The GTX 660 and 670 are the best Legacy cards.

I personally have the EVGA GTX 660 and 670 in my units.  If you can find a 670,  do it.

How about a Gigaybyte Gtx 670 Windforce oc? Will that fit, beacause it has 3 fans?

Follow this guide, and cut a cardboard template of 11" x 5.4" to check the fit.  You will need a 600W PSU, recommend Corsair CX600.

apperantly https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I602S92/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2L77EE7U53NWQ this one can change between Uefi and legacy bios. Is that true and 750ti's are much cheaper, a 670 is off my budgest

@Reed71,

Originally YOU asked about the 670's.  Yes, the GTX 750Ti might work, as there have been issues the switch could n ot address.   Your now going to the GTX 750Ti, a lesser card by all standards.  Wish you luck.

as you said I put a cardboard box with the measures of a 670 and it did not fit and wires were interupting it.
