    @aceracc323 depends on what settings ;p, when configuring settings to play with. the fps has to average at about 60 fps for most ppl to play comfortable with.

    Lol, good video for those who don't know how to install a video card. To bad ATI couldn't resolve this problem or have seen it ahead of time because that card really is massive!

    I think the cost you pay to have your pc assembled should be reduced. Not saying that installing a card is particularly difficult but if you buy installation service and you have to do part of the installation yourself, it would make sense to either charge less for installation or put a low cost plastic support bracket to keep it in place during shipping.

    I wonder if nVidia and ATI will update their reference mounting to have stronger integrated bracketing on the rear to help offload the stress from the extra weight from large pcb/coolers/etc.

    I got a small question, can you tell me how to find out if a video card will even fit inside of a computer.
    I am thinking about getting a 5750 and i don't want to throw away 150$ PLEASE HELP!!!!

    first off u need 2 know if u have a PCI-e x16 slot or PCi-e 2.0(they look like the slot he was putting that graphics card in)(PCI-e x16 slots dont have that little clip on the right site). Next u need 2 know what power supply is required 2 run the graphics card (i suggest having at least 50-100 watts more) and 2 c if the power supply has the right connectors. if not go buy a new power supply and/or molecs to PCI power adapter. And make sure that graphics card is not 2 long 4 ur case either.

    @plotikai They charge $50 to build the system, not really a whole lot, so I think having a damage free system is worth $50 and putting the card in yourself.

    Are you serious? I'd rather have them ship the video card seperate so that I can get the original BOX in case I'd like to upgrade (So that I can sell it to someone).

    what are the extra little cables on the psu 6 pin pci-e power cables? There are little cables that are there that you don't plug in the card, they just sit aside. What are those used for?

    hi..a got a dell PC with Dell 02Y832 mobo and a NVIDIA GeForce4 MX440 with AGP8x… i want to upgrade the video card so i purchased a Radeon HD4350 AGP.. but after uninstalling the previous card driver , removing the card and mounting the new card (HD4350) , the screen is empty (all black)..the cpu is on, the card is seated properly but i just dont know how to solve it…also, will a PCI video card fit on any PCI slot on this mobo?? pls help me..PM or reply..thank you

    i have a HiS 5850 and it doesnt have that massive heat sink/heatpipe configuration, so im guessing its a Powercolor card issue with the extra weight of the copper heatpipes hanging off the side that was causing the snapping of the pci-e slot.
    My rig was sent interstate with no issues.

    @LFCforEver12341 yeah i was about to buy the 5830 but instead got a gtx 460! lol but hey the 5830 is now only $180 but i still choose the gtx 460… i STILL dont understand why everyone hated the 5830 though lol

    I'm having some problems with an HD 5830. The video card powers up but I have installed the drivers and unistalled the drivers multiple times with no representation of it in dxdiag. Is that because I only have 1 6-pin connector or am I doing something wrong???

  18. Flying Karapet on

    My Case Has Slot at the front so the back of the card can slid in and helps with support but only if the card is long enough to reach the slot at the back and if it cant then i guess it doesn't need to but is about 13 inches from the back plate so i think only a HD 5970 would reach
