    yes it is compatible and nowadays people just torrent or use steam for their games, pick up a DVD drive for $30~40 if you like watching movies from DVD

    btw i'd wait for the release of the HD 7xxx series if i were u. XDR2 memory offers almost double the bandwidth of GDDR5

    It's compatible.
    But get a 6850 or 6950.
    You can unlock 6850 to a 6870 and 6950 to 6970.
