YOu could get a USB adapter for your wireless possibly, sell you other one to someone thumb.gif Otherwise youre right, a lot of MAD cards have stacked DVI, so it may be hard to find one, Im not aware of any off the top of my head thinking.gif

This means you can put a PCIe x 4 card in to a x4, x8 and x16 slot but not a x1 slot. Each time you go up in a x# the first set of pins stay the same. I have read that some MBs you may have to force the PCI lane in the bios for them to work properly.
I would try to run it in one of you other slots and is it works you can but what ever card you want thumb.gif

here's my boards layout:

PCIE 16x/8x = GTX470
PCIE 1x = Mini PCIE to PCIE wireless N adapter
PCIE 16x/8x = GT210
PCI = Empty (is there any use for these anymore?)

But I'm in India for the next three weeks (Interning at a college) and wont have my computer for another 3 weeks frown.gif
(Btw dont mind the quotes cause I have no clue how to quote inside a quote)

I just get mine at target or whatever, its not the highest purity, but anything over 70% is good, right at 70% leaves more water than I would like behind when cleaning off thermal paste etc, but I have been using it with no problems. With that being said, I dont think its too hard to find 90%+ easily.

2k for speaker components? Buy a car instead tongue.gif

Just an idea I thought some of you may like thumb.gif

Yea, take that cage out and make room for some watercooling Snorkle.gif

I see, well I'm not 100% sure but in the past there was a hack to use a nvidia card as a cuda card with AMD GPU's. The only down side was you had to use really outdated drivers for both cards. This was a long time ago I was looking at it and things might have changed but if not you might not even be able to use the newer AMD cards. If thing have changed, you can get a usb stick like Shadow Foxx said.

i'm not worried about retaining my GT210, i just use it to drive my second monitor so my main card doesn't have to share video memory, if anything, i'd just replace it will a low power AMD card to drive the second monitor.

Oh yeah, I remember that, sorry look at way too many PCs to keep them all straight redface.gif

Out of all the single slot cards I can find on sale, you still have the most powerful one. There is a 7750 and 6850 out and they both will loss out to the 470.

oh i guess thats a guy thing right GI? tongue.gif but yeah i agree with you, the size of the card isnt important, its what its made of that counts, and its slightly better than the 5850 from what i can see smile.gif
