Thanks easyrider, but I saw from newegg reviews that some people had issues with dual monitor support on the Powercolor.
The "quiet" HIS is also no longer an option because it takes up two slots (more info follows).
I want a Radeon 4670 for it's power usage and performance, but I'm limited by these requirements (when I say "under" and "above", I'm referring to when the mobo is set up in a tower configuration):
-512 MB ideally (I'm using Win XP 32-bit right now and want to have as much system RAM as possible)
-good dual monitor support
-singleslot (the heatsink can spill over underneath the video card, but the video card can't have 2 "slots" that need to be screwed into the case)
The singleslot requirement is due to my sound card, which takes up 2 PCI slots. The second slot (above the sound card chip) only screws into the case and does not take up space directly above the sound card (ie, where another PCI card would fit). My sound card is modded and the second slot above the sound card contains RCA outputs.
It fits like:
-PCI-E slot (for video card)
-PCI slot (only used for plate that screws into motherboard, otherwise there's space)
-PCI slot (for sound card)
Pic of mobo: here
My motherboard has 2 PCI-E slots. The one I've referred to so far is the "main" PCI-E slot. The other PCI-E slot is above the "main" and is the "slave." If I could use the "slave" for the video card, I would not have the 1-slot requirement, but I have not found any information on that (from the manual, contacting the manufacturer, or elsewhere).
I'm considering buying any old 4670 and attaching an aftermarket cooler. What coolers fit onto a 4670 and don't use up too much space underneath the video card?
Edit: Based on reviews I've read, it seems like I should be able to use either slot, but the "slave" is limited to 8x and the "master" can go to 16x.
What's the performance difference between 8x pci-e and 16x pci-e for a card like a Radeon 4670?
