My budget is currently anything under $165. The x850xt looks like a great buy, the only thing I am scared about is how people always mention the compatibility of video cards relative to size (how can I be sure it will fit perfectly? and how people have mentioned overheating, and stuff like that. How am I to know if it's too strong for my computer, or if it needs more fans, and what not?
I am installing it in a brand new computer
So it makes me a bit cautious. The reviews on NewEgg say how it overheats without overclocking and what not. I don't want to tamper with the fans and all honestly, perhaps there is another card similar in power, without the problems of heating and size etc? But how do you read it (specs wise), and know that it's not too strong, or has more voltage than my computer actually puts out? Etc. I want to also read it.
It says "300-Watt Power Supply or higher recommended" and I can't find anywhere which mentions the power supply on my computer.
Also, How do you determine which one is better, is it by Memory Clock speed? (I've noticed good cards have 1000+ MHz), so I am assuming that would be a good thing?
