graphics card dimensions HP Pavilion 6774y

Hi,

 

 

I am deciding on what graphics card (or video card if you will) to buy. I don't need any help on deciding, but I would like to know what dimensions will fit inside the pc (regarding space). My computer is an un-changed and un-upgraded HP Pavilion 6774y Magnesium Gray edition. What size dimensions will fit in the area where the PCIe x16 is in between the power supply and processor fan?

Will a dual-core fit? Is it too wide?

How long can it be?

How tall?

Will the case that I have support it regarding the end of the card?

 

I am currently deciding on getting a GeForce GTX 560 Ti which looks like this:

 

http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Mini-HDMI-Graphics-02G-P3-1568-KR/dp/B005760836/ref=sr_1_2?s=elec...

( Sorry if links aren't allowed on this forum)

 

as you can see on the edge there's a silver part. It looks a little too big to fit with the case to me.

If you could help me out in finding out the maximum dimensions that a video card could fit in the 6674y, that would be great.

And if you could suggest any cards that are better in any way that would also be appreciated.

 

Thank you.

Re: graphics card dimensions HP Pavilion 6774y

Here are the specs of the GeForce GTX 560 Ti (#02G-P3-1568) Graphics Card you are looking at. At about 9 inches long, it should fit fine in you case. It will take up two PCIe slots,so make sure the PCIe x1 slot next to the PCIe x16 graphics slot is empty. You will also need a 500 watt or larger power supply to use this card. The Corsair CX500 and CX600 come highly recommended and are known to fit many HP cases.

This is the power supply you suggested.

It seems that it is up-side down from my case. Any other suggestions and/or options for psu?

Yes, that is the power supply. And yes, it installs with the fan blades facing down.
