Your list of parts in reply #43

 

Hear is the  link to the Pc i am buying. 

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16883230030

Processor :AMD FX-4300 3.8 GHz

Processor Main Features : 64 bit Quad-Core Processor

Cache Per Processor :4 MB L3 Cache

Memory :4 GB DDR3

Storage :1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM

Optical Drive :24x DVD+-R/+-RW DUAL LAYER DRIVE

Graphics :NVIDIA Geforce GT 720 1 GB

Ethernet :Gigabit Ethernet

Power :Supply 350W

Case :Corsair SPEC 01 Gaming Case
 

Operating System Windows 10 Home

 

 

Is that the model of case that you ordered as it does not look remotely like the one in your stock picture above - Carbide Series® SPEC-01 Red LED Mid-Tower Gaming Case

 

With the best will in the world we cannot possibly give you a definitive answer without knowing the exact brand and model name or number of the case so that we can look for a user manual, if one is not available you will need to contact Newegg and ask them the maximum size GPU that will fit.

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.

 

Aye was a bit confusing  :P

 

Specs here state Support up to 400MM VGA card and PCI slots provide flexibility for multiple graphics cards solutions.

To upload any pics, as said they must be saved a jpeg;

 

Click on the More Reply Options tab then after typing in any response you have... click on Choose File...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on Attach This File...on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

Gday.

Only thing is I wish that the mental grate in front of the psi would come out. 

No, you can't remove it. the 4 larger holes at each corner look like mounting holes for the front intake fan.   See images on Newegg.   Fan mounts, a b and c.

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811353042

 

 Secondly what dose it mean by PCI slots provide flexibility for multiple graphics cards solutions?

Refers to the 7 metal slot covers at the back of the case.   You remove the ones opposite the PCI slot your using on the MB, so the PCI card ports stick out of the case, at the back.

Thanks Iammykyl for explaining the PCI flexibility, anyway it should fit. If not i can always modify the case a bit or just get a larger one.

 

Thanks to everyone that has been helping, will let you know how it turns out when the Graphic card get hear in the upcoming weeks.
