Size compatability between motherboard and gfx card
Hello, I'm planning on buying a saphire radeon 6850 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102908) and I wanted to know if it will fit with the size of my motherboard. (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01916920&cc=us&dlc=zh-hant&lc=en&product=4081965#N77). It seems like it will barely if even be able to fit.
Your links do not work for me.
If your motherboard has a pcie-X16 slot, then any graphics card that uses a pci-e X16 slot(most do) will fit.
What might not fit is the physical dimensions if you have a compact case or a slim case. Get the dimensions of your prospective card and measure the space in your case.
The other concern is the power supply. A 6850 needs a 450w psu with a 6 pin pci-e auxiliary power connector
