Will I be able to use this card?

Hey, I really want to upgrade my graphics card for a better gaming experience, I have a Dell Xps 8300 Desktop and I was just wondering if the Asus GeForce GTX 650 Ti Nvidia Graphics Card, or the Asus 1GB GeForce GTX 560TI DirectCUII PCI-E Graphics Card, would fit in my PC, and would be compatible with my hardware. Thanks.
PC Specs:
Mainboard : Dell 0Y2MRG
Processor : Intel Core i5 2400 @ 3100 MHz
Physical Memory : 6144 MBDDR3-SDRAM
Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce 405
Hard Disk : Seagate ST31000524AS (1000GB)
Operating System : Windows 7 Home Premium Home Edition Media Center 6.01.7601 Service Pack 1 (64-bit)
DirectX : Version 11.00

Thanks again guys.

    I was mainly wondering if it would be compatible with my motherboard and if it would actually fit in the tower, i have no experience in building/upgrading PCs.

    What about the Asus 1GB GeForce GTX 560TI DirectCUII PCI-E Graphics Card, isn't that the best of the three? Its the most expensive and what I have seen of it is good.

    Ah yes I know what you mean now, slightly less power, for less money. Seems good but will it be compatable with my PC?

    Get a tape measure and see how much clearance you have inside your case.
    7850 dimentions are 8.15" x 4.13" x 1.38"

    Everything seems good except the length, there are two wires, SATA ports i think, around about 8 inches and the card is 8.15, there in the way.
    is there anything I can do?
