Do i have enough room for a video card upgrade?

post #1 of 4

As you can see, right below my video card is the ram. The current card I have now is a 250gts. If i plan to upgrade to a stronger card, which are bigger, will I have enough space or will it not fit because right now the bottom of the card is almost touching the ram slot thingy.

Any video card you get is gonna be that close to the ram slots. The only problem you should have will be the length and how many slots is will take up. But from you pictures it looks like you will be fine in both directions. But I would also look into possibly upgrading your power supply depending on what video card you get.

Pretty much any card including the GTX 580 will run on a 400w. You can measure how much length you have from the screw part for the GPUs of your case to the end of the case in the opposite direction. Then order any card at that size or lower and you should be fine.
