Most important information is wattage of your PSU. You might need to open your case for this.

The HD6670 is the best but you should rather go one better to get some more life out of it. HD7750 is a great card that runs on very little power.

I just bought this to run the 9800 Gt but that didn't go so well so I'm going to be using it for a AMD instead :

Holy cow that thing is massive, don't think it'll fit in my case!


Are you using a normal case or something from Acer or HP or any other type of case? Can you paste a photo. The card is standard length. It is just abit broad, but that is rarely an issue.
