Video Card Help

  1. I'm planning to buy GeForce 260 GTX.
    Will it fit on a Asus P5KPL-AM SE MOBO?

    I can also have some suggestions on what video card to buy. I want to play the latest high-end games in a 24'' monitor. Any recommendations? or 260 GTX is enough? Is it also recommended to put 260 GTX in SLI?

    Thank you guys!

    The GTX 260 (or any PCIE based graphics card) will fit on the motherboard.
    Your board doesn't support SLI/Crossfire (dual graphics cards), so you are limited to one card.
    The GTX260 should be ok with most (if not all) games at 1920x1080 resolution- you might just need to dial down the eye-candy on the very graphics intensive games.
    If you're not locked into buying a GTX260 and you aren't ATIphobic then I'd suggest buying a HD 5850 in preference as it offers much superior performance and the ability to use DirectX 11 in games that use it...IF your budget can stretch.If you can wait a few weeks the price will probably drop once nVidia's next generation cards hit the review sites (if not the retail shelves).

    What CPU do you have in that system? and importantly PSU rating/make/model etc. Your motherboard can only accommodate one graphic card.

    Rest has been pretty much covered by DBZ, so i need to say no more.
