    Hi guys,
    Just a noob question (and hopefully something someone can answer without too much investigation).
    Would my motherboard "Z68XP-UD3R (Socket 1155)" be able to fully utilise this card?

    •  

      I don't see why it wouldn't

    •  

      Should be fine with that mobo.

      Don't forget to confirm whether the rest of your machine is OK as well.

      1) GPU Size - Will it fit? Do you have a space in the next slot over to fit the card as it is dual slot?

      2) PSU Rating - Is your power supply powerful enough? Is it a decent brand that will actually live up to its rating?

      3) PSU Connectors - Do you have a spare 6 AND 8 pin PCIE connector on your PSU?

      •  

        also take into consideration the other stuff you already have like HDDs.

        i've got 8 HDDs …. which affects my calculation in the capacity for example.

  •  

    Hmmm I think my PSU is too small. I have an XFX PRO 550, and this page says minimum recommended is 650w.

    •  

      It has the 6 and 8 pin connectors, and is bronze certified, so it will probably work. If you are running lots of other equipment it is probably better to step up a level though.

    •  

      So a generic 500w Thermltake PSU worldnt handle it?

      •  

        most TT generic (lightpower??) have 80%+ efficiency even without the cert, so it should be fine if your not overloading on fans and hdd's with a heavy overclock.

    •  

      650w doesn't sound right. Should be 500-550w.

      Edit:

      XFX

      Minimum Power Supply Requirement : 500 watt
      XFX Recommended Power Supply : XFX 650W PSU

      Hmmm I think my PSU is too small. I have an XFX PRO 550, and this page says minimum recommended is 650w.

      Nah you'll be fine. I'm running an OC'ed 7970 on a nearly 3-year old Antec TruePower 550W along with a i7 960 (TDP = 130W), a CM Hyper 212+ and 5 case fans.

      Always take every manufacturer's recommended PSU ratings with a grain of a salt and see the card's maximum power draw in benchmarks. A 7970 can pull about 315W at load; 550 - 315 = 235W to play with. Knock off 50W to account for most PSU's inefficiencies and that still leaves 185W to power the rest of your system; which with today's very power efficient CPUs is more than enough.

    just bought the last one from PLE wangara, comes with the 3 free games gold card.

    would this be a good card to use for litecoin mining?
