    Is it possible? I was thinking of installing a low heat dual slot dual fan card or would it end up with overheating issues because it can't blow the air through the vent holes at the back of the card where the display connections are? Also what ate some good low heat cards? I don't really want anything weaker than a 6850 tho

    well get one with a radial style cooler on it, it shouldn't be a problem for most non-blower cards
