EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB GDDR5 2DVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI E Video Card W | eBay


So...... WILL THIS CARD WORK WITH MY COMPUTER AS IT IS?? I figure it has to be a BIG step up from having two (1 gig each) NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT cards run in SLI!

In theory it should work as 525W is plenty for a single GTX760 but i would be concern how much space there is in the case as some graphics card are fairly long in length.
