    I was recently given the ASUS ENGTX295 (2DI/1792MD3) graphics card. I understand that, at the time, it was one of the best performing graphics cards. I am trying to decide whether or not I want to use it or try to sell it. My concerns are as follows:

    1. How much power does it need

    2. What is the smallest case size it will fit into?

    3. It is supposed to have an HDMI port but, it only has 2 DVI ports. How does the HDMI capability come into play?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks. Yeah I found this earlier but, the User Manual isn't available through ASUS on that page. Appreciate it though.

    A lot. Minimum pw supply is 680W. Here is the spec sheet for a gtx 295;
    https://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-295/specifications

    While that card was top of the line when released, it was released 10yr ago and it is pretty much worthless now. It is fine to use as a basic video card however do understand that you are going to have to install a 700W pw supply to use your "basic" card.

    Many years ago, I had a gtx 260. It was a great card back then however I would never think of using it today.
