I plan on buying a new power supply and GPU for a computer i bought at a store a few months ago. It has a core i5 3230 processor, 16gb of ram.

I plan on buying this GPU; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And this Power supply; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What i want to know, and if somebody could explain this i would be very greatful!

I want to make sure everything will work with the computer, its a full size case so nothing is worrysome there, except for the fact that the PSU is mounted at the top - Could i do the same for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And is that the best options for the price? I like the fact that this GPU is already overclocked, because i don't know what/how to do that on my own.


Thanks

all of them will work perfectly :) 
you have good PSU and good gfx choice. maybe people will suggest you to go to AMD. but your choice is already fine :)

Which exact computer do you have? Just to make sure it will fit the case, etc.

Its this, but i got it for a steal with 2TB hd, 16gb ram, i5 processor, then they decided to downgrade it because it was such a good deal!

But it seems pretty standard for the tower size. I can open it up if youd like to know, ill probably do that anyways


I wanna be able to buy the stuff, install it without any problems and i hope it works^^

Am I missing a link? Still not sure what it is going into.

I guess just make sure your case is standard size and has a full height PCIe slot and enough room for the length of the card.

If you have room for any extra fans, I'd install them.

Yeah, looks like that should work with what you want to buy. It looks like there is a fan hole on the side of the case. If that doesn't already have a fan, put one there to keep your new graphics card cool.
