    Hello all right now I have an xfx 9800 gt I can see its not gonna run some newer games so I d like to upgrade but it can't take up more than one bracket as immediately below the pci express 2.0 I have a tv tuner for watching tv so is there anything more powerfull. While keeping in mind the size limitations thanx

    One of the better performance cards I have seen that would suit is an XFX Radeon HD 5770 for about $150. There are plenty of choices out there, but you need to be careful, as many of the single slot cards have coolers that are much wider. Is it not possible to move the tuner card?

    The tv card is pci-e and the tv card is pci-e and there is only one slot where it will fit immediately below the pci-e 2.0 so there is not enough room for a double slot card and the tv tuner card, also I've seen online video cards called galaxy gtx 460+ razor. How do those measure up

    I'd recommend a USB Digital TV adapter, which will then free up space for a bigger high-end card like a HD6970 etc.
