Let us know when your PSU is on it's way and one of us will give instructions for doing the swap with the old one.

I have decided on the MSI GeForce GTX 970 gaming 4g, but i was wondering if this will handle DOOM and BattleBorn and new games to come?

It is to early for meaningul benchmarks for DOOM as only Beta testing has been done, final release will be May, http://www.game-debate.com/news/?news=19820&game=Doom%204&title=Doom%20Beta%20Hidden%20Advanced%20Graphics%20Options%20Reveals%20Frame%20Rate%20Not%20Locked%20to%2060  There are tests for the Beta release that showing AMD beating Nvidia.   The GTX 970 is a recommended card so should be fine. 

I don't think you will have any problems playing BattleBorn, but again, to early for reviews, http://www.gamesear....e-been-revealed

i was thinking, should i get a power supply with more the 550W for all the other hardware, or would 550 be a sufficient amount?

For your present hardware an appropriate quality brand 500W PSU that has more than 30 amps on the +12V rail will do, example here, to allow for adding additional HDDs etc in the future consider the EVGA 600B Bronze

If the case concerned is the same as the one here then it will accommodate add on GPUs up to 420mm long, if your GPU is the one same as the one here then it is only 269 x 141 x 35.

the difference between my case and the one you have shown me is that my case don't have the opening between the HDD slots and the disk reader area.

What particular problem are you having with the pictures.

 

Tip

Please avoid adding multiple posts while waiting for us to reply to your last post, 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.

Have you saved your pictures a jpegs, if not they will be too big to upload.

 

We cannot advise unless we see the pics or alternatively if you post a link to the exact model of case you have, btw, some cases will allow the removal of HDD cages to accommodate large add on video cards.

That computer has a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti 2 GB which is a small card at around 184mm long and therefore you could be right in that a larger card may not fit.

 

Pictures would help us to advise you better, do you get an error message when you try to upload the pictures, have you used up your upload limit, if yes, delete your old pictures.
