Ok so as we know i made my desktop friday with a gtx 560 ti oc at 900mhz. Well i decided it wasnt good enough for me. So i returned it to the store today. And i was wondering of a good card for around $300. Had one in mind but not sure was hoping for some personal experiance if anyone could. But im not possitive if it would work with my asrock z77 extreme4. I dont know to much about this supriesed it even worked on my first try of putting it togeather 6 hours that is haha. and of course some help from people on here :) well the card i have in mind is.

GV-R787OC-2GD AMD Radeon HD 7870 2048MB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card

would it fit my curren mobo once again thx for all your help just not to sure when it comes to this things. Also i was plaining on getting new case. One that is a full ATX instead of a mid ATx. Currently have the mid and its to small to me and no room for 2 more fans like i would like. But would i need better power supply to run the extra fans and this new video card. Currently have a TX650M corsair. thx again for all ur help

new case i want
or this one

Case Comparison for the ones you picked plus overall popularity. Notice the fans included.

Your 650W PSU has PCI-Express 2 x 6+2-Pin Connectors which is what the the new Video Card needs.

It should work ok.

Ok im a lil confused so the case i have has a fan that plugs into the mobo only not the power supply on some of the cases i see have connectors to plug into power supply. And i ran outa connectors exepct for 2 sata connectors so does this mean i can only run 2 fans? or can i get a adapter that would turn one sata if thats what its called nto sure into 2 connectors for the fans ? Once again sorry for all the question must be tired of me by now lol

These Cases have all the fans you need.

Will have to buy some adapter splitters to run all the fans.

Is best to run the fans straight from the PSU rather than the MB connectors.

The Salesman can help you.

Yes, mount the USB box in the adapter and then mount the adapter in an open 5.25 top slot in the case.

Works well.

Is what I use.
