    More than enough if I'm not mistaken.
    Click the 'Thanks' button at the bottom right if I helped you in some way or if you're a good person looking to thank me for no reason

    Ok thanks for all the answers ill be saving for a 680 seeing as my 660 kinda goes to 50-80 degrees playing bf3 atm ( 670 if it wont fit in my mid-tower case), from your replies i assume that the motherboard has no affect.

    It might be able to fit.
    Find some specs on it, how big it is.
    Then measure the room in your case

    Yea i know but mine came ready built and its a mid tower, got brilliant cable management and its a lot of effort to put it in a full tower, just like building a pc and concidering it comes with 4 year warranty don't really want to piss them off by making it bigger XD

    The 680 looks nice. It will run fine!
