I am buying Radeon HD4870 card but was wondering if it would fit in my case. Hereare some pictures.
I was woried wherever the graphics card would be too long on the motherboard and that it would hit the ram sockets and not fit in or overheat easier if it was touching them and that if it grew too much in height it would hit a capacitor below the PCI-E port.
Would I need to buy any more fans for this card aswell or is all the cooling needs in the box?
On a side note my friend bought exactly the same card however when he tries playing games with it after about 30mins of playing his entire system crashes and Alt+Ctrl+Del (The screen just freezes and displays the last frame of the game) wont work at al and it loops a horrible loud static noise. He plugs in his card via HDMI so thats where the sound comes from. Also he turned down the frequency of the card and it appeared that the crashes happened less frequently or that they wouldnt be as seriuos as before as they would happen without the horrible static noise and the screen would just display black rather than the last frame of the game.
