Hi jag,

 

Review this posted document for background information.  You will need to measure to see how much room you have inside the PC.  Some of the NVIDIA 670 video cards are 9.5" to 10" in length and also require a 500 watt power supply with two available PCI-E 6 pin power connectors.

 

Your PC only has a 300 watt power supply so you will need to also upgrade the power supply.

Re: will my card gtx 670 fit in mid size atx ?

Hi,

 

ThisCorsair power supply would be a good choice and would physically fit perfect.  This new power supply has longer cables so you should be able to route them aside in order to provide installation space for the video card.

 

The typical GTX 670 is between 9.5 and 10" in length.  Please refer to the posted document that I had referenced above for video cards.  The below image that you provided shows in red where to measure.  The additional red arrow is to make sure that this motherboard piece of hardware doesn't provide an obstacle for installing the video card.

These HP 'how-to" articles should be helpful.

 

I also recommend that you use a can of compressed air to blow out the dust inside the PC and in particular the CPU heat sink assembly.
