Can someone help me ?

I've an Aurora ALX with a Nvidia GTX 480 and I want to change to a GTX 680. Is any cables or accessories necessary for that ? No compatibilty problem ? Enough space in the tower ?

Thank you

It should be a simple plug in and play. However I do believe the 680 needs 2 6pin power connectors.. might want to check on that. I'm pretty such anything about the 660Ti needs 2 plugs.
What version of Aurora so you have? R2 R3? You should be able to check in the AlienAutopsy.

I have an Aurora R1 and I plugged a GTX 670 straight in without any troubles. All the cables were either already in the machine or came with the card. It had a GTX 260 in it prior to my 670.

Yeh I think the difference could be the number of power cables going into the card.
So it would depend on your PSU, if it has all the required cables.
