Thanks for the info.

You need to measure the distance as shown in the image on this link, > http://www.tomshardw...spiron-660.html

Your PSU should be a standard size ATX, but check, please measure the height, and width.

Great, good image.

Now measure the PSU, The height and across, (width).  

A PSU to consider, should fit OK.   Phillpower2 may suggest others.  >  http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817438012

Couldn't find a better PSU for less iammykyl.

 

You have the tape on the outside of the case there SaltySalsa, it needs t be on the inside so any add on video card needs to be less than 9"

Assuming that you do want to upgrade your GPU and PSU, let us know your maximum budget for both + in which country you will make any purchase and we will look for some suggestions for you.

Did you read my last reply  :(

 

Edit to add;

 

Please avoid adding multiple posts while waiting for a reply from us, edit your last post to include anything that you wish to add, this will ensure nothing gets overlooked which can sometimes happen if a thread has more than one page. 

 

Edit to the above.

 

The best card that I can find is 9.49" (241mm) when you get a chance can you take a measure from the inside rear of the case up to the hard drive cage to see if it will fit, the PSU that iammykyl suggested will do nicely to support the card I have in mind.

 

Please post a new reply #40 so that we get notification of your reply, we do not get one for edited posts I`m afraid.

Excellent card, but you need to check that distance again, the card is 9.5"  long.
