right now I have a ATI radeon HD 3400 series, and here's a few pictures:





Here are the ones I'm thinking about:
GeForce GTX 660 Ti:

More about choosing graphics scared case small
  1. What's the name of the case
  2. The best thing to do would be measure the length of your current card and then measure how much room is left in the space at the end (doesn't look like much) then add the two together. Then take your entire PC apart and clean every part in it, that is like a nightmare in there.
  3. That CPU will bottleneck the GPU big time. It really is time for an upgrade if you still have a dual core, otherwise you are more putting band aids on things and wasting money.
  4. what's the monitor resolution.............. and please, take the case outside, reverse the hose on the vacuum cleaner and blow all that dust out of your case............. MINGA.................
  5. Well dont go for GTX 460, HD6850 or HD6870. All of them are outdated series.

    Consider the GTX 660 (non TI) - i just wrote a review and its like a GTX 580. Powerful!

    If you wanna keep your current PSU, you should look for HD7770
  6. That's what RULERS are for.
  7. I'll probably do the measuring, and I will be getting a new PSU.
