  1. I am running an EVGA 680i board, 500 watt Antec PSU, dual 8800 320 (SLI) EVGA cards 2 gb memory intel core 2 duo processor. I am looking at the
    EVGA 01G-P3-1372-TR GeForce GTX 460

    I am looking to upgrade my video. Is this card a good fit or can I go higher?

    Will any x16 card work on my board?

    I understand I may need to upgrade my psu but I am not concerned about that at thus point.

    I looked at the other posts but they didn't answer my questions...

    Regards

    The Antec 500 watt might just be enough right now. It is a quality power supply :)

    I am not immediately concerned about the PSU because it may well depend on what GPU I purchase. Am I going to hit a bottleneck with the higher cards?
