I measured and it's a tight fit but it will fit. But the case is another thing I will update soon too. (If you saw what this thing looked like you would wonder why not the case first)

Ty For the help. Much Appreciated

I want to be able to play BF3 but I'm on a VERY short budget right now. I need a major GPU upgrade lol, so i was curious if anyone knew how far up the line can this MB handle GPU wise? Example: if I slapped a GTX 580 in it will it work? I know of course I need a PSU update to go with it of course.
Not much you can do with a 350W PSU and your CPU will probably bottleneck almost all newer cards. I would save some money and go for a new motherboard, an i5 2500k and a 560Ti and your gaming experience will be improved by a lot.

There are less expensive alternatives, but remember that the number #1 complaint with a GPU is excessive heat and noise.

Dropping a little more for a superior cooling solution is money well spent.

6850 takes less than 150 watt maybe it will work with your current psu if you disconnect unnecessary stuff like spare hdd's cdrom/dvdrw all usb's

check this calculator:

Use the OCN PSU calculator if you're going to use one.
It was a lot more accurate when I tried it for my PC than the outervision one.

I'd run it and tell you the best card you'd be able to use with your PSU but I'm on a college PC at the moment and it doesn't have winrar so I can't run the calculator.

Okay so here's an update: I wanna try to find something cheap, preferable under $100 (lower the better) and can be run by my current PSU. I'm very short on cash and like stated before wanna be able to at least PLAY BF3. Not to worried about maxing out graphics ect. Ati or nvidia anything works. Price is my major factor!

That PSU is rated to supply a lot of power on the 12V rails for a 350 Watter and is made by Delta, who are reputable.

Since you can't overclock your CPU which only uses 95W or less when running at stock, leaving 250 for the rest of the components in a worst-case scenario, you could run a 560ti on that PSU.

A 560ti is a 170W card so 170+95=265 leaving 95W for the rest of the system which is enough.

Check your PSU's label, if it says 12VA--/12A 12V2--/18A then it's the one I think it is.

Edit: And as has been said, your board should accept any card as long as it has a PCI-E x16 slot.
So I looked into the specs of my power supply. and the label says 12VA--/12A and 12VB--/18A. Do you think this thing could safely handle something like a GTS250 to hold me over?

TBH I'd just save up for a new computer.

Currently un-employed I may not even be able to get a gpu I am just trying to figure out my options. Trust me I'd loooove to have a sandy bridge build !

How about the 6670?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121442

I've has experience upgrading PC's pretty much the same as yours. I managed to fit a GTX 465 in one and a 6870 in the other, upgraded the PSU in both in order to power those cards. The one i linked to above is quite short so it will fit and consumes 66W which means it can be powered by the PCIe slot on your motherboard. This means you won't have to upgrade your PSU.
