I'm upgrading my dell optiplex gx620 Desktop to play more recent games, so i bought a AMD Radeon 6670 (128 bit) DDR5 1GB deadicated GPU and my system will start up and crash afterwards. I had to take the heatsink off the cpu cus it was in the way of my new GPU. I'm not very knowledgeable of what would happen of getting rid of the heatsink and im getting a 600 watt psu (it wont fit in my current case). I was thinking i might:
A: buy new case
B: keep the psu out of the case
C: try to modify the case and fit the psu in there
Sir, the heat sink wasn't even attached to the CPU directly, but held on by other plastic pieces. I was just wondering if it was going to affect anything majorly. Would there be other ways to put it back on?
