    I have the Silverstone LC11M HTPC case and wondered if anyone knows if a Sapphire 2600XT card will fit inside my case. I have the PCI-E riser card installed but concered about sizes etc. I take it I can only have the single width card but is the length okay? :rolleyes:

    I don't know the case so can't answer that, but concerning the PSU, the 2600ST is not too much of a demanding card and uses a 45nm dye so is quite efficient. But it all depends what PSU you are using at the moment? Some 2600XT cards require extra power, so exactly which 2600XT card is it?

    I was just thinking of the Sapphire 2600XT 256mb GDDR3 (http://www.dabs.com/productview.aspx?quicklinx=4MW0)

    The power supply is a 240w but its a special shape and so I can't easily replace it. I have been told in the past thats its a particualy good 240w and probably equivalent to a standard 350w PC PSU.

    No extra power connector is necessary so you should be okay, as long as it fits that is!
