not a problem, it's not your fault :D I assume you don't have to use the PCI slot cooler that some reviews seem to mention?

Thanks for the help.

bugger, ordered it now. The mobo has 2 pci slots so hopefully the other one should be useable :)

thanks, I wasn't sure as it seems to have a huge heatsink attached and I need to use the other pci slot for a wireless card.

BTW- will adding the S2 cooler void the warranty of the graphics card?

What do people make of the ASUS EAH3650 SILENT MAGIC 512MB graphics card. It says 0db but i'm not sure if it would fit in my case/motherboard (Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L or Asus P5KPL-AM)

Thanks for the info guys, is it worth spending the extra few quid to get DDR3 memory on the gfx card or will it not make much difference?

Cheap & quiet graphics card to fit the NSK1380?

Could someone recommend a half-decent graphics card (for light gaming) which costs under £50 and fit's the Antec NSK1380. I've come up with the following so far: 1) Sapphire Radeon HD 3650 512MB DDR2 - £43 2) Sapphire Radeon HD 3650 512MB DDR3 - £50 3) Sapphire Radeon HD2600 XT 256MB DDR2 - £50 ...

btw- is this the adaptor you refer to? I assume that the svideo would just provide the video signal and 3.mm audio lead would go into the sound card as i'm currently doing?

I'm looking for a socket 775 matx motherboard with a composite (I think) connector on the back to hook it up to my TV. Currently, i've got a wire (seems to be like ebay item # 330274375902) going from my graphics card to my TV scart socket, so I'm after a motherboard with integrated graphics with th...

Can't seem to find much at retailers about it, except this which says to expect stock on the 3rd of november

no worries andy, would much rather know now rather than after purchasing it :) Although, i've just had a look at the user manual and it says you only need about 2.5cm unrestricted above the vent, I should have about 10cm so I would imagine this will be ok? Still leaves a couple of issues though, one...

if you want to go budget, then I am affraid Intel is bit... expensive. You would do better with AMD X2 4850e and some AMD 780G Chipset or nVidia 8200 chipset. I've tried finding some benchmarks to find out how much difference there is between the 2 processors but haven't had much luck. The price di...
