Short Graphics for WC & Gaming

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Looking at trying to get my itx rig smaller. Found some nice cases, but my WC'd 7950 just wont fit. So I'm curious if anyone can suggest a good gaming card (I would like performance similar to my 7950) that has a waterblock available for it that will be less than 200mm (7.75")? Thanks in advance.

The gtx 670 has a very short pcb, and has waterblocks available.

Some gtx 760s use the same pcb, it appears.

Thanks. Performance of the 760 would be about right with my unlocked 7950. Seems like I have to poke around trying to find a make with the short PCB. When I find one it will just come into length (9.5" or so it would seem).

Any guess if a SILVERSTONE ST45SF 450W (80 PLUS BRONZE) would be enough to power it? I see nvidia recommends larger, but this is the highest wattage SFX power supply I can find. Playing in ITX world just requires such specialized items. . . .

I think the easiest way to go would be to go through the cooling configurator on ekwb.com.

Just type in gtx 760 and pick a card, it'll show you the pcb. Here's one: http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/step1_complist?gpu_gpus=1099

I think 450w would be fine until you started overclocking, then you'd want at least 500w.

Yeh, I would tend to like more like 700 watts, but you just don't see much above 400w in sfx form. Guess I need to rethink case / application.
