Does anyone have a Galaxy GTX 460 Razor or PowerColor Radeon HD 6850 for sale? The hyperlinks below are for NewEgg when they used to sell it. I need to get the best single slot graphics card available that is not liquid cooled. If you have a suggestion that is on par or better than what I have suggested, please do.
changing a SLI of 295 for the 6850 will be a huge drop in performance and 200$ in the garbage... why not dual slot, you need pci (-e) slot i imagine... i heard about "Galaxy" that are developing a single slot designed 670... that's about the same performance than 1 of your cards...
1 295 is in the middle of 7870 and 7950 or a 6970 or between a 570 and a 580 or a 670 so anything below that will result in less performance but you gain directx 11 and new tech...
PS: PCI-e 2.0 is enough bandwith for a gtx690 and that will not have a big impact on performance if simply none (2x680 so it's not a problem for bottlenecking in 2 way SLI)
This is going to be a miniITX gaming machine in the Thermaltake Element Q case that only has one PCI expansion slot. This is not for my main gaming machine. xD Thanks for considering though.
ha ok ;) so i'd consider the 6850 over a 460 mainly for power consumption if in a itx case and anyway, if you are not overlclocking, this is the fastest of the two...
Boy, that's a TIGHT case. I was looking for single-slot cards with internal cooling, but pretty much everything with power now, whether you are on the nVidia or AMD side, will occupy a second space whether or not there is rear access, and in this case you would be butting up against the case wall and more.
Have you already purchased this case? You may have limited yourself to an HD 7750 (link below) or other lower power but lower heat GPUs. With nVidia you are going to go back several generations.
I just wanted to post an update. I have built my MiniITX gaming machine using the Thermaltake Element Q, Intel Core i3-2130, and PowerColor Radeon HD 6850. It has been running for nearly a couple of weeks now, and I love it! I'm not going to lie, this thing is shy of a space heater, but it was expected.
