Cool, will it fit?  Do you have all of the required plugs/adapters? Very Happy

Well, everything fits....  but gotta tell ya, its pretty disappointing because this particular card doesn't seem to perform any better than the 9500 GT.  Gonna play around with it a little and see what I can come up with....

There are utilities to overclock that GPU, if you want to muck around with it.  Don't do it unless you have really good cooling for the case, or you might fry something.  Defintely download and install the latest drivers from the NVidea website.  Wink

The GPU is already overclocked straight from the factory.  Its the CPU that I want to try overclocking...  not quite sure how to just yet though...

Be very careful with that Chris, or you might see a puff of smoke before your screen goes blank.  I really only recommend overclocking on a 2nd machine.  If you only have one machine, tread lightly my friend. Smile

Just make sure you keep enough fans in your case to keep the graphics card cool. If you don't it will overheat and not only burn up your gfx card, but your motherboard and everything else with it.
