I working on my first build in about 10 years...yeah. Its been awhile.
The one thing I dont want to give up is my old Chieftec Dragon case. This is the old
Alienware style box.
Its still sweet looking after all these years.
I'm thinking about either a Hd 5670 or a 6670 card...there is my question in a nutshell.
I cant find anywhere that gives the card dimensions. From the back of the case to within about an inch of where the hdd sets in its cage, I have 9". Is this enough?
The other question is about ram. I'm thinking about going with 1600mhz ram vs the 1333. I would think this would give a little head room for some overclocking (nothing too radical).
The rest of the specs are looking like this.
Asus M5A97 mobo
8 gigs of ddr 3
amd am3 quad core in the 3ghz range
coolermaster 650 psu.
I tell you what. With all the new tech out now, I feel like a noob!
Thanks for your time.
