February 20, 2013 9:28:12 AM

i just bought a ati hd 5770, for dirt cheap (30$ :p  , it's been awesome, running with solid fps on mid games like nfs HP2, crysis 2

questions :
1. graphic card is very huge for my case, as it's comming in contact with hard drive rack, so should i remove back plate (unscrew) or cut it, or cut hard drive rack
2. em running on a local psu of 450w(Frontech JIL), first is it enough, and em using a 6pin to 2x molex connector (cd drive disconnected)
3. how to check whether gpu is 100% perfect

for ques plz refer pics attached

my system spec
intel core 2 quad q8300
cooler master hyper 212 evo
gigabyte g41m combo (775 chipset with 1.1x16 pcie)
