Hello, I'm looking to get a new graphics card, my budget is around £100 and I have recommended getting an HD 6850 which sounds fine. It's a Dell (sigh) Studio XPS 8100. My computer specs are currently: Intel i7-860 2.8 quad 6 Gb Ram HD 5450 - pants.

Buuut, the problem I have is I'm not sure if a new card would fit on the Motherboard! (gasp) Have a look and help would be appreciated :) http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/6997/picture1sx.jpg

Not a good photo but it looks as there isn't enough room to fart in there.

I'm sorry for the 1.3mp picture :/ If the depth of the card is down, then anything will fit, but I'm not sure what these cards are like in real life.

Same here according to the duff size shown in Amazon. More info on the card and note the minimum PSU is 500W.

So is the HD 6850 the biggest bang for buck? Or are there better for cheaper? What sort of FPS would I get on crysis max settings with a: i7-860-2.8gz 6gb ram HD 6850
