Default Are these graphic cards compoatible with my PC?

My PC specs are here:
Newegg.com - CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1072LQ Desktop PC Intel Core i5 655K(3.20GHz) 4GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity ATI Radeon HD 5770 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Would either of these cards be compatible with it? I am planning to replace the ATI Radeon 5770 as it's failing and having artifacts all over the screen.

SAPPHIRE 100355OCL Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card OC Version

SAPPHIRE 100352-2L Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Default Re: Are these graphic cards compoatible with my PC?

you have the PCI-E slot on the motherboard and more than enough of a watt limit on the power supply.

the only thing left is the PCI-E power connectors from the power supply. It appears you have at least one 6pin so the 7850 will work.

if you have two 6pins then the 7950 will work.

careful tho, take a look at how many 6pins, 6+2pins (6 or 8 pin), or 8pins PCI-E connectors your power supply has and then look at the specifications of the graphic card you wish to buy to make sure you have enough of the right kind. for example, I noticed a 7850 that takes two 6pins instead of one 6pin.
