Aurora Graphicscard upgrade?

Hi,

 

I want to upgrade my graphics card of my Aurora.

currently i got a dual  Radeon HD 8670 CrossfireX and i want to change to Nvidia.

Do i need specific model? or can i take any model i want?

Because i think the fan is a problem, since the fan blows out of the back, instead of on the top/bottom of the card.

edit: Also, the cards have no space between them, so they cant flow air when the fan is at the top/bottom

EVGA GTX460 2Win is a good choice = single card that you run SLI because of the two GPU's onboard.

if you want the best single card  get a 6990. The 580 is a VERY close second and will work just as well with one monitor if you like nvidia.

Alienware Aurora

i7 920@3.3ghz

ATi 6950 2GB @6970 Full Unlock

6GB Tri-Channel 1333mhz RAM

2x 500GB Barracuda HDD Raid 1

2x 60GB OCZ VERTEX 2 SSD Raid 0
