Just noticed that the Asus R9 280X/7970 Matrix card might have an issue with my Asus P6TD Motherboard. There's an heatsink that might block me from using that card due to height, it never crossed my mind considering it's an Asus motherboard but it's a good few years old now so that might explain that. Will have to check for sure, but the Matrix appears to take up three slots so that could be an issue. It's a great looking card though. Oh and one quick question, noticed the 7970 version doesn't support DirectX 11.2? Not a big issue right? Is that something driver support can update on the card?
Anyway I'll read up on it and discover more. I won't go canceling that preorder just yet, I noticed the 7970 Matrix is priced almost around the 280X which is sort of a shame but makes sense.
Sadly it seems we get a rough deal of it price-wise in the UK, not as bad as some places but we do tend to pay more.
Thanks for the input, great help.
Edit: On quick futher inspection it looks like it would fit. Plus the Antec 1200 case should be big enough. the 5870 takes up two and I was looking at the fitting in the wrong way, stupid me! If anything it's my sound card that might be moving.
It's early here... I'm still sleepy! Edited by MachoFantastico - 10/14/13 at 12:14am
