Most of you will consider this a stupid question, but here it goes. I am building my first PC. I was wondering if a gtx 690 from evga would work.
Specs:
Asus rampage IV
Intel 3960x extreme
Thermaltake tough power tp-1500m 1500w
Please let me know if you need to know more.
Thanks for the help guys!

I don't see why it wouldn't work unless you pick a case that is too small for it to fit, but considering that all your other components are very high end, something tells me you won't pick the cheapest case.

I figured it would work. By the way I have a corsair 800D

gaming rig? dont bother with a x79 rig. z77 performs the same

and 690s are stupid if it costs almost 3x the cost of a 670 while performing less. and a 670 can max out almost all games at 1080p. if you are going high res or multi-monitor, get a 7970. if you are going 3d. just grab 2 670s and you should fly

800D is pretty useless if you are not going to fit a lot of hardware into the build, and for a gaming rig, there is very little hardware involved

Give us your budget and screen resolution and what your computer will be used for and we can provide a much better balanced machine.

yeah. the largest waste of money. the 3960x was probably the dumbest (given a 3930k performs exactly the same)

just get a gtx 670 from gigabyte.

Just saying, sticking to the topic would be cool. I am thankful for everyone's advice as to what parts I should have gotten, but I just wanted verification from a few people that it would work before I spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on a graphics card.

you could still make a right purchase by getting 2 gtx 670s
