My old GTX 8800 GTS died recently, and I've been running on board graphics since. I've decided that I need my games so I've decided to buy a new card. The GTX 660 FTW Signature 2 looks good but I'm unsure of whether it is compatible with my old motherboard. Also, if I upgrade other components in the future, will this card be up to standards?
Another concern is I have an old Gigabyte GZ-X8 case (I am in need of an upgrade with just about everything) and it appears that the rearr I/O ports are just too small to fit the card. But this concern may just be silly.
Well, your motherboard will support the card just fine, though you would probably benefit from a more recent processor, but that can wait till a future upgrade. What PSU do you have and how much power does it make, you want to make sure you can power the card first. I think your case will work fine, GPU's are standard additions and Gigabyte knows what they're doing, I doubt it won't fit, if need be you can tamper with the case a bit.
