Help choosing graphics card

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Recently I overclocked my 5770 to 1ghz core, 1385 mem because I knew that my card is getting old and I wanted more fps and im happy with the overclock, in every benchmark I have done the gtx 460 768mb has barely beaten it .

But I have a feeling that this will greatly reduce the lifespan of my card so I need to think of a new card to buy I was thinking of the 6870 or the 6950 but this is where I need some help.

If you look at my computer specs I have an antec vsk 2000 so could someone please tell me if one of these cards could fit.

My next question is that my mother board has a yellow wire; its flat I think its called the sata 2 wire? well it got in the way of every card I have owned therefore I had to saw the exhaust of the card of but im sure it could be moved somewhere else and if someone has experience with this board could tell me where.

Any way this forum is full of lifesavers, thanks in advance.

Well you could get a 6950 and unlock it to a 6970 and it would be future-proof. Anyways your case would fit if you don't get a hard drive in front of the card, and what do you mean by sawing the exhaust of the card off?
