Will an HSI Radeon 6850 fit inside an Inspiron 530?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Okay, well I've been told my computer can handle the 6850. It has 6gb ram, Q6600 quad core 2.4GHz, and a 450w good quality corsair PSU. I'm a little worried about the size of the new card though. I currently have a XFX 5750. I'm concerned that the blue and orange wire connecting to the motherboard in front of the GPU might be in the way. I couldn't get that good of a look though. The whole to the right of the card under the metal cover is empty. Here are some pics:

They are just sata cables from your CD/DVD ROM and your HDD you could move them to a different sata slot if you got any.

I can see one extra sata slot for sure I don't know if you have a forth sata slot though I can't tell by the pictures.

EDIT: The thing that should worry you is the 6850 recomends a 500W PSU or greater, but I can't say how good your PSU is, but I would say your PSU won't be able to handle it but thats just my opinon because I don't know what model your PSU is and how good it is.

Well I know the width and height of it are virtually the same as the current graphics card. The length of the current is 7 inches, 6850 is 9 inches. I was just worried about those 2 cables. I'm gonna have to check again to see if theres another slot!

And this is my PSU:
CORSAIR CMPSU-450VX 450W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certi

Think it might of cut off a little bit but on the PSU name but yeah.

As long as your PC doesn't have a S on the end (like 530s), you should be alright.
But why not pull out the ruler and check to see?

I would if I were you to be on the safe side ask if that PSU will be able to run that GPU on your system, because I really am not that great when it comes to being able to tell if something cutting it that close will run it.

Post that question in the PSU section because they will know more than I do, I know for sure though that you should ask to be sure.

He probably has a 450W PSU that came from the OEM. Nothing too large. He will want to pick up a new PSU for sure.

Well on the front it doesn't say Inspiron 530s so I think I'm good there. And the PSU is not an OEM it's a Corsair CMPSU-450VX 450W ATX12V V2.2 80
