Windows 7: External GPU (eGPU)

Alright so I think I'm going to buy the 6A one. I think it will be better in the long run bc its 72w and won't be maxed out all the time.

Good choice, the power supply will only supply what is needed based on the load it has.

Newegg is the eBay seller for the 6670 but on their site they offer a $15 rebate card.

Won't you have a lot of "stuff" laying out in the open after you put this together? Perhaps Radio Shack would have a kit box to assemble it in.

yupp. thats y if it works, first thing im going to do is build a box to mount everything in and put a fan on it lol then im going to buy a 17-18" 1080 or 720 monitor depending on what i find.

edit:
so theres 3 of them on newegg website. one thats 1gb and mem clock is 1333mhz ddr3 and 2gb which mem clock is 1600mhz ddr3
or 1gb mem clock is 1000mhz gddr3

so should i get the 2gb one because of the higher mem speeds or is it not worth it?

That one if it's power requirements are very close to your first choice.

Pretty sure it's the same power requirements, I'll have to check. But I doubt it's over 72w
