about 8.5-9.25 and as long as 10(would be some kind of monster) inches long. This variation is because of different coolers and custom boards.
  5. Take a picture and put it on here

    actually im trying to get gtx 560,

    my friends told me it was better..

    would it still work?

    Thanks again for helping me right now

    ill get info next time :)
  7. The 560 is better, but so is the 6870. I'd go for whichever is cheaper.

    What kind of computer do you have? HP? Dell?

    my dad doesnt know for some reason,

    is there another way to see what my Case is?

    or do i hav to open up my computer?
  9. It may have a label on it.

    Opening it and taking a picture would be even better for the most part.
  10. Yea, just take a picture of it or there might just be a label on it.

    i used a program call CPU-Z and got some info..

    Motherboard

    Manufacturer AsusTek Computer INC.

    Model : M4N68T-M-V2

    idk how to post the picture here,,,

    if u need anything else ill try checking it here.

    and im planning to get this one

    thanks :D
  12. The thing is I'm not sure your power supply will support it.
  13. can you post a screenshot of the cpu-z as well as try to open up the case and check the power supply which is the thing the power connector is attached to.

    If you don't have sufficient power, it may damage your gpu or it might just not run.

    thank you guys for helping me.
  15. yes you can change power supply, considering the things about your computer, you probably need a new one for a 6850. You'd want a decent 400w or higher for a 6850 imo.

    click this and tell me if it works or not....
  19. nope
  20. your computer should have no problem with a 6850 provided your power supply can handle the card. Thats a bit hard to say without you opening the case and looking at the power supply.

    You'd probably need a new one if your pc was pre built.

    Thanks for the help!

    ill try opening the case tomorrow,

    i dont think its prebuilt because i couldnt find company logo anywhere on the case

    ill see tomorrow :)


  22. Here's where the power supply would be. Sometimes it is also on the bottom of the case.

    The label on the side should provide sufficient information.
