What's a sg05

OP are you sure the sugo has a 450w PSU, according to newegg it only has a 300w. Either way even if it is 450w you're going to have trouble getting a card that won't suck for 1440p gaming that will fit in your requirements. You really ought to consider changing your requirements because I can't think of anything that won't give you a bad experience. The AMD cards are more power efficient currently so they have the best chance of working for you (especially considering the fact that you will need lots of VRAM), but even they won't work with such a small PSU I don't think. You need to realize how at odds the things you are trying to do are, the case you're looking at isn't supposed to house a gaming system, especially not one of the power that your monitor will require. You don't get a giant expensive monitor and then try to feed it from a GPU that you expect to be so small and use no power, it just doesn't work that way.

His psu is fine, so long as he doesnt put a GTX 480 in there, 6970 may be pushing it, but 6950 shouldnt be an issue.

I'd go with a 6950 2GB if you can fit one, or another 560ti 2gb.

To mod or not to mod...

Do people agree that the hierarchy here would be:

2gb 6970
2gb 6950
2gb 560 ti

I think I'm going for the 2gb 560ti. Those AMD cards seem better performance wise, but I really don't have time to start modding my case (nor do I want to use a diff. case).

Thanks all
